The initial three-year deal, worth £3m, will see Faithful+Gould providing quantity surveyor and contract management support in the areas of procurement and contract management.
Faithful+Gould, along with parent company Atkins, is involved in other areas of the evolving new nuclear sector including being part of the Engage consortium, which has recently signed a €150m contract as the architect engineer on the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project in the South of France.
Alan Cumming, EDF Energy’s deputy director of procurement, said: “This is a strategic long term consultancy agreement which will see Faithful+Gould providing crucial support to our procurement and contract management team.
“Procurement is one the cornerstones of any large scale development. The support Faithful+Gould provides will play a large role in its delivery.”
