Aaron Morby 1 year ago

Twenty-five demolition specialists are set to benefit from an £18m a year contract to offer services to all local authorities and housing associations in Scotland.

Framework has been revamped to focus on recycling
Framework has been revamped to focus on recycling

The Scotland Excel second-generation framework for demolition is designed to help councils deliver planned demolitions and deconstruction with a strong focus on re-using materials.

The improved framework has been redesigned to include deconstruction, which is more likely to reuse material in future construction projects.

Quick response to dangerous structures, including bridges or monuments with emergency demolitions or safeguarding with a three hour or less response time has also been built into the framework after detailed research and discussion with contracting authorities.

Every supplier on the framework must recycle 95% of materials and pay the Real Living Wage to workers.

Councillor John Shaw, Convener of Scotland Excel, said: “The renewal of our Demolition and Deconstruction Works contract comes at an important time for Scotland’s construction sector. Several of our members have indicated that affordable house building will be one of their priorities as we move out of Covid-19 lockdown and this framework will support them to clear vital land to build new vibrant communities.

“Our demolition contract is the only national framework of its kind to offer demolition and deconstruction services to all 32 councils.

“It will give them the tools to quickly and efficiently source work from specialist contractors that have gone through a detailed tender process.

“As well as securing the competitive rates – additional value can be driven through mini competitions for planned works that will ensure councils get competitive prices, quick turnaround, and tailored work packages to meet the specific needs of each scheduled demolition programme.”
