Morgan Sindall, the Midlands-headquartered construction firm, has been appointed to Lot 7 of Scape Group’s £1.1bn Regional Construction framework.
Lot 7 covers the largest projects within the framework, with a value between £1m and £5m.
The goal of the Regional Construction framework is to provide construction services for public sector projects in the Midlands and East of England.
The areas covered include Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.
The framework’s eleven lots are divided into bands by project value, which includes Lower (up to £750k), Intermediate (£500k - £2.5m) and Upper (£1m - £5m).
Sean Bowles, regional managing director at Morgan Sindall, said: “Scape is one of the most significant frameworks shaping the built environment and local communities in the UK today.
“Naturally, we are very pleased to have secured a place on the regional construction framework and to have the opportunity to build on our significant track record of delivery in the region.
“It is fantastic news to begin the New Year with, and we very much look forward to continuing our relationship with Scape and further demonstrating our commitment to delivering a sustainable future for the region.”
The four-year framework will have a total value of up to £1.1bn and will replace the East Midlands Property Alliance (EMPA) framework, which expires in early 2018.
Victoria Brambini, managing director of Scape Procure, added: “We are tremendously proud of the success of the EMPA framework, which has offered an excellent profile of contractors to the public sector in the region and has consistently created new opportunities for local SMEs within their supply chain.
“The Regional Construction framework builds upon the EMPA framework aiming to generate greater value for money and project success for the public sector across the region.
“By extending the Regional Construction framework’s reach into the East of England, we will be able to provide public sector organisations with access to a framework that not only delivers high quality and cost-effective services from contractors that have demonstrated the right balance of cost and quality but crucially also has specific social value objectives.
“We are looking forward to working with our clients and partners, both existing and new, to deliver even greater value for local communities in the period ahead.”
Scape’s Regional Construction framework has been developed to create a model that would offer the public sector some choice when it comes to contractors in order to ensure that they work with a team that has extensive local knowledge.
The current EMPA framework has seen high levels of demand from the public sector across the Midlands region, having completed over 500 projects to date, and has delivered significant levels of local spend, SME engagement and project success.
