Twenty nine of the contractors were reappointed, including a range of regional and national contractors.
The firms are spread across the four lots covering value bands starting at £50k and going up to £10m. A geographical breakdown also providees equal opportunities to SMEs alongside large contractors.
The framework is aligned with the Construction Playbook and will and run for four years until 2027.
Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said: “This time, we’ve increased the total number of suppliers by 50 and are expecting to see the results from the old framework improved upon.
“There was a conscious effort to ensure an SME presence in the second generation of our Medium Works Framework and this is proven by 66% falling into that category.
“We know it can be tough for the smaller contractors to compete with the industry’s largest companies, so we aim to make our frameworks a vehicle for all to flourish. It’s important to remember that some of the SMEs today will be industry leaders of tomorrow given the opportunities to deliver for new clients.”
Pagago has procured over 160 projects using the popular medium works framework to date.
