Scape has overseen procurement of more than  £1bn of public sector work during the first six months of its national construction frameowrk.

The framework is divided into five service areas by geography and value and will be worth up to £7bn across four years.

The lead construction partners are Willmott Dixon, Robertson, Wates and Lendlease who will work with a supply chain of over 70,000 local businesses.

Projects already procured by the public sector during the first six months of the deal include new schools, care homes, council facilities, leisure centres and affordable housing projects across the UK.

Major projects confirmed include Liverpool City Council’s Venmore Dementia Hub in Anfield and the refurbishment of Bolton’s Octagon Theatre, both led by Willmott Dixon, as well as 55 new affordable homes as part of the regeneration of Raploch for Stirling City Council, led by Robertson.

Victoria Brambini, Managing Director of Scape Procure said: “We launched the Scape National Construction framework in May of this year to add both depth and breadth to our national offer, including a greater presence than ever before in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“Such a strong pipeline of projects as we complete mobilisation is a real vote of confidence in our approach and the value our frameworks deliver for the public sector.

“More than ever before, public sector organisations are focused not just on value for money, but on the need to embrace social value delivery across their estate.

“By using the local supply chain, our frameworks ensure the benefits of public investment are maximised within local economies, while the creation of 20,000 new apprenticeships will deliver a long-term investment in people and a permanent legacy for local communities.”

Rick Willmott, Chief Executive at Willmott Dixon, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Scape once again on the National Construction framework.

“It means we can continue creating quality buildings for the public sector in a cost efficient way, as well as making a real and lasting impact on the communities we work in through our social value commitment.”
