NEW construction framework

We are pleased to announce that we have submitted a Prior Information Notice to procure our next generation regional construction framework to serve the East Midlands and East of England, which is fully compliant with the UK's procurement regulations.

Following engagement with public sector clients, the latest enhancements to the framework will provide further flexibility by offering a commercial choice option in addition to a direct award procurement pathway, as part of the contractor selection process.

An important new feature of the framework is the lifecycle agreement that will be supported by the successful delivery partners, which will enable the adoption and achievement of ambitious sustainability goals and deliver vastly improved buildings performance and support an effective response to the climate emergency.

Framework structure

The framework will operate for a period of four years from 2022 to 2026.

It is envisaged that each lot across the framework will be open to bids from individual organisations, consortia, joint ventures or other similar arrangements.

We will look to appoint a single entity to each lot across the framework.
