Exclusive: Lend Lease, ISG, Vinci among MoJ £1bn construction winners

Lend Lease, ISG and Balfour Beatty are among the contractors appointed to a new Ministry of Justice construction framework.

Vinci was successful in all four categories for the Strategic Alliance Agreement Framework for Construction due to run for six years.

ISG and Lend Lease have been successful in three categories, while Interserve and Mansell each scored two.

CN understands that Vinci, ISG and Miller had scored highest in commercial bids, while Lend Lease had topped all four categories on quality.

Wates has missed out on all four categories, while other big names including Skanska, Laing O’Rourke and Galliford Try have also missed out.

The framework is expected to provide around £1 billion in work over the next six years.

Works include new build, refurbishment and maintenance work and can be used across prison estates within England and Wales and court estates within the UK.

Framework winners:

(National) Balfour Beatty; Interserve; ISG; Lend Lease; Kier; Vinci

(North) Henry Boot; ISG; Kier; Miller and Vinci

(East) Lend Lease; Mansell; Shaylor; Shepherd; Vinci

(South) Interserve; ISG; Lend Lease; Mansell; Vinci

Interserve Building managing director Ian Renhard said: “These appointments build on our twenty-year track record as a leading provider of services in the justice sector. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with the Ministry of Justice under this Strategic Alliance Agreement.”

ISG construction managing director Craig Tatton said: “Over the course of the previous MoJ framework, ISG established itself as a leading exponent of lean construction and embraced innovative off-site solutions to maximise efficiencies, with this experience and expertise then shared amongst framework partners.

“This method of working is clearly advantageous to enlightened clients who benefit from this collaborative approach, helping to eliminate waste and inefficiency across the entire construction process. Our appointment to this next generation framework further recognises ISG’s ability to deliver quality construction solutions at the very highest levels, both at a national scale and within a regional context.”

    Perhasp the greatest triumph of all is the fact that amongst all the big boys a SME (Shaylor) actually made it on to the MoJ's frameworks.

    This is surely testament to the fact that big isnt always the only way to be beautiful!
