"We have used the Scape framework for some years utilising Kier under Minor Works agreement. The nature of the framework allows us to engage very quickly with Kier and cuts out many of the obstacles that would be in the way using traditional tendering or other frameworks. We have multiple schemes each year and Scape have proven to be an incredibly useful and successful vehicle in delivering our projects."
- Adam Shepheard, Capital Projects Development Manager, Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
