Construction and engineering contractors, including Kier, Laing O’Rourke and Morgan Sindall, have been selected to deliver up to £2bn of public sector infrastructure projects in northwest England.

Appointed by the Procure North West Framework, 20 companies will cover four bands of projects which public sector bodies such as hospitals, colleges and housing associations will be able to tap into until 2022.

Leisure providers, the Ministry of Defence, and other government departments will also be able to procure projects through the framework.

Robbie Blackhurst, Managing Director of Procure North West, said: “When we built the Procure North West Framework the key driver was to establish an OJEU-compliant framework that captured all of the pockets of best practice from other framework procurement routes and pull them under one umbrella.

“This has enabled us to develop a procurement tool for the public sector that is not only effective and efficient but also offers clients a degree of flexibility whilst providing demonstrable value for money.

“Having the contractor partners on board was the last missing piece of the jigsaw and we are delighted that the framework is now live and can start to support the public sector deliver their capital projects.”

The contractors have been shortlisted as follows:

  • Lot 1, covering projects worth £1-5mn: Casey Group, Crossfield, Cruden, Eric Wright, Esh, Henry Boot Construction, Seddon Construction, Whitfield & Brown
  • Lot 2, covering projects worth £5-15mn: Bardsley Construction, Eric Wright, Galliford Try, Interserve, ISG, Graham, Kier Construction, Wates
