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 four value band lots.
- Lot 1 £500,000 to £5m – total value: £75m
- Lot 2 £5m to £15m – value: £235m

- Lot 4 Above £30m – value: £860m
Each lot and each region will include spots for up to six regional and national firms, along with three reserve contractors.
Documents must be requested by 20th October with the new arrangement will come into force from the start of 2022.
