Morgan Sindall and Kier have won places on a £500m building framework for the South East of England.
The Property Construction Partnership Framework, operated by Kent County Council, covers new builds, extensions, alterations and refurbishments to public sector buildings, especially schools. Jobs on other types of property, including housing, could also be procured, while there is scope for hard or soft landscaping work to be covered.
A total of four firms have landed slots on the framework. The two others are Kent-based contractors Baxall Construction and WW Martin.
Opening next month, the framework will run for four years and can potentially be extended for a further two.
Although it is being provided by Kent County Council, it can be accessed by all local authorities across the South East. The nature of contracts tendered can range from professional services, design and build or construction. Single-stage and two-stage appointment methods may be used.
The minimum project value is set at £1m, with no upper limit.
Bidding for slots on the framework opened in September last year.
Amey and Gallagher were selected to work for a £250m highways framework in Kent in November 2021.
