Public-sector framework provider Northwest Construction Hub is renewing a scheme for works in Manchester that could reach a value of £1.5bn.
The high-value framework will replace the previous 2019 edition of the scheme and will launch next year, running until 2026.
It comprises three lots, with the lowest value band for projects between £8m-15m. The medium band is reserved for works between £15m-35m, while the highest and last band will include projects above £35m.
Firms that win spots on the framework can be accessed for work on various projects by Manchester City Council. These range from the construction of meteorological stations to crematoriums, airport buildings to museums, and industrial builds to shopping centres.
Work assigned via the framework will be varied and will include new builds, demolitions, and refurbishments. Major contractors such as Balfour Beatty, Kier, ISG and Wates all won spots on the 2019 framework.
In February, top tier contractors Morgan Sindall, Kier and Galliford Try were among those selected on a £1.8bn framework for work in the North West.
