Builder and developer Seddon has been awarded a place on the renewed £1bn North West Construction Hub framework.
The £200 million turnover company can now bid for projects worth up to £9 million across the North West region through the framework administered by Manchester City Council, after securing places on 10 out of the 12 framework lots.
The medium value lots are for work worth between £2m and £9m in Cumbria, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside for the client base which includes councils and other public bodies.
Seddon already has a place on the low value framework for projects worth up to £500k, which is currently undergoing re-procurement.
Jonathan Seddon, Managing Director of Seddon, said: "We have a fantastic record for delivering high quality schemes for our clients, and we are naturally delighted that we've been selected for this framework.”
"The North West Construction Hub framework will allow us to build on our current reputation across the region, and gives us a platform for growth in 2015.”
The procurement body expects to award anywhere between £250m and £1bn through the framework over the next three years with an option to extend for a further year.
The framework will enable public sector organisations and the construction companies to work in partnership to deliver projects more efficiently, on time and within budget, with an enhanced focus on quality, added value and sustainability outcomes.
Jonathan added: "As a firm that began and is headquartered in the North West we are delighted to have been appointed to this framework, which will deliver broader economic benefits to communities across the region. We look forward to continuing to employing and training on our own sites, as we always have done, while providing momentum to the Northern Powerhouse.”
