Construction Hub names third and final framework

Public sector procurement organisation the North West Construction Hub has named the winners of the low value framework contest to deliver projects of between £500,000 and £2m over the next four years.

The following contractors have been appointed to the low value framework:

  • Aspect Construction Contracts
  • Cruden Group
  • Conlon Construction
  • F Parkinson
  • Harry Fairclough Construction
  • Henry Boot Construction
  • Keepmoat Regeneration
  • Kier Services
  • Read Construction Holdings
  • Seddon Construction
  • Wates Construction

The framework is divided into 10 lots: five are construct only and five are design-and-build. The lots are further divided by county.

Local authorities use the hub as a readymade EU-compliant procurement vehicle to commission new schools, community buildings and a host of different sorts of projects.

The high value framework was awarded in August 2014 and medium value in March 2015.

However, the hub said it will scrap a separate engineering and professional services framework which launched amid much hoo-ha in 2012 following a two-year competition, the cost of which frustrated many bidders. The EPS framework will expire in May 2016 and is not being renewed, “primarily because take-up of the framework has not been as successful as anticipated.”
