Morgan Sindall Group plc, the construction and regeneration group, today announces that its construction and infrastructure division, Morgan Sindall plc, has been appointed on the Southern Construction Framework. The framework, valued at £4 billion, operates as a vehicle for public bodies to procure building projects worth over £1 million.
Covering the South of England, the Southern Construction Framework has been established jointly by Hampshire County Council, Devon County Council, and Haringey Council. The framework will govern the procurement of a full spectrum of new build and refurbishment schemes in education, health and community. Morgan Sindall plc has been appointed on all three framework lots for projects ranging in value from £1 million upwards.
The framework is set to be operational from summer 2015 and succeeds the iESE (Improvement & Efficiency South East) framework, the Construction Framework South West (CFSW), and the London Construction Programme. It will also be complementary to the new suite of local construction frameworks being established by the London Construction Programme.
John Morgan, Chief Executive, Morgan Sindall Group plc said:
“Our appointment on the Southern Construction Framework is a key development for Morgan Sindall plc, as our construction and infrastructure division continues to deliver high-quality and exciting projects. We are pleased to have secured a place on the framework, and look forward to positively impacting local communities and public bodies across the South of England as a procurement partner.”
