The London boroughs of Islington, Camden and Hackney are seeking contractors for a £1.2bn construction framework.
The framework covers infrastructurework, as well as new build work, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance for residential, education, health, community and mixed use schemes.
The contract notice states: “The framework scope will cover roof top extensions and all construction works associated with this development form including, where considered appropriate, works to existing related building/asset fabric, infrastructure or finishes.”
A source from Islington Council told New Civil Engineer: “[It] is a new build framework and this predominantly will be for new homes only but invariably our schemes have taken on a broader development.”
The source added: “It will be predominantly housing contractors and it will be for them to engage with civil engineering companies whether they have it as part of their umbrella of their existing organisation or it is something they have to buy in from a subcontractor civil engineering firm.”
The four year framework is divided into three lots according to project value band: up to £5M; £5M to £20M; and over £20M.
Bidders have until 24 April to register interest, with procurement documents available on the ProContract website.
Those wishing to tender will only be considered on the framework for a maximum of two lots which can be any combination of the three lots available. Tenderers must make clear which two lots they are applying for in their selection questionnaire submission.
