Fourteen contractors are preparing to renew their places on Suffolk County Council’s construction framework, which is also open to councils in the East of England.
The four-year framework will be used for public sector building works, and presently has Morgan Sindall, Wates, RG Carter and Barnes Construction holding the high-value work bands.
The framework will be managed by Concertus Design and Property Consultants, a wholly owned company of the council.
This time around, the council plans to introduce four value bands to replace the three presently used.
