Contractors wanted for £750m North-west framework

Manchester City Council has invited contractors to bid for part of a £750m framework agreement.

The council has advertised for contractors to bid for 10 lots covering medium-value work and two for higher-value schemes.

The medium value lots are for work worth £2m to more than £9m in Cumbria, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside; the final two higher-value ones are for projects worth £5m to £9m across the region.

The work is part of North West Construction Hub’s four-year framework, worth between £250m and £750m.

Five lots are for construct-only projects worth £2m to £5m in Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire from 12 April 2014 to 11 April 2018.

Another five lots are for design-and-construct projects for the same values in the same areas over the same period.

And the final two lots are for both construct-only and design-and-construct projects worth £5m to more than £9 across the North-west.

Applicants should submit a single prequalification questionnaire and indicate which lots they wish to apply for.

The framework covers a range of councils, leisure organisations, police and fire authorities, NHS, universities, colleges, transport bodies schools and Manchester Airport.

PQQs should be obtained from and uploaded to the CHEST portal.

The Chest reference for this contract notice is NWCE – 9D2KVJ and PQQs must be submitted by 8 January 2014 at 7pm.
