Nick Hopcraft

Nick has a keen interest in developing strong relationships within industry including early contractor involvement, framework contracts and Smart Motorways. These themes are currently of significant relevance to industry practitioners as collaborative procurement practices are seen in the work of major clients from Network Rail and HS2 to Highways England and its Routes to Market procurement strategy.
