University of Manchester appoints 20 to £260m framework

Henry Brothers Construction, GMI Construction Group, and Conlon Construction are among the contractors who have landed a spot on the work programme.

University of Manchester’s Construction Works Framework 2023 is broken down into four lots, with the smallest dedicated to projects that are between £1 and $450,000. The largest is for schemes of between £5m and £20m.

A university spokesperson said: “The university’s Construction Works Framework 2023 has been successful in appointing a number of contractors to undertake various types of construction works across campus under four lots ranging from £1 up to £20m.

“The works include demolition, new build, refurbishment, decoration, landscaping, and external works up to a total value of £260m.”

Henry Brothers managing director Ian Taylor said the company was “proud” to land a spot on the framework.

“Henry Brothers Construction initially began working with the university in early 2022 on the first phase of the refurbishment of the Chemistry building, and we are currently now delivering the second phase of this extensive project,” Taylor said.

In combination with the Oxford Road Corridor and masterplan, this whole part of the city is going to be pretty epic in a decade or so

The development of Manchester is going from strength to strength.
The only downside is that we haven’t got an integrated transport system to match.
