PIN published for £6bn ‘Construct’ Framework

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) has been published for an upcoming £6bn public sector framework from Southern Construction Framework (SCF).

SCF is a leading construction procurement framework delivered by the public sector for the public sector in the South of England.

Kicking off with a supplier information event on 12th April, the latest PIN advises prospective contractors of upcoming market engagement and the subsequent tender process for the £6bn Framework. The current notice is the successor to the initial Southern Construction Framework and is designed to deliver public sector construction projects in education, health, sport & leisure, fire & police, build to rent and more across South-West England, South-East England and London.

The ‘Construct’ framework and its predecessors have delivered work for over 200 government bodies since 2007.

Previous work carried out under the framework includes:

  • Student Accommodation Scheme Arts University Bournemouth
  • The DIO’s £250m Salisbury Basing Programme
  • Multiple developments at Exeter Science Park
  • Police Investigation Centre (PIC), Basingstoke

SCF is the market leader in Two Stage Open Book tendering. This process supports ‘Early Contractor Involvement’, which brings together contractor, stakeholders and suppliers to deliver best quality and value for the client.

Kingsley Clarke, SCF Operations Lead (South West), said: “We are excited to launch our next generation of SCF Construct to build on our past success. The PIN provides information of how to attend our supplier day where we will outline our plans in more detail.”

Adam Sanford, SCF Operations Lead (South East), added: “This fifth-generation framework helps us to provide the best outcomes for our public sector clients. It demonstrates latest best practice and project governance processes, providing an intelligent, data-driven procurement process. This means predictability and resilience for our clients in an increasingly volatile market.”

SCF Construct can be used by all public and third sector organisations within its region, which broadly covers Greater London, the South-East and South-West of England. It can also be used by other client organisations where public money is being expended.
