SPELLER METCALFE APPOINTED TO £60M STAFFORDSHIRE FRAMEWORK
The four year framework aims to deliver new and improved facilities, mainly in the education sector, on behalf of the county council and also has provision for work in the commercial, industrial and leisure sectors for other partners and authorities connected to the county council.
Following a rigorous tender process Speller Metcalfe has been appointed to Lots 1 & 3, which will incorporate a variety of new build, refurbishment and extension schemes to both new and existing sites.
Lot 1 ranges from £0 – £2.5 million and will share £15 – £50 million of the Council’s framework budget, delivered by six selected contractors. Lot 3 will be shared among four major contractors, with projects valued over £9 million and a potential spend of between £30-60 million.
“To be announced on not one but two of the framework lots shows the scope and quality of work that Speller Metcalfe can deliver,” said Des O’Neill, group managing director at Speller Metcalfe.
“We have a wealth of framework experience, notably with the recent West Midlands Contractor Framework, where we ranked as the top KPI-scoring contractor throughout its duration.
“Working with Staffordshire County Council provides an exciting opportunity for us to continue to build on this expertise, work collaboratively with our project teams and improve on project cost and timescales to achieve the best outcome for all.”
A unique feature of the new capital works framework is the foresight of the Council to create a framework that can be used by neighbouring Authorities and partners, offering flexibility and the potential for additional opportunities.
