Willmott Dixon, Graham Construction and Kier bag places on £175m Manchester uni framework

Willmott Dixon, Graham Construction and Kier have scooped places along with 14 other contractors on the University of Manchester’s £175m construction framework. 

The Construction Works Framework is divided into four lots and the winning contractors will undertake works including demolition, new build, refurbishment, decoration and landscaping.

Helena Partnerships, J Greenwood Builders, MBC Building Contractor NW, SPE Contracts and SPIE have been appointed to Lot 1 worth £100,000-£200,000.

City Build Manchester, F Parkinson, Kaberry Construction, Manchester & Cheshire Construction Co and Warden Construction have won places on Lot 2 worth £200,000-£1m.

Herbert T Forrest, John Turner Construction, Keepmoat Regeneration and Seddon Construction have secured places on Lot 3 worth £1m-£4m.

Graham Construction, Kier and Willmott Dixon have scooped places on Lot 4 worth £4m-£10m.

The university also went outside its framework to pick Willmott Dixon for an £11m physics and astronomy department expansion, as part of its construction partnership framework to deliver projects worth over £10m.

Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke and Sir Robert McAlpine are currently on the Construction Partnerships Framework but were not picked for the project.

The trio will deliver the bulk of the university’s £1bn capital works programme, including the Manchester Engineering Campus Development, which will bring together the university’s four engineering schools in one location.
