Shortlisted bidders have been named for £650M worth of Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) capital works frameworks in South East and South West England.

 

The frameworks will be used for the design and build of Ministry of Defence construction projects individually valued up to £12M. Four or five winners in each region are due to be unveiled next summer, with shortlisted bidders now invited to submit tenders.

 

The total estimated value of the South East framework is up to £250M, with the South West framework worth up to £400M. Both will be four year deals with the option to extend for up to three further years.

 

The shortlisted bidders for the South East are Babcock Support Services, Balfour Beatty Group, John Graham Construction, Henry Brothers (Magherafelt), Interserve Construction, Kier Construction, Lend Lease Construction (EMEA), Miller Construction (UK), Morgan Sindall, Shepherd Construction, Vinci Construction UK and Volker Fitzpatrick.

Frameworks project manager John Jones said: “On this occasion we ran both competitions concurrently and received a total of 46 valid submissions as part of the PQQ process. The competition was strong and the bidders faced a rigorous evaluation process to be able to go forward to the tender stage.”

 

Bidders’ PQQs were assessed on quality assurance, technical, environmental management, health and safety, financial standing and equal opportunity and diversity criteria.

 

Mr Jones added: “The shortlisted bidders have one final opportunity to demonstrate their ability to compete for and deliver future build and design projects across the defence estate as part of the South East and the South West England Capital Works frameworks.”
