Firms notified of £1bn mid-sized projects framework

Hull-based national framework provider Pagabo has notified firms of a £1bn framework for medium-sized projects.

This will be the second iteration of the medium works framework, which will run for four years from January 2023.

It will replace the first-generation framework that expires in December. Morgan Sindall, Vinci and Interserve were among the firms selected for the 2019 version.

The framework is divided into three lots, valued at an upper limit of £10m since it covers mid-sized public-sector projects.

Lot 1 covers the value band from £250,000 to £1m, while Lot 2 includes work of between £1m and £5m. Clients can access the highest value projects with Lot 3, valued at £5m to £10m. Up to nine contractors will be selected for each region under each lot.

The framework has spots reserved for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), so that smaller suppliers can access work on it and clients have a breadth of contractors to choose from.

Pagabo managing director Jason Stapley said: “It’s really important that clients have access to the best providers on the market – not just the big businesses. That’s why we reserve a number of appointments specifically for SMEs. We know how important having that choice is to clients, as well as the increased levels of social value and positive impact benefits that come from working with SMEs, particularly on a local level.”

Some of the schemes covered in the first-generation framework included the £1.4m National Centre for Craft and Design for a district council and the £10m Swallowtail Place for a housing trust.
