The latest generation Regional Construction framework will be used to deliver projects worth up to £7.5m.
A parallel lotting structure for each sub-region is being introduced for the first time to give clients the option to engage early with two contractors before awarding a project.
Jeakins Weir, Stepnell, GF Tomlinson, Lindum Group, Ashe Construction, Conamar, Clegg Construction and R G Carter have all renewed with Stepnell joining for the first time.
The new four-year framework comes into force next month and will build on the positive impact of Scapes’s existing regional construction framework. So far this has successfully delivered 400 projects over the past four years.
During this period, local spend and labour within 20 miles of each project accounted for 62% and 60% respectively of the framework’s output, with waste reduction from landfill achieving more than 96%.
Mark Robinson, group chief executive at Scape, said: “The addition of a new lifecycle contract form as part of the framework’s ‘net zero ready’ offering is testament to our commitment to supporting clients with energy conservation and the operational efficiency and performance of their assets.
“The new framework will act as a vehicle for contractors to champion greener infrastructure and upskill their teams to be able to deliver on the sustainability ambitions across the Midlands and East of England.”
