There are already some interesting projects lined up with clients who have been eagerly awaiting this announcement.”

Conlon commercial director Darren Lee said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected for the high value framework. As a northwest regional contractor we have completed 24 NWCH projects to date, on both the low and medium frameworks over the past 6 years. We are looking forward to our first high value project and the opportunity to promote the continuing success of this collaborative framework.”

ISG framework director Neil Walker said: “As a framework partner on the North West Construction Hub’s medium value framework since 2010, we are delighted to see both a continuation and expansion of this partnership by securing places on two lots across the high value framework. The significance of the North West Construction Hub in delivering the vital infrastructure that supports our communities cannot be underestimated. As a forum for sharing best practice and innovation, fostering strong collaboration and focusing on driving efficiencies throughout the build process, this framework is a stand-out performer and an exemplar of how public/private partnerships generate real value and deliver much-needed facilities in the shortest possible timeframe.”
