Building services firm on the road to success with Highways England work

A building services and engineering consultancy firm has completed an undisclosed contract to support a new multi-million-pound infrastructure project by motorways and roads operator, Highways England.

Leeds-based FHP delivered a package of services including mechanical and electrical design services work alongside technical advice, around the construction of a £3.6m salt barn at the Green Park Business Park off the M62 near Newport, in East Yorkshire.

Capable of holding 3,500 tonnes of road gritting salt, the facility includes a workshop for vehicle maintenance, storage for snowploughs and other equipment, and a two-storey office.

It is also used as a site for deployment of year-round maintenance activities such as roadworks, grass cutting and litter-picking.

FHP worked with architects The Harris Partnership, project managers Carter Jonas and structural engineers Civic Engineers to ensure the scheme was successfully delivered.

Currently employing 56 people, this is the latest contract success for FHP, which is targeting sales revenues of more than £3.5m by the end of the year.

James Taylor, director of FHP’s Leeds office, said: “This is a prestigious project for us, showcasing our MEP capabilities to help support and deliver important infrastructure and detailed design work.

“We continue to develop our commercial offering and the Highways England success comes as we expect to see strong growth in 2023 on the back of a pipeline of forward orders.”
