East Midlands to see £500 million of property frameworks

Wates Construction has ousted Kier as sole contractor on a £133 million regional property framework for the local authority body East Midlands Property Alliance (EMPA).

 

The new four year framework is for construction works valued at between £500,000 and £7.5 million. Further EMPA frameworks worth around £375 million are expected to be announced soon 

 

Kier had worked for four years on the previous framework for the EMPA Provincial framework which is managed by local authority controlled central purchasing body Scape.

 

Two further frameworks, for Intermediate projects, worth a total of some £230 million, will be announced soon. Kier and Wates are both incumbents of the existing Intermediate frameworks. A Minor Works framework worth a total of as much as £140 million is also being tendered, with results expected shortly.

 

EMPA says it is committed to using a high percentage of local contractors and suppliers in the area of each project to maximise the benefits of the frameworks investments to the local economy.

 

Scape is wholly owned by a number of local authorities - Derby City, Derbyshire County, Gateshead, Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire County and Warwickshire County councils. It is defined as a Contracting Authority and Central Purchasing Body under EU procurement rules.

 

Scape has frameworks valued at £2.5Bn under its control across the country, including Major Works, Minor Works, Asset Management, Surveying and Design Services, Project Management and Quantity Surveying. It operates regional frameworks across the East Midlands for EMPA.
