Winners revealed for £4.5bn IESE framework

Hampshire County Council has selected the eight contractors for the Improvement and Efficiency South East framework for major projects, worth up to £4.5 billion.

Construction News understands that Bam, Leadbitter, Mace, Mansell, Morgan Sindall, Osborne and Willmott Dixon have secured slots on the framework, alongside Miller who announced their place yesterday.

The four year framework is led by Hampshire County Council and can be accessed by local authorities and public bodies across the South east and London.

Over 30 authorities currently use the framework and bodies including emergency services, universities, further education, schools, NHS, health service providers and primary care trusts are also eligible to use it.

It is expected that between £1.2bn and £4.5bn worth of work will be procured through it.

The firms were selected from 17 that prequalified.

The framework’s predecessor was let in 2006 and comprised 10 contractors including Kier, Volker Fitzpatrick, Willmott Dixon, Morgan Ashurst, and Mace, plus Bam, Costain, Mansell and Warings.

Announcing his company’s appointment yesterday, Miller chief executive Chris Webster said he was delighted to have won a place on a framework “which is being held up as a blueprint across the UK as how major contract frameworks can operate”.

A senior source at a major contractor told CN the winning bids had been “extremely competitive”.

The news is expected to be officially announced early next week.
