Speller Metcalfe secures place on ProCure23 lot
This month building contractor Speller Metcalfe has been announced as one of the new suppliers on Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Construction Works and Associated Services 2 ProCure23 framework.
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
In an innovative and collaborative partnership between CCS and NHS England and NHS Improvement, the framework is arranged into five lots. Three of the lots are specifically designed for the delivery of healthcare projects in England and form ProCure23, the fourth-generation of NHS construction routes to market.
The contractor, who already has a place on the CCS Construction Works and Associated Services (CWAS) framework, has now secured a place on Lot 1 to deliver projects up to the value of £20 million, across the East and West Midlands region (Sub-Lot 1.3).
James Speller, managing director at Speller Metcalfe, said: “Our track record for healthcare delivery is up there with some of the UK’s household names, and we are delighted that Crown Commercial Services has recognised our commitment to collaboration, quality and best value, naming us as a supplier for Procure23.”
Speller Metcalfe’s experience of public sector healthcare delivery dates back nearly 30 years, with the contractor currently on site with a number of NHS trusts in Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Somerset.
This includes the £21 million redevelopment of Worcestershire Royal Hospital’s urgent and emergency care services and the £11 million Elimination of Dormitories scheme, also at Worcester, and part of a wider UK-wide investment to improve facilities for mental health patients.
The contractor was also named appointed contractor for a new community hospital in Cinderford, and are currently on site delivering the enabling works package.
“We know that the NHS is ready to deliver a range of much needed service provision and upgrades right across the UK,” continued James. “We now look forward to translating NHS aspirations into project delivery for the duration of the Framework.”
Construction works and Associated Services 2/ProCure23 is Speller Metcalfe’s 27th live framework, with other recent appointments including NHS Shared Business Services, Constructing West Midlands (CWM) and SCF Residential.
