The North West Construction Hub has launched the re-tender of its medium value construction framework.
Eleven contractors currently hold places on the framework: Bam, Conlon, Galliford Try, ISG, Keepmoat, Kier, Laing O’Rourke, Seddon, Vinci, Wates and Willmott Dixon.
The NWCH has said that it will invite up to 16 companies to tender. The framework is to last for three years from next March, and companies are invited to tender for all six lots.
Manchester City Council, which acts as administrator for the NWCH, is running the process, and has invited expressions of interest by 15 October.
The framework will be split into five sub-regional lots for work priced between £2m and £5m, with separate lots for Cumbria, Cheshire, Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester, while a sixth lot will cover work of £5m to £10m in all areas.
To date, the NWCH as a whole has delivered on 366 projects for 101 clients, with a value of £1.8bn. The high-value framework has also been re-tendered this year.
