Since 2010 the high and medium value frameworks combined have been used by 57 customers on 124 projects with a total construction value of £783m.

The outgoing framework contained Kier, Laing O'Rourke, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall and Wates.

The same contractors all the time, who are tied up in national deals with merchants who’s head offices are based outside the North West, great stuff, this wont help smaller independent businesses grow at all.

Sid, I can advise there are at least 3 different companies on the list. All of the companies have offices in the North West, and utilise the services of local SME’s.
