Mace Construct and Willmott Dixon Jointly Appointed to ProCure23 Framework
06 April 2022
 

Mace Construct and Willmott Dixon have been jointly appointed by the Crown Commercial Service to all three lots of the NHS ProCure23 Framework.

The appointment will allow the two UK contractors to work together on NHS construction projects. 

Willmott Dixon and Mace both have experience in delivering UK healthcare construction projects, from Mace’s delivery of the award-winning new Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital for UCLH to Willmott Dixon’s Pears building for the Royal Free Charity.

 

P23 Framework

 

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.

P23 is the fourth generation of the ProCure framework for the design and construction of NHS capital projects with an expected cumulative spend of £9 billion during its lifespan.

P23 enables NHS clients to quickly access suitable partners to support in initiatives such as business case development, sustainability, design, construction (including modern methods), disruption mitigation, benefit realisation and optimised occupation.

The appointment to all three lots means that the two contractors will be available to deliver work across the three value bands identified by the framework: regional projects valued below £20 million, projects between £20 million to £70 million and projects worth more than £70 million. 

Simon Corben, Director of Estates and Facilities and Head of Profession at NHS England and NHS Improvement, said: “ProCure23 builds on almost two decades of success of ProCure as a route to market for NHS capital projects. The framework has been split into three lots to enable greater reach into all aspects of the NHS's capital requirements including increasing our estate’s capacity through new builds, addressing backlog maintenance, or reconfiguring spaces to better meet the health and care needs of our local communities.”
