Brighton appoints Project Centre as Framework Consultant

Project Centre, the traffic design consultancy division of NSL, has been appointed by Brighton & Hove City Council as a Framework Transport Consultant. The appointment positions Project Centre, which has an office in the area, to deliver major projects.

The main contracting council is West Sussex County Council, who will also use the Framework in order to procure services.

The appointment comes as a result of Brighton securing £52.4m of investment to boost its local economy and support jobs, infrastructure and transport, and strengthens Project Centre’s ambitions in the region.

Project Centre has undertaken work in the region, which includes the South Downs Bridleway in 2012, in cooperation with the South Downs National Park Authority. Project Centre developed the preliminary proposals for the bridleway to run between Woodingdean and Falmer, of strategic importance and providing an important link for non-motorised users wishing to access the cluster of key attractions around Falmer. This includes the University of Brighton, Falmer train station, Amex Stadium, Stanmer Park, and the University of Sussex.  Project Centre also undertook the urban realm improvements study for the Cycle Centre building, which is behind Brighton station, as well as various road safety audits.

Kevin Donnelly, Managing Director of Project Centre, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on Brighton & Hove Council’s Transport Professional Services Framework. This is a significant win for Project Centre and a great opportunity for us to build on the current success of our Brighton Office. We are looking forward to working with Brighton & Hove on a whole range of exciting projects, over the next four years, to deliver world class infrastructure for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists within the public realm.”
