Contractors including PP O’Connor and Connell Brothers have been chosen on a £20m framework covering high and low-rise demolition work across Greater Manchester.
The framework includes demolition schemes of all project values, and includes machine, explosive and high reach demolition; emergency responsive call-out work; and asbestos and waste removal.
It has been divided across threee lots: lot one covering planned demolition works; lot two covering emergency response demolition works only; and lot three, which covers demolition enabling and security works.
Clients the contractors will be carrying out works for include all 10 of Greater Manchester’s councils, alongside housing associations Salix Homes and City West Housing Trust.
Five contractors have been named on the first lot: Bagnall, based in Warrington; Connell Brothers, based in Salford; Liverpool-headquartered Oldham Brothers; Ardwick firm P McGuinness; and PP O’Connor, which has a head office in Irlam but plans to move to Trafford Park.
The list of five contractors was whittled down from 21 applicants.
P McGuinness has also been named as the sole contractor on lot two, while Eccles-based contractor Alan Franklin is the single contractor for lot three.
The framework, which first went out to tender in May this year, is expected to run for four year.
