Presently Willmott Dixon holds the Scape national major works framework agreement, which covers new build and refurbishment jobs for local authorities across the country.
The builder’s agreement is due to end in April 2014 on a framework that has delivered much of the promised £350m workload.
Local authority-owned Scape System Build estimates the next deal could be worth anywhere between £750m and £1.25bn as more public bodies adopt the agreement.
Scape plans to hold a contractors day on 5 November in Nottingham to outline plans for the next four-year arrangement, which is open to firms turning over more than £560m.
Balfour Beatty subsidiary Mansell, Interserve, Kier, Miller and Vinci are expected to be interested in replacing Willmott Dixon after making the bidding shortlisted last time around.
An industry day will be held on 5th November 2012 in Nottingham, further details of which are contained in the PQQ.
Scape System Build is a local authority controlled company wholly owned by Derby City, Derbyshire County, Gateshead, Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire County and Warwickshire County Councils.
It operates several frameworks agreements including a regional East Midlands set up covering jobs from £2m-£7.5m, secured by Kier, Wates and Willmott Dixon, which is also coming up for renewal next year.
Also Kier won a four-year term in September 2011 as sole provider on the £1bn nationwide Scape minor works framework.

Mark Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Scape, said: “The scope of the brief has been broadened out in response to feedback from our public sector clients.
“As well as looking for value for money, there will be a greater emphasis this time round for contractors to demonstrate their regeneration credentials.
“That’s because many of the schemes going through this framework aren’t simply about bricks and mortar; these are projects that are designed to inject much needed growth into local economies by cutting out waste and bureaucracy.”
