Bidding starts for Pagabo £1bn refit and refurb deal

The framework worth an estimated £1bn will run for four years from March 2023 and will provide a compliant and collaborative route to market for public and private sector clients to procure refit and refurbishment works valued at £50,000 and above.

Around 20 firms secured places on the first framework with Osborne, ISG, Graham, Overbury, Vinci, Wates and Willmott Dixon taking the major project lot.

Five value-based lots


  • Lot 1 – £50k to £500k
  • Lot 2 – £500k to £1m
  • Lot 3 – £1m to £5m
  • Lot 4 – £5m to £15m
  • Lot 5 – £15m+

Under these lots, up to nine contractors will be allocated to each regional sub-lot, comprising six core and three reserve suppliers.

Several of these places are reserved for SMEs to ensure fair access for organisations of any size, to provide ample choice for clients, and to ensure the generation of maximum positive social impact for communities.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “This second-generation of the framework has been developed by feedback from the contracting authority, existing client organisations and interested suppliers that were familiar with the original version.

“Client organisations that use the framework and the appointed contractors will have access to a free version of Loop’s social value software for all procured projects – a feature of all Pagabo’s frameworks.

“This access will allow reporting so that it is easier demonstrate the social value being generated through projects.”

Red Kite Learning Trust will be the contracting authority for the new agreement, continuing its role from the current iteration of the framework.

Interested suppliers must submit bid documents through the procurement portal by 11 January.
