Southern Construction Framework 4
Hampshire County Council and Devon County Council are inviting tenders from all suitably experienced and qualified contractors, to establish a successor framework to the existing Southern Construction Framework (SCF).
The SCF framework currently delivers construction capital projects to around 50 public sector clients (but not limited to) across South West England, South East England and London. Current annual spend is circa 800 000 000 GBP.
The new SCF framework will operate for 4 years commencing April 2019.
This opportunity would suit contractors who embrace best practice in early contractor involvement, collaborative working and Two Stage Open Book contracts on projects varying in size from £2m to potentially in excess of 200m GBP.
The framework will be available for all types of construction work, construct only or design and construct. The framework will include pre and post contract construction services for the management and development of projects.

Programmes are emerging from, major schools and further education programmes, the care sector, civic office developments, leisure, or programmes for police and fire authorities, and major development site infrastructure.
