News: YORbuild Framework Agreements awarded


A mix of regional and national contractors have been awarded framework agreements for the YORbuild Contractors Framework aimed at the £1.2bn per year construction spend of local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Rotherham companies, Bramall Construction and George Hurst & Sons have been named in various parts of the framework, allowing them to tender more easily for projects.

Over 400 expressions of interest were received for the framework which has been finally whittled down to 45 contractors across four sub-regional frameworks each with six value banded lots.

The sub-regional frameworks will cover minor and major new build and refurbishment works across the region.

The Governments Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnership (RIEP) has funded the procurement process for the framework, with procurement and asset management officers from Rotherham Council leading the delivery of the South Area framework.

During the procurement process key regional initiatives dealing with employment and economic regeneration have been embedded within the framework supported by Construction Skills and Yorkshire Forward.

Nigel Leighton director of Environment and Neighbourhood Services for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and chair of the project team said: "The procurement of the YORbuild Framework is an excellent example of cross regional collaborative working and provides the basis for efficiency and an integrated client approach to the management of a key area regional local authorities construction works spend.

"As the framework moves into implementation we are receiving a high level of interest from regional local authorities, public sector bodies and third sector organisations and we look forward to working collaboratively with our contractor partners in the delivery of their varied requirements."
