Contractors shortlisted for £250m Scotland MoD framework

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation has shortlisted eight contractors for its £250m Scotland Capital Work Framework.

Balfour Beatty, Henry Brothers, Interserve, Kier Graham Defence, Lend Lease, Miller, Morgan Sindall and Robertson will compete for up to five places on the four-year framework.

It will be used for the design and build of Ministry of Defence construction projects individually valued up to £12m in Scotland, and will be worth up to £250m overall.

Projects worth up to £50m will be procured through the DIO’s National Capital Works Framework.

DIO frameworks project manager Jon Wooden said: “We received 15 submissions as part of the PQQ process.

“The competition was strong and the bidders faced a rigorous evaluation process to be able to go forward to the tender stage.

“We positively encourage smaller suppliers and subcontractors to approach shortlisted bidders about their products and services by accessing the bidders’ directory online.”

Subcontractors will be able to identify potential supply chain and subcontracting opportunities through a Bidders Directory on the Next Generation Estate Contracts website.

Invitations to tender will be issued to the eight shortlisted bidders, and the DIO said four or five contractors would be appointed.

The contract is due to be awarded by summer 2014 and will run for an initial four-year period, with the potential to extend for up to three years.

It is one of seven regional frameworks for the DIO’s Next Generation Estate Contracts programme.

Shortlisted bidders:

  • Balfour Beatty Group
  • Henry Brothers (Magherafelt)
  • Interserve Construction
  • Kier Graham Defence
  • Lend Lease Construction (EMEA)     
  • Miller Construction (UK)
  • Morgan Sindall
  • Robertson Construction Group
