One framework covers residential-only construction work, and is worth £100m over four years.
The other covers non-residential work, and is valued at £60m, also over four years.
Eight contractors will be selected for each framework.
Both frameworks cover refurbishment and new build. Continuous improvement, collaboration and measurement by key performance indicators are likely to be features of the framework. The successful contractors will be expected to consider opportunities to recruit and train persons as part of the workforce delivering this project.
Interested contractors will need to complete and return a pre-qualification questionnaire by 10 January 2012.
