Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has announced that it has been appointed as the sole contractor to Scape Group’s second generation civil engineering frameworks, valued at a combined total of up to £2.1 billion revenue.

The two new frameworks, open to all public sector bodies in the UK, will run for a period of four years from October 2018, with schemes due to be awarded from early 2019.

The Scape National Civil Engineering framework, which is valued at £1.6 billion, covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland, while the Scape Civil Engineering - Scotland framework, valued at £500 million, covers Scotland.

The frameworks allow local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and other public sector bodies to commission works through a procurement process that provides the fastest route to market and utilises early contractor engagement to deliver best value design solutions.

Since Balfour Beatty’s appointment to the original National Civil Engineering and Infrastructure framework in 2015, the company has secured over 130 projects worth a combined value of £1.5 billion revenue in sectors including major highways and local roads, flood and coastal defence and public space.

Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty Group Chief Executive, said: “These frameworks enable us to build on our strong partnership with Scape. Our engineering and project management expertise coupled with our detailed regional knowledge supports Scape’s delivery of a wide range of rapidly mobilised infrastructure projects.

“Through our partnership we will continue to deliver added social value for the communities in which we operate by creating apprenticeship and trainee programmes, developing local supply chain spend and employment opportunities, and helping local authorities unlock vital regional growth.”
