Scape's construction framework hits £7bn

NCE stock business

Local government procurement body Scape Group’s National Construction Framework has increased in value to £7bn. 

The framework has the highest upper value for any UK framework and is currently valued at £7bn, an increase from £5.5bn.

Scape’s framework includes multiple lead contractors – a new development on previous schemes.

Successful bidders will be announced in February 2017, with the existing National Major Works framework replaced in May 2017.

“Since we announced the framework we have engaged in detailed market and client consultation which made it clear that increased values for the options within the framework are essential in helping public sector bodies meet their growing demand for high quality and cost-effective buildings,” said Scape Group chief executive Mark Robinson.

“We have listened and we have adjusted the upper value of this framework to take into account the anticipated demand for construction projects over its life. This view has not been impacted by recent political events, it is very much business as usual in providing our clients with scalable levels of efficiency and capacity.”
