Contractors like BAM, Laing O’Rourke, McLaren, Morgan Sindall and Willmott Dixon will now be among the firms fighting for their places after previously securing the major works lot.
During the past three years, the framework has supported the delivery of over 100 construction projects across five project value bands.
The current framework is designed to be flexible and provides clients with four call-off options and eight call-off contracts.
Like the current framework, this second iteration will not include any direct fee for public sector bodies across the North West.
As well as helping to facilitate collaboration and innovation, the framework will be structured to enable the delivery of meaningful social value benchmarked against the national TOMs standard.
Robbie Blackhurst, framework director, said: “We are delighted to be launching the second iteration of our highly successful North West Contractor Framework.
“This renewal will build upon four years of best practice and allow us to continue to support the public sector with a ‘best in class’ contractor procurement service up to 2026 and beyond.”
