The North West Construction Hub has listed the nine construction partners to have won a place on its third Low Value Construction Framework, for regional projects valued at up to £3m.
Conlon Construction, Kier Construction, Harry Fairclough and Engie Regeneration have retained their positions on the four-year framework, while Seddon and Wates have been dropped – although they remain on NWCH’s medium and high-value frameworks.
The other successful contractors are: Eric Wright Group, John Turner Construction, Manchester & Cheshire Construction, Styles & Wood, and Warden Construction.
The firms were selected through an invitation to tender process backed by Manchester City Council. Each company had to demonstrate their ability to deliver high quality, value-for-money public sector projects that had a “real impact” on quality of life in local communities.
NWCH runs three frameworks, ranging from low-to-mid, which covers projects between £2m and £10m, to high-value schemes above £10m.
Since 2009, a total of 400 projects have been delivered to 100 clients through the NWCH frameworks, it says.
Jared Allen, director of capital programmes for Manchester City Council and chair of the NCWH board, said: “The NWCH procurement process is always a very rigorous process ensuring quality and cost-effective frameworks that comply with procurement rules.
“We are aware that a number of clients eagerly await the news to kick start many of their projects.”
