Civils firm wanted for up to £1.5bn of work

Public sector construction portal Scape is to appoint an infrastructure delivery contractor for work worth up to £1.5bn.

Scape, which has contracts with Willmott Dixon, Kier, Wates and several smaller firms in the East Midlands, is used by many councils and other public bodies across the UK for buildings work.

Now it is looking to find a contractor or consortium to take on major and minor civil engineering works.

Scape chief executive Mark Robinson said: “The framework will be able to deliver on large-scale, high profile projects such as associated infrastructure around HS2.

“However it will meet the immediate need of the large number of public sector bodies to carry out projects such as flood defence work, footbridges, public realm and local road network improvements.”

The opportunity will be outlined to the construction industry at a market awareness event on Friday 16 May at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel.

To register your interest in attending the event, email: with ‘Scape National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure Framework Market Awareness’ in the subject field and include the organisation name and names and position of each attendee within the organisation.

Are major national frameworks a good thing for the industry? Let us know your opinions in the comments box below.
