The framework will run for four years and allow public sector bodies to speed-up procurement for rail, nuclear, bridges, roads, maritime, water, and power projects.
Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “Other areas that will be covered by this new framework ensure that those projects procured through it over the coming years are working towards tackling the climate crisis.
“This includes both tackling the impact of the climate emergency we are facing through flood alleviation projects and working towards net zero carbon targets using alternative fuels and developing greener travel infrastructure.
“This is the first Pagabo framework that Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, will be acting as the contracting authority for, so we’re really looking forward to working with them to bring this new offering to the market.”
The £1.6bn Civils and Infrastructure Framework will feature five lots, covering value bands starting at £500,000 – £5m up to £30m and above.
Each lot will feature six regional and national firms, along with three reserve contractors.
Stapley added: “Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Pagabo, so this will be truly embedded into this latest framework offering, considering emerging technologies and project controls. Ensuring that our clients have a joint approach with contractors will bring forth these technologies and innovative methods of construction, allowing for quicker, simpler and smoother delivery of projects for clients.”
