Ten contractors named for £4bn education framework

4 Nov 13 The Education Funding Agency has named 10 contractors that are set to share a £4bn workload as part of its national construction framework

The framework is broke down into a northern and a southern panel, with nine contractors on each. Seven contractors appear on both lists.

The selected contractors are:

Lot 1 - North

  • Balfour Beatty Group Plc
  • BAM Construction Ltd
  • Bowmer & Kirkland Limited
  • Carillion Construction Limited
  • Galliford Try Construction Ltd
  • Kier
  • Sir Robert McAlpine
  • Thomas Vale Construction Plc

The new framework replaces the contractors' framework that was launched in November 2009, that itself replaced the 2007 Partnerships for Schools national framework.

The previous list had 12 contractors for each of the two regions.

Wates Construction managing director for education Stephen Beechey said: "It is fantastic news that the EFA has chosen to continue with the contractors framework, and we are delighted to have been chosen as a partner.

 “This £4bn framework will help deliver vitally important school projects across England. Today’s news demonstrates the EFA’s commitment to addressing the shortage in high-quality facilities and school places, which will be crucial in providing the best possible educational outcomes for the greatest number of schoolchildren.

“We look forward to supporting the EFA in the next stage of the Priority Schools Building Programme as we move into 2014."
