Four chosen for £7bn Scape framework

After a lengthy tender process, Scape has chosen four contractors for its new national construction framework.

Willmott Dixon, Robertson, Wates and Lendlease have been appointed as lead contractors for Scape’s national construction framework.

The framework is expected to help deliver a range of projects including regeneration schemes, schools, universities and colleges, hospitals, central government buildings and housing.

Potential total value of the framework is £7bn, Scape says.

Scape chief executive Mark Robinson said: “The competition for this framework was fierce, and the calibre of bids extremely high. Willmott Dixon, Robertson, Wates and Lendlease evidenced the right blend of quality and value offers, along with the expertise and capacity to deliver the diverse needs of the public sector both now and in the future. The possible Brexit cost to the construction sector due to a loss of EU talent, the increased costs of building material imports and higher tariffs could be significant. Therefore a robust and stable delivery model led by strong contractors and supported by local enterprise, will be an important delivery option for the public sector as we progress through the next four years.

"The quality of our built environment underpins the economic growth and attractiveness of the UK from an inward investment perspective, so facilitating their delivery is vital to the health of the wider economy. The national construction framework, structured with multiple lead contractors, ensures public sector bodies have capacity and expertise at their fingertips. Governed by our rigorous performance management processes, we will ensure that this framework will continue our heritage of speed and quality of delivery, with social value sitting at the heart of project success.”

Willmott Dixon has been handed Northern Ireland despite having no presence there. However, it has previously partnered with Farrans on other Scape frameworks for Northern Ireland projects.

The National Construction framework will sit alongside the national minor works framework, led by Kier and the empa framework, which is set to be replaced by the regional construction framework in early 2018.
