Scope of Works

To provide maximum flexibility for the framework to deliver capital projects over a four period, the existing frameworks are to be replaced enabling prompt delivery on a flexible basis with adaptability in contract style and format. In addition to the Contractors undertaking traditional construction and refurbishment work the framework will be utilised to deliver:
• Demolition
• Roofing works
• Major redecoration programmes
• Door & window installations
• Other specialist trade construction works

This procurement exercise is to create a framework for Contractors who have the capability and resources to undertake work on a traditional and design & build basis under a range of contract types. Best value service delivery is vital as is a commitment to sustainability.

If you are not already a Constructionline member Central Bedfordshire Council will require you to become a member by the Framework Commencement Date and for the duration of the Framework Agreement to allow for ease of Framework Management.
