UK framework provider Pagabo has announced the appointment of 48 suppliers to the new £1.56bn civils and infrastructure framework, which will start from 1 June this year.
Buckingham Group, John Sisk and Son, Galliford Try Construction are among the 48 firms figuring in these awards.
The new framework will continue until May 2026
Through this framework, local authorities and public sector bodies stand to acquire a variety of projects such as rail, nuclear, bridges, roads, maritime, telecommunications, water, and alternative power projects.
The core and reserve suppliers have been appointed across the four framework lots, which feature value bands of up to £30m and above.
Pagabo managing director Jason Stapley said: “We’re really pleased to see our new civils and infrastructure framework go live with a range of excellent suppliers, especially after such great interest and demand from the market. The framework, which is the first that Queen Elizabeth Facilities Ltd will be acting as the contracting authority for, will provide clients with that all-important confidence in the suppliers they choose for their projects.
“Providing the vehicle for compliant procurement of built environment works means that we have a big responsibility when it comes to helping meet the ambitious net zero targets set out by government. We are committed to working with public sector bodies to achieve this through consideration of emerging technologies and project controls, while connecting clients with the right suppliers.”
The civils and infrastructure framework links clients with the contractors for all construction projects valued more than £500,000.
Providers had to go through a PCR2015 compliant tender process and showcase their financial suitability and related experience for them to be considered for the civils and infrastructure framework.
