Morgan Ashurst joins £500 million Construction Framework South West

The four-year, £500 million regional framework will be available for all major public building work ranging from schools, libraries, civic offices and museums to leisure, health and emergency services. Morgan Ashurst is one of 11 construction companies on the framework which is open to all local authorities in Devon, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Avon, Cornwall and Gloucester.

The basis of the framework is to improve public procurement efficiency through the early introduction of the contractor at project design stage to enable a collaborative approach to project delivery. To make the procurement process more efficient, the new initiative also enables public bodies across the South West to appoint from a set of approved contractors that have been rigorously screened and have provided competitive rates to carry out works.
