YORcivil Major Works Contractors Framework Agreement
A Framework Agreement to serve all public sector bodies (and their statutory successors) and third sector organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region and the Sheffield Local Enterprise Partnership region as detailed in the procurement documents. The works involved are principally civil engineering works, bridges/structure works, highway surfacing works and flood alleviation works, including contractors design when required. In addition some building works may also be included. The full list of accessing bodies is detailed within VI.3. Principles of collaborative working and partnering will be key to the relationships under the framework.
Yorkshire and the Humber UKE and Sheffield Local Enterprise Partnership region that includes Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire (UKF1). Further details as set out in the framework procurement documents.
Main works include Integrated transportation works, highway works including new build, maintenance, repairs and related surfacing works, sewerage and drainage works including sewage treatment works (e.g. package plants and septic tanks), flood alleviation and land drainage works, hard and soft landscaping including public realm works, sports and recreation facilities, environmental improvement and protection works, bridge works including new build, maintenance and repairs, other structures and structural work (e.g. retaining walls, reinforcement and earthworks), surfacing works including deep surfacing, patching and reconstruction, planing/scarifying works, in-situ recycling of road surface product or other recycling techniques, specialist surfacing including coloured surfacing, anti-skid, surface texture and thin surfacing, some minor general civil engineering and/or building works and/building refurbishment works, river and canal works that may or may not be effected by the tide. Some ancillary works including design and construction of the main works, in whole or in part or input to the design process and some associated new building works and/or building refurbishment may also be included. The coverage for both main and ancillary works may involve all or any stages of delivery including design/ project preparation, site works and also providing advice and project management services associated with these services.
Description of these options:
The framework has an option to extend for a further period of 2 years to allow the appointed contractors adequate time to recoup their significant initial investment in establishing processes and procedures that will deliver the improvements that the clients are seeking through this framework. These include economic regeneration, carbon and waste reduction, training and employment initiatives, training of their staff to new ways of working, BIM and new models of construction procurement.
In addition there will be significant investment required from clients in undertaking the selection and evaluation process, and in particular the training of their staff and consultants to new ways of working. The partnering and collaborative working objectives that will form part of this framework may only be capable of being realised over longer periods of time than 4 years, not least because a number of Local Authorities may only start using this framework when their existing arrangements expire. Further details are set out in the framework documents. Provisional timetable for recourse to these options: in months:48 (from the award of the framework).
Some projects may receive financial contributions from European Union Funds
Subject to the technical and financial capability and capacity of applications it is envisaged that 8 contractors will be appointed to the YORcivil Major Works Contractors Framework Agreement.
