Scape has announced that up to £1.1billion of projects have been given the green light as part of its £7billion national construction framework
The organisation has revealed that during the six months since it was announced, public sector organisations have utilised the framework to procure projects with a combined value of £198 million, bringing the total value of work under way or in the pipeline to over £1.1 billion.
In April it was revealed that Lendlease, Robertson, Wates and Willmott Dixon had all won places on the £7 billion framework, described as the highest-value framework ever procured in the UK.
According to the AJ’s sister title Construction News, major projects confirmed include Liverpool City Council’s Venmore Dementia Hub in Anfield and the refurbishment of Bolton’s Octagon Theatre (pictured), both led by Willmott Dixon.
Robertson meanwhile will deliver 55 new affordable homes as part of the regeneration of Raploch for Stirling City Council.
The national framework is divided into five service areas by geography and value, with a combined upper value of £7 billion across four years.
Scape Procure managing director Victoria Brambini said: ’We launched the Scape National Construction framework in May of this year to add both depth and breadth to our national offer, including a greater presence than ever before in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
’Such a strong pipeline of projects as we complete mobilisation is a real vote of confidence in our approach and the value our frameworks deliver for the public sector.’
Lendlease Europe MD for construction Neil Martin said: “By focusing on early engagement with our clients and supply chain, Lendlease, in partnership with Scape, will add value and provide competitive cost certainty on what will be some of the UK’s most exciting and complex projects.”
