Contractors appointed to £1.6 billion public buildings framework

The Public Buildings Construction and Infrastructure (PB3) framework from LHC, the contracting authority for SWPA, allows local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies to source contractors for works relating to the construction and refurbishment of educational, healthcare, emergency service and community buildings. It can also be used for residential properties within mixed-use developments, student accommodation, conversion of commercial building for residential use, and can include associated infrastructure works. The framework is worth up to £750 million in England.

Dean Fazackerley, head of technical procurement at LHC, said:

“Building on the success of our previous Schools and Community Buildings framework, we’ve broadened the scope of PB3 to allow local authorities to easily source quality contractors that will also help them to achieve low energy and zero carbon buildings and infrastructure projects.

“We’re pleased to have a range of regional and national contractors appointed to the framework, and with over 40% of the appointed companies being classed as an SME.’’

The framework has four workstreams covering: new build only; refurbishment only; new build and refurbishment; and new build, refurbishment and infrastructure for projects at three different value bands.

The full list of appointed companies (in alphabetical order is):

  • Alcema Limited
  • C G Fry and Son Ltd
  • EW Beard Ltd
  • Farrans Construction Limited
  • Galliford Try Construction Limited
  • Halsall Construction Ltd

  • Kier Construction Ltd
  • M & J Group (Construction & Roofing ) Ltd
  • Modulek Ltd
  • Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure Ltd
  • Stepnell Limited

The PB3 framework will run from 1st October 2021 until 30th September 2025.
