Winners picked for latest NWCH framework

Big names including Laing O’Rourke, ISG, Kier, Eric Wright, and Wates have secured a place on the North West Construction Hub’s medium value framework, covering projects between £2m and £10m.

Including six lots, five sub-regional and one covering the whole of the North West, the framework is available to public bodies across the region.

Wates, Harry Fairclough, Robertson, and Engie have been the most successful in the latest iteration of the framework, winning a slot on all six lots, while Warden Construction has secured a place on all five sub-regional lots, while missing out on the region-wide lot.

Bam, Seddon, Vinci, and Willmott Dixon were all on the previous iteration of the framework, which ran between 2014 and 2018, but have not won a place this time around; Willmott Dixon is understood not to have bid for this iteration of the framework.

The winning contractors are listed below.

Jared Allen, chair of the NWCH board, said: “I would like to congratulate all the contractors who have been successful in securing a place on the new Medium Value Construction Framework. I would also like to personally thank all other contractors for their participation in the tender process for the 3rd generation of the Medium Value Construction Framework and wish them well for future procurement.

“The NWCH procurement process is always a very challenging and robust process due to the significant time spent on developing processes to ensure quality and cost-effective frameworks that comply with procurement rules.

“With that in mind we are very excited to welcome and work with the newly procured contractor partners for the next period of Medium Value Construction Framework. We are aware that a number of clients eagerly await the news to kick start many of their projects.”

The NWCH re-procured its £1.5bn high-value framework last year; Place North West revealed the winners including Bowmer + Kirkland, Seddon, and Eric Wright in December.

The hub’s low-value framework, covering projects worth up to £3m, is currently being procured.
