The Scape National Civil Engineering framework is worth £1.6bn and covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland, while the Scape Civil Engineering – Scotland framework is worth £500m.
The two new frameworks will replace the existing Scape National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure framework, which expires in January 2019.
Since Balfour Beatty’s appointment to the original National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure framework in 2015, the contractor has secured over 130 projects worth £1.5bn in sectors including major highways and local roads, flood and coastal defence and public space.
This framework has achieved 87% of its spend value with suppliers and subcontractors within 40 miles and 98% of framework subcontractors were SMEs.
The frameworks allow local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and other public sector bodies to commission works through a procurement process that provides the fastest route to market and utilises early contractor engagement to deliver best value design solutions.
Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “These frameworks enable us to build on our strong partnership with Scape.
“Our engineering and project management expertise coupled with our detailed regional knowledge supports Scape’s delivery of a wide range of rapidly mobilised infrastructure projects.”
Victoria Brambini, managing director at Scape Procure, said: “We have increased the total value of our civil engineering frameworks to £2.1bn to reflect the strong national pipeline of major infrastructure projects and created a dedicated Scottish framework, to reinforce our commitment to local delivery in Scotland, not least to ensure complete legislative compliance with regional variances.”
