Over 23 contractors are facing a fight to retain places on one of London’s biggest construction frameworks.
The London Construction Programme major works framework is up for renewal and this time offers a potential pipeline of £5bn over the next five years.
Firms are now being invited to bid for places to deliver five different projects types covering: housing; education and leisure; capital projects: historical and heritage works; and highway and public realm projects.
The second generation framework will also be organised into project value lots from £1m to more than £20m.
It will replace the existing arrangement that expires in May. The present panel for the highest value works lot of over £5m is made up of Engie, Kier, Higgins, Osborne, Wates and Willmott Dixon.
2014-2019 framework partners
