NEW General Building framework

Arc Partnership Limited has submitted a Contract Notice to procure the second-generation of the General Building framework, to support the delivery of projects across Nottinghamshire County Council's wide-ranging property portfolio, which includes the iconic County Hall.

The opportunity to bid will be open to individual organisations, consortia, joint ventures or other similar arrangements, with a maximum of four contractors appointed to each lot across the framework.

The cumulative value is expected to be £16.5m over the duration of the framework.
