Procurement body YORhub has appointed eight firms to a framework for major civil engineering and highways works in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
YORcivil Major Works is a collaborative regional construction framework for works over £10m across the region’s 22 local authorities, other regionally-based public sector bodies and third sector organisations.
Worth up to £2bn, it will be managed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Sheffield City Council.
The eight successful contractors are:
- Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd
- Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd
- Interserve Construction Ltd
- John Graham Construction t/a Graham
- John Sisk & Sons (Holdings)
- Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure Ltd
- NMCN Plc
- Tarmac/Farrens JV
YORhub said the new framework will continue to grow the benefits delivered through its YORcivil2 framework, which includes cost savings for clients, and improvements in both project quality and programme delivery when compared to traditional one-off procurements.
Cllr Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic management at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: ‘It is fantastic that so many small and medium businesses in the Yorkshire and Humber region will benefit from the new framework, and in turn hundreds of local jobs and places for apprentices and students will be created.
‘YORcivil Major Works is a prime example of the public sector and the private sector working together to benefit everyone and boost the local economy.’
