RWO secures string of civils contracts


Engineering firm RWO has signed new multi-million pound residential contracts.

The Newcastle-based company provides contract design and civil engineering services as part of plans to create affordable new homes on the former Washington FC site currently under development by housing company Karbon Homes.

It also supports an affordable housing project in Spennymoor and Brierly Homes developments in Yorkshire, including locations in Pateley Bridge, Swainby and Woodfield.

The green light has also been given to engineering plans to build dozens of new Gleeson homes in Aspatria and Cleator Mills in Cumbria, and developers are planning 220 new affordable homes in Workington.

Alex Erskine, Director of Civils at RWO, said, “These projects recognize our ability to strategically view developments from an engineering and planning design perspective for clients while delivering high quality labor and management services.

“Despite the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic and recession, residential construction remains a very strong sector for us. We anticipate that more strategic locations will emerge over the next 18 months to support further growth in our civilian workload.”
