Bid Writing for Network Rail CP7 Tender

We have recently supported a tier one construction company with their tender for a Network Rail Control Period (CP7) contract. We undertook storyboarding and bid writing for responses on: 1) Strong Safety Performance; 2) Construction Design & Management Regulations (CDM) and Common Safety Method (CSM); 3) Learning and Innovation; and 4) Cleaner and Greener.

We applied our experience from supporting clients with Network Rail CP5 tenders, Network Rail Overhead Line Electrification (OLE) tenders and numerous HS2 bids. Also, many of the aspects of highways tenders are similar to rail tenders, because projects involve construction activities on long linear features with similar considerations, such as environmental management, stakeholder engagement, etc. Therefore, we also used knowledge gained from the Highways England Smart Motorways Alliance tender.

The result of the CP7 tender will be announced later this year – we look forward to the outcome.
