nmcn will help to build ultra-reliable ‘Full Fibre’ broadband

Huthwaite-based national construction firm nmcn plc has been awarded a lucrative contract by Openreach to support a massive £12 billion project that’s bringing ultrafast, ultrareliable ‘Full Fibre’ broadband to millions of homes and businesses throughout the UK.

nmcn will play a crucial role in building new fibre infrastructure to premises in Arnold, and there will also be additional network build in previously announced locations in the East Midlands including Nottingham, Gedling, Broxtowe, Rushcliffe and Derby. The detailed planning activity for the build is already under way and construction is due to start in the coming months.

The contract award follows a competitive tender process and will see nmcn supporting Openreach’s ambition to build ‘Full Fibre’ infrastructure to 20 million premises throughout the UK by the mid-to-late 2020s – delivering significant economic, social and environmental benefits for urban communities.

Openreach’s Full Fibre network is already available to more than three million homes and businesses across the UK and nmcn is one of nine partners to win contracts, which will see that extended to at least a further two million premises. As part of the contract, nmcn will be responsible for construction tasks such as surveying, building, testing and supporting Openreach to commission the network so that customers can place orders.

John Maloney, Managing Director of Telecoms at nmcn, said: “At nmcn we are committed to our vision of having a positive impact on everything we touch and the results of this prestigious contract will certainly benefit thousands of households across the Midlands by providing ultrafast and reliable Full Fibre broadband. We look forward to further developing our working relationship with Openreach to deliver this project.”

nmcn is currently recruiting people to its existing specialist Telecoms team to help deliver this project and Openreach will be offering world class training as part of this build programme, which includes partner use of its 12 training schools across the UK.
