“The next iteration of the framework will see an added three disciplines; Decarbonisation and Retrofit, Demolition and Site Preparation, and Infrastructure with specialist contractors assigned to each. We have expanded our portfolio to cater to the growing needs of the industry whilst ensuring clients have access to the right contractors for their projects, whether that be regional small to medium-sized enterprises, or larger national delivery contractors.

“The new iteration of the framework is set to transform public procurement and we look forward to seeing what our contractor partners achieve over the next four years.”
