News: Bramall Construction awarded framework contract


Rotherham-based Bramall Construction is building on its reputation as a leading social housing contractor after being awarded a contract by a consortium of 14 social housing providers.

The EN Procure Elemental Works Framework has an estimated £975m demand. It has been developed by the Efficiency North consortium in Yorkshire and the Humber to create efficiencies in the procurement of contractors carrying out trades works commonly used in the improvement and maintenance of housing.

The Manvers firm, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, has been appointed to all three sub-regions under the Framework: West, East and South.

Neil Baxter, managing director of Bramall Construction, said: "This is an innovative Framework which will create efficiencies in social housing across Yorkshire and the Humber.

"Being awarded contracts across the three sub-regions is an achievement of which we are incredibly proud, and we look forward to working with and providing best value for the Framework's member organisations."

Contracts have now been awarded to 98 contractors following an unprecedented level of interest throughout the region when the OJEU was posted on the Supplier Contract Management System (SCMS) in November 2010.

The Framework was divided into the three sub-regions to ensure that local SMEs had every opportunity of securing a place. Of the successful contractors, 80% were local small to medium-sized companies, including 15% microsized companies.

The Framework will provide works, materials and services which can be accessed by any public sector body and principally by social landlords.

Provision is contractually embedded into the Framework for local training, apprenticeship and employment programmes, sustainability initiatives, SME and supplier engagement and local economic regeneration.

The framework is designed to deliver expenditure and process efficiency savings of 10% against annual throughput. Any surplus revenue accrued is collected in a "4 Good Fund" which can be accessed by authorities using the Framework to fund projects which support the strategic themes of Efficiency North and realise social and economic benefits in the local community.
