Pagabo is acting on behalf of Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust which plans to establish the framework for developer-led schemes .
It has put an estimate of £47bn on the four-year arrangement which will be open to the whole of the public sector.
Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “We have been in consultation with key developers and local authorities since September 2019 and are really pleased to be bringing the first developer-led framework to the market at this time to help public sector bodies procure work with developers that is critical to building a better future.
“The framework will not only to save time and effort when procuring a developer, but will also save developers a lot of money on bidding for opportunities – which for some larger development schemes can be as high as £1m.
“It has of course been a worrying time for the sector, with construction output dropping by record amounts, but despite the exceptional circumstances we have seen a tremendous amount of enquiries still coming through to us from the public sector – showing the vital role that frameworks have on the road to recovery.
“Government has already indicated that infrastructure around the UK is to be a focus – and a huge part of a ‘return to normal’, and a framework that allows developers the ability to procure works through a compliant, and simple to use framework that will help with creating a more robust sector all round.”
A market engagement meeting will be held on the 30 June via Zoom to set out further details of the procurement plan. To register click here.
