North West £1bn buildings framework launched

3124339 3123362 constructionsite

Manchester City Council has launched a search for contractors to work on its £1bn construction framework for modular and portable buildings cross the North West.

The council, trading under the name North West Construction Hub (NWCH), said the projects let under the North West Construction Hub Medium Value Framework would be of a new-build nature, including demolition, development, refurbishment or re-modelling of existing properties owned.

Building types range from sports stadia, civic and education to buildings relating to airports, water transport and road, bus, railway and carpark buildings.

Regions Cumbria, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside have been separated into five lots for contracts between £2M to £5M with a sixth lot covering the whole area for contracts between £5M to £10M.

Under the framework, tenderers can apply for all six lots with no restrictions on the number of lots awarded. Sixteen companies are expected to be included on the framework.

The framework is expected to be awarded for an initial term of three years with an option to extend for up to one additional year.
