Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has announced a shortlist of 10 bidders for its future commercial arrangements for the delivery of large-scale construction projects across the UK Defence estate.
The shortlisted bidders are: Balfour Beatty Group; Bam Construction; Carillion Construction (trading as Carillion UK Construction); Interserve Construction; Kier Regional; Lend Lease Construction (EMEA); Miller Construction (UK); Morgan Sindall; Skanska UK; and Wates Construction.
The National Capital Works Framework is being developed and procured by the DIO Next Generation Estate Contracts (NGEC) team. It will be used to deliver construction projects valued up to £50M, alongside six regional frameworks for projects valued below £12M.
The frameworks will deliver the majority of future MOD construction projects below £50M that are currently delivered through the existing regional prime contracts or by standalone contracts.
