Contractors are being asked to pitch for a monster £2.5bn framework covering public sector construction contracts across the south east of England.
The South East and London Construction Framework for Major Projects is being progressed by Hampshire County Council, but will be for use by other public sector organisations in the region.
The four-year framework is expected to be worth between £1bn and £2.5bn. A maximum of 10 contractors are likely to be picked for the contract.
The construction work will include new build, extensions, renovations, repairs and maintenance, and site infrastructure works. Projects will be a mixture of construct only, design and build, plus develop and construct.
Building projects that will be delivered through the framework include schools, libraries, offices, social services properties, museums, leisure facilities, housing developments, universities, health service buildings, police buildings, emergency services buildings, and others used by public services providers.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 23 August. A maximum of 20 contractors will be invited to tender.
