Introducing the new Regional Construction framework
Our new four year framework, which operates across the Midlands and East of England, comprises 11 lots for projects valued at up to £5m.
The Regional Construction framework will provide construction services for public sector projects in the Midlands and East of England, covering Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.
The new framework’s eleven lots are divided into bands by project value, including Lower (up to £750k), Intermediate (£500k - £2.5m) and Upper (£1m - £5m). The four year framework will have a total value of up to £1.1bn.
The Regional Construction framework takes a strengthened approach to demonstrating value for money, and as standard, now measures social value, via a TOMs (Themes, Outcomes, Measures) method, developed in association with Social Value Portal. We will also continue to monitor project performance via additional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for local spend and local employment. The framework will also ensure that at least one social enterprise is engaged on every project.
The framework will replace the East Midlands Property Alliance (empa) framework, which expires in early 2018.
Our delivery partners on the new framework include a number of SMEs operating within the Midlands and East of England. The eleven contractors awarded are:
- Seddon Construction
- Lindum Group
- John Graham Holdings
- Jeakins Weir
- GF Tomlinson
- Morgan Sindall
- RG Carter Building
- Conamar Building Services
- Clegg Construction
- Ashe Construction
Each partner has been selected for their extensive local knowledge and demonstrable experience of working collaboratively to deliver a range of public sector projects.
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.
Victoria Brambini, Managing Director of Scape Procure
Victoria continues, "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."
The Regional Construction framework has been developed to create a model that will offer the public sector an element of choice of contractor and ensure that they work with a team that has extensive local knowledge of the Midlands and East of England.
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.
