The new multi-council civil engineering framework has been split into two key lots, one covering smaller jobs under £2m, worth a total of £30-£40m, and larger design and build projects above this threshold, accounting for £160m-plus of forecast spend.
Of the half-dozen contractors earning a place on the framework just Jackson Civil Engineering secured a place on both major and small project lots.
