construction framework

Scape Group has named the contractors on its four-year, £1.1bn Regional Construction framework

The framework will provide construction services for public sector schemes in the Midlands and East of England.

Eleven lots are divided into bands by project value, including Lower (up to £750,000), Intermediate (£500,000-£2.5m) and Upper (£1m-£5m).

The winning contractors are Seddon Construction, Lindum Group, John Graham Holdings, Jeakins Weir, GF Tomlinson, Fortem, Morgan Sindall, RG Carter Building, Conamar Building Services, Clegg Construction and Ashe Construction.

Scape said each contractor had been selected for their “extensive local knowledge and demonstrable experience of working collaboratively to deliver a range of public sector projects”.

The Regional Construction framework, which replaces the East Midlands Property Alliance framework, aims to take a stronger approach to demonstrating value for money and, as standard, measures social value via a TOMs (Themes, Outcomes, Measures) method development in collaboration with the Social Value Portal.

There are also KPIs for local spend and local employment, while the framework will ensure that at least one social enterprise is engage on each project.

Victoria Brambini, manging director of Scape Procurement, said: “The Regional Construction framework builds upon the EMPA framework, aiming to generate greater value for money and project success for the public sector across the region.

“By extending the Regional Construction framework’s reach into the East of England, we will be able to provide public sector organisations with access to a framework that not only delivers high quality and cost-effective services from contractors that have demonstrated the right balance of cost and quality, but crucially also has specific social value objectives.”
