Eight contractors have been chosen by SCAPE to help local authorities and public sector organisations deliver ambitious, community-focused construction projects up to a value of £7.5m from 26 August 2022
Public sector organisations using the new four-year Regional Construction framework will gain immediate access to established construction contractors and an extensive local supply chain.
This will facilitate projects that generate social value, training, apprenticeships and leave a positive legacy for local communities whilst helping them to achieve their net zero ambitions.
The list of contractors chosen includes:
- Jeakins Weir
- G F Tomlinson
- Lindum Group
- Ashe Construction
- Clegg Construction
- R G Carter
The existing Regional Construction framework reduced waste and increased local employment
This development follows SCAPE’s existing Regional Construction framework, which has successfully delivered 400 projects over the past four years. During this period, local spend and labour within 20 miles of each project accounted for 62% and 60% respectively of the framework’s output, with waste reduction from landfill achieving more than 96%.
With an increased value banding of up to £7.5million, the next generation framework will operate to provide public sector clients with a greater contractor choice before commissioning a project.
This is alongside a new ‘net zero-ready’ lifecycle agreement feature, which will support the public sector’s sustainability goals and provide an effective response to the climate emergency.
The framework is divided between four regions across the Midlands and East of England
- Lot 1 and 2 covers Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire
- Lot 3 and 4 covers Lincolnshire, Nottingham, Rutland
- Lot 5 and 6 covers Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire
- Lot 7 and 8 covers Cambridge, Norfolk, Peterborough, Suffolk
John Simons, group procurement director at SCAPE, said: “After receiving positive feedback from clients, we’ve enhanced the framework to provide our public sector colleagues with the tools to not only deliver value-driven infrastructure in their areas but support their journey toward a net zero built environment.
Mark Robinson, group chief executive at SCAPE, said: “The addition of a new lifecycle contract form as part of the framework’s ‘net zero ready’ offering is testament to SCAPE’s commitment to supporting clients with energy conservation and the operational efficiency and performance of their assets.
“The new framework will act as a vehicle for contractors to champion greener infrastructure and upskill their teams to be able to deliver on the sustainability ambitions across the Midlands and East of England.”
