Jobs procured through the framework is set to cover schools, offices, transport and public realm works, as well as commercial redevelopment of sites such as Leicester market and revamping cultural buildings such as museums.
The framework will initially run for two years with the option to be extended for a further two years.
Spending on the framework could reach £240m if it runs for the whole four years.
The top value band could see up to £156m of capital works procured, while lots three, two and one have maximum spends of £44m, £28m and £12m respectively.
In addition to the council’s planned capital programme, a number of private developments are also coming through across the city.
In June Leicester City Football Club submitted plans for an £80m training complex, and earlier this year Morgan Sindall won a contract to deliver a £50m mixed-use development.
Last month Leicestershire County Council announced the four contractors appointed to its £500m four-year highways maintenance framework.
