MONTREAL, April 16, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ – EDAROTH â a wholly owned subsidiary of SNC-Lavalin’s (TSX: SNC) Atkins business â is to provide end-to-end development solutions as part of a £1bn housing framework in Wales, United Kingdom.
Under the four-year agreement, EDAROTH will work with local authorities and housing associations to help meet housing targets through the provision of design and engineering expertise, the latest off-site manufacturing techniques and construction management partnerships which allow energy-efficient new homes to be built at speed, volume and at a significantly reduced whole life cost compared to traditional new builds.
EDAROTH’s end-to-end development solutions also prioritise brownfield and under-utilised land within existing communities to build homes which help address social and economic challenges.
“There is a pressing need for affordable homes in the UK and elsewhere – this global challenge is a long-standing problem which will only be solved through innovation and new ways of working,” said Philip Hoare, President, Atkins, Engineering, Design & Project Management, SNC-Lavalin.
