Created to support public sector construction and development in the region, across all sectors including education, health, local authority, leisure developments, SCF Construct is available to all public bodies in the South East, London and the South West.

The framework will give public sector organisations access to a full range of public sector construction solutions and includes access to construct-only or design and build, construction, and management services.

For its 5th generation, SCF has chosen contractors that can demonstrate exemplary carbon benchmarking assessment for all builds and has prioritised carbon retrofit capabilities as part of its industry leading Carbon and Social Value targets.

SCF will operate two-stage open book project delivery, the Government-recommended delivery method.

Adam Sanford, SCF Operations Lead, London & South East said: “It was important for us in approaching this latest SCF Construct bidding process to ensure that it was an open and transparent process to attract the widest set of contractors.

“As a result, we are delighted to have some new faces working with us, bringing valuable new expertise to our construction schemes.”

Kingsley Clarke, SCF Operations Lead, South West said: “Via our new sub £5m lots, we’ve also opened the door to SME contractors in the South West and we’re very much looking forward to working with them and their local supply chains on some innovative schemes in the region.”

The new generation SCF Construct complements the current SCF Residential and SCF Consult frameworks which have delivered over £8 billion worth of combined construction schemes in the last 16 years since SCF was first established.
