Scape starts race for £4bn civils ‘SME-friendly’ framework

Procurement body Scape has opened prequalification to bid for spots on its third generation civil engineering framework.

The new enlarged format puts net zero carbon construction and work for local SMEs at the heart of delivery of an estimated £4bn pipeline over four years.

Following a period of extensive market engagement, involving more than 170 contractors, firms will have until 25 March to answer the PQQ.

Running for a period of four years from 2023, with an option to be extended for a further two years until 2029, the new generation follows the success of the existing frameworks which have commissioned more than 250 projects to date for public sector clients across the UK.

Scape’s existing two frameworks were both secured by Balfour Beatty.

The fully-managed frameworks include a £3.25bn framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and a separate £750m framework for Scotland, managed and operated by SCAPE Scotland.
