128 firms share in £30bn government framework

1 November 2019 | By Neil Gerrard

The government has named a total of 128 construction firms who have won a place on a new cross-public-sector framework worth a total of £30bn over the next seven years.

The Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Construction Works and Associated Services agreement will be used to find companies to build, refurbish, repair and demolish a range of public-sector buildings like schools, hospitals, offices, universities, prisons and houses.

It is the first time a government-led construction agreement will be used by the whole public sector.

Main contractors such as Bam Construction, Bouygues, Costain, Galliford Try, Interserve, Laing O’Rourke, Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine have all secured spots on the new agreement along with a total of 57 SMEs (see list below).

A total of 31 of 38 sub-lots have been awarded today. The CCS expects to award the remaining lots “in due course”.

Housing associations and local authorities will be able to use the agreement to commission house building and the agreement also provides access to specialist construction work for air-side and maritime construction services, as well as modern methods of construction, such as offsite manufacturing.

Simon Hart, minister for implementation in the Cabinet Office, said: “This agreement will help public bodies across the country carry out the work needed to build much-needed new housing as well as improve schools and hospital buildings.

“I know this will be welcomed by people up and down the country and I really look forward to seeing some of the incredible projects this agreement will help to facilitate.”

Sam Ulyatt, commercial director, buildings at CCS said: “This new agreement provides a solid foundation for public sector bodies to achieve the best outcomes and value for their investment across the whole construction lifecycle. 

“The principles of this agreement are collaboration and integration with supply chains, boosting innovation at a critical time and supporting the government’s work towards achieving a zero carbon 2050 target.”


The framework is split into lots including: building works, civil engineering works, general construction works, residential works, high-rise accommodation works, maritime works, airside works, demolition & decommissioning, and construction management.

We declined to bid as we were inundated with emails for help from outside firms purporting to assure that we would get on the list. Lookin at the companies how many are SME's and how many are tier 1's ?
