Nine construction companies have been chosen for the £500M Cambridge University framework scheme.

The scheme — part of the university’s £600M capital building project — will include the construction of laboratories, academic spaces, catering, accommodation and sports facilities.

The framework is broken down into three value bands: the first being for projects up to £5M, the second for works between £5M–£30M, and the third for projects valued at more than £30M.

Balfour Beatty, BAM Construct, Bouygues, Kier and Laing O’Rourke have been selected for projects worth more than £30M. Kier, RG Carter and SDC have been chosen for the second band of projects, and SDC, RG Carter, Quinn, Kier and Conamar will deliver projects up to £5M.

Paul Sheffield, managing director of Laing O’Rourke’s Engineering Enterprise, said: “It is great to be able to extend our deep and long-standing relationship with the University of Cambridge. There is a wide range of projects available through the framework and we are excited to be given the opportunity to put our expertise to good use and meet the needs of such a prestigious institution.”

The framework will last for two years, with the possibility of a three-year extension.
