Seddon looks to Yorkshire with framework and contract win

Builder and developer Seddon has been appointed to Bradford Metropolitan District Council's schools framework, which saw a total of £43 million worth of work awarded in the three years to 2014.

The firm, which has offices in the Midlands and North West, has been appointed to four lots on Bradford Metropolitan District Council’s framework, which will see it deliver improvement works and extensions to the Council’s existing primary and secondary schools and early year’s facilities up to the value of £4 million.

The three year Building Works in Live Education Environments framework may also see the release of new build contracts as well as improvements to the city’s further education facilities.

Seddon has a heritage of delivering high-quality education projects and has recently completed five projects for Staffordshire County Council under a similar construction framework.

The news comes as the company has also secured a £500,000 contract from the University of Leeds to refurbish all the bathrooms in the Dobree building of Charles Morris Hall. 

During the 12-week project Seddon will renovate around 80 en-suite rooms to greatly improve the facilities at one of the University’s campus residences.

Mark Dawson, Operations Manager at Seddon, said:  "We are delighted to have been awarded four lots on Bradford Metropolitan District Council’s framework and hope this is the first of many frameworks we are appointed to in Yorkshire.

"We look forward to winning and successfully completing projects in Bradford and Leeds and hope this is the beginning of a long and lasting relationship with the region, where we hope to add to our 450 strong labour force.”
