Winners Unveiled On Scape's £1.1bn Regional Construction Framework

Construction News Image
More than 10 contractors have won a place on Scape Group's new £1.1 billion Regional Construction Framework.

The four-year programme, which will provide construction services for public sector projects in the Midlands and East of England, will replace the East Midlands Property Alliance (empa) framework which expires in early 2018.

The 11 successful 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.

Each delivery partner will cover work in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.

The framework's 11 lots are divided into bands by project value, including Lower (up to £750k), Intermediate (£500k - £2.5m) and Upper (£1m - £5m).

Victoria Brambini, Managing Director of Scape Procure, said: "We are tremendously proud of the success of the empa framework, which has offered an excellent profile of contractors to the public sector in the region and has consistently created new opportunities for local SMEs within their supply chain. 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. We are looking forward to working with our clients and partners, both existing and new, to deliver even greater value for local communities in the period ahead."
