The Procurement Hub, a procurement specialist that is part of Places for People, have named Willmott Dixon as preferred bidder to be sole contractor on its newly created Major Projects Framework, which has the potential to deliver £2.5 billion of construction work over the next four years.
The framework covers all public sector projects on a single source basis and is open to every public body to use for construction of new and existing buildings as well as retrofit, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance.
It provides public bodies with OJEU compliant access to Willmott Dixon’s construction expertise, along with that of the company’s partners Robertson, who will deliver Procurement Hub projects in Scotland, and Farrans, responsible for Northern Ireland. Fortem will deliver repairs work through another Procurement Hub framework, Built Environment.
Group chief executive Rick Willmott said: “We have a relationship with Places for People stretching back over a decade and teaming up with its Procurement Hub gives us another important channel alongside our existing frameworks to deliver construction projects for our public sector customers.
This is the latest major framework for Willmott Dixon, which is on Scape Group’s National Construction Framework and the Southern Construction Framework. In the last five years, it has delivered over 200 projects under both frameworks, and it was recently declared Southern Construction Framework’s contractor of the year for the second successive time.
A big focus of Willmott Dixon’s work through frameworks is supporting SMEs. On its current work with Scape, 79 per cent of project spend is with companies based within 40 miles of the project, while 90% of overall project spend is with SMEs.
