Competition: Birmingham City Council framework

Birmingham Library
  • Comment

Birmingham City Council (BCC) has launched a new framework covering design, construction and facilities management services

The six-year agreement is divided into two separate lots: the first covering construction projects and the second involving facilities management. The council currently spends around £25 million a year on professional services and £40 million a year on new construction projects.

Architects, project managers, quantity surveyors, engineers and others bidding for places on the framework will be invited to review the council’s ongoing plans to replace its existing Construction West Midlands framework lot covering construction projects worth more than £500,000.

Announcing the opportunity, Birmingham City Council interim leader Ian Ward said: ‘With value for money seen as the primary driver for these services, we are looking for the right organisation with which to establish and sustain a long-term positive strategic relationship. We also seek to build on the great success of our regional frameworks in providing a new first-class construction framework for partners across the West Midlands to access.

‘The council is undergoing great change, becoming a more agile organisation, working and delivering services more closely with partners; and hence we expect our property needs will change. Therefore we need our strategic partner to help us to better understand our assets so we can rationalise and maximise their use and value.’

Birmingham is midway through a major overhaul of its central area, focused around a new HS2 terminal and a £193 million library (pictured) by Mecanoo. The latest framework will provide project design and delivery services across the city and in surrounding West Midlands areas.

Teams will be appointed for an initial period of six years, which may be extended by a further four years. The framework is part of the council’s plans to replace Lot 7 of the existing Construction West Midlands agreement, which is due to expire in two years.

The deadline for applications is 13 October.
