Lancashire construction framework announced

Contractors have been selected for Lancashire County Council's £120m strategic framework agreement for construction.

The framework runs until 2018, and will include both new build and refurbishment projects from £100,000 to £15m in value.

There are four lot sizes divided by value, ranging from £100,000 to £15m.

In the first lot, for projects between £100,000 to £750,000, the winners were:

  • Warden Construction, Kirkham
  • Carefoot Construction, Longridge
  • F Parkinson, Blackpool

In the second lot, with a contract value of between £500,000 and £1.5m, the selected contractors were:

  • Keepmoat, Leyland
  • John Turner, Grimsargh
  • F Parkinson, Blackpool

Contractors selected for projects between £1m and £5m in value were:

  • Conlon, Bamber Bridge
  • Carefoot Construction, Longridge
  • John Turner, Grimsargh

For the highest value projects of between £4.5m and £15m, the winners were:

  • Keepmoat, Leyland
  • Conlon, Bamber Bridge

The decision for two further lots, relating to works with a value of between £25,000 and £150,000 and landscaping projects, is expected in July.

Longridge-based building company Walter Carefoot & Sons is on the agreement for the third successive time, and said that its first project will be £1.9m of works to Moorside Primary School in Lancaster.

Colin Carefoot, managing director, said: "We are really pleased to have been selected for this framework agreement once again. Lancashire County Council's selection procedure is an arduous but thorough process which examines all aspects of a company performance and is based on evidence, particularly performance on previously completed projects. We have had a long association with Lancashire County Council and are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them for at least the next four years under this agreement and beyond."

Carefoot is also on framework panels with Bolton Council and Cheshire East Council.
