Six companies have been selected for the £4 billion ProCure 21+ health projects framework.
Balfour Beatty, Interserve, Kier and Willmott Dixon all made the highly sought after framework.
They will be joined by Healthcare Partnerships Solutions, led by Miller, and Integrated Health Projects, led by Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine.
ProCure 21 incumbents Bam Construct and Laing O’Rourke did not make the framework. Nor did Medicinq, a consortium led by Midas and joined by Shepherd.
New contenders Bovis Lend Lease and 2VB – a consortium of Volker Fitzpatrick, Thomas Vale and Henry Boot – were also ruled out at shortlist stage.
The shortlist of 11 contractors emerged in December – four months after more than 50 contractors received pre-qualification questionnaires for the six-year health agreement.
The new framework will commence on 1 October 2010.
