North West Construction Hub has picked a dozen contractors for its third generation high-value framework deal for projects worth more than £8m.

The procurement body has rung the changes with previously successful firms Galliford Try and Morgan Sindall failing to gain places on any of the three lots this time around.

Laing O’Rourke secured only one place on the lower value project lot despite bidding for all three.

Other high-profile names to miss out are Interserve and Willmott Dixon.

For the first time Balfour Beatty, Bouygues, Graham and Vinci win places, while BAM, Kier and Wates successfully retained their places for another four years.

Other newcomers to the high-value framework, joining the roster on lower value lots include: Conlon, Bowmer & Kirkland, ISG, Seddon and Eric Wright.

Since its establishment in 2009, the NWCH has delivered 374 projects for 101 clients, worth more than £1.8bn. Projects have been completed across Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, and Cheshire through the framework.

Darren Lee, Commercial Director at Conlon, said: “As a North West regional contractor we have completed 24 NWCH projects to date, on both the Low and Medium frameworks over the past 6 years.

“We are looking forward to our first high-value project and the opportunity to promote the continuing success of this collaborative framework.”

Neil Walker, ISG framework Director said: “The significance of the North West Construction Hub in delivering the vital infrastructure that supports our communities cannot be underestimated.

“As a forum for sharing best practice and innovation, fostering strong collaboration and focusing on driving efficiencies throughout the build process, this framework is a stand-out performer and an exemplar of how public/private partnerships generate real value and deliver much-needed facilities in the shortest possible timeframe.”
