Willmott Dixon wins £350m Scape framework

Willmott Dixon has bagged the second instalment of the Scape National Contractor Framework worth up to £350 million.

The contractor is the incumbent on the single operator framework, which covers new build and refurbishment jobs for local authorities across the country.

Miller, Vinci, Balfour Beatty subsidiary Mansell, Interserve and Kier were all shortlisted for the framework last December.

The framework is being procured by local authority-owned Scape System Build, which has its own component-based, steel frame construction system that can deliver a primary school with less than 40 weeks on site.

Work can be procured under the framework by Scape itself, but also by many public bodies across the UK including schools, universities, primary care trusts, fire and rescue authorities, NHS trusts and police authorities, as well as health and emergency services.

Scape estimates the amount of work let annually to be between £62.5m and £87.5m, with an average value for each contract of £7m.

Willmott Dixon could find itself working on new builds and refurbishments of council offices, assisted and elderly housing, police and fire stations, leisure facilities, libraries and nurseries, as well as transport depots, recycling facilities and farms.
