Project management firm SNC-Lavalin has won a six-year deal to ensure that UK government offices meet enhanced sustainability criteria as part of its aim to accelerate its net zero agenda.

SNC-Lavalin Engineering Services will act as the government’s net zero and life cycle replacement programme delivery partner, and will be responsible for more than 4m sq ft of office space.

The firm will provide the Government Property Agency with technical delivery services, including design, identification of decarbonisation interventions and priorities, as well as programme and supply chain management.

Philip Hoare, president, Atkins, Engineering, Design & Project Management, SNC-Lavalin, said: “Engineering plays a critical role in helping attain the ambitious net zero targets that numerous governments around the world have established. This appointment puts us at the forefront of the UK government’s net zero agenda and will see our experts pushing the boundaries of innovation and technology to help transform public sector office space.”

Steven Boyd, CEO of the Government Property Agency, added: “Delivering a better, greener portfolio of government offices will not only reduce carbon emissions and operating costs, but also bring important investment across the UK as we begin to recover from the covid-19 pandemic.”
