Race starts for £100m Scottish schools framework

North Lanarkshire Council is looking for contractors for the second phase of its school building programme worth up to £100m.

Balfour Beatty, Graham Construction and Morgan Sindall saw off competition from Laing O’Rourke and Lend Lease to win places on the current phase one framework, which has been in place since 2008.

The Schools and Centres 21 phase two programme will invest up to £100m in school building in North Lanarkshire over the next four years.

Three contractors are wanted to design and build primary and secondary schools, some of which may also include community facilities.

Projects delivered through the framework are expected to be new build, however some major refurbishment work may also go through the framework.

The OJEU contract notice lists a value of £200m, however North Lanarkshire Council said the approved funding cap is up to £100m at this time.

Capital funding for primary and secondary school building is being raised through efficiency savings elsewhere, which will allow the council to review its budget over the next four years.

Five contractors will be invited to tender for the framework.

The deadline for pre-qualification documents is 3 September 2013. Requests to participate should be made through Public Contracts Scotland.
