Eight civil engineering/highways firms have been successful in winning a place on the £2 billion YORcivil Major Works Contractors Framework, namely:
Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd
Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd
Interserve Construction Ltd
John Graham Construction t/a Graham
John Sisk & Sons (Holdings)
Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure Ltd
YORcivil Major Works is a collaborative regional construction framework for the delivery of civil engineering/highways major works projects over £10m for the Yorkshire and Humber region’s 22 local authorities, other regionally based public sector bodies and third sector organisations. It will be managed on their behalf by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Sheffield City Council.
The new framework is one of a suite of YORhub frameworks that also comprise YORbuild2 for construction works, YORconsult2 for construction related consultancy services and YORcivil2 that is available for engineering /highway works up to a works value of 10m and for surfacing works.
YORcivil Major Works encompasses four added-value themes that are included in all YORhub frameworks to ensure that projects completed through the framework deliver social, economic and environmental benefits. In particular the employment and skills theme has delivered tangible opportunities for local people and its headline figures include:
The YOR4Good Fund economic regeneration theme provides grants to community groups to support local regeneration projects across Yorkshire and the Humber, and c130 local groups have benefited from this initiative to date.
YORhub supports local companies through its Supply Chain Engagement value theme as evidenced by the majority of works being delivered through local SMEs. And its Sustainability theme includes a waste and carbon reduction coordinator who works with clients to reduce the amount of waste to landfill and maximise cost savings, and has achieved over 97% of waste being diverted from landfill.
YORhub also supports Building Information Modelling, a government backed initiative, includes sharing best practice with contractors, consultants and clients.
YORcivil Major Works will continue to grow the benefits delivered through YORcivil2, which includes cost savings for clients, and improvements in both project quality and programme delivery when compared to traditional one off procurements.
Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic management at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “It is fantastic that so many small and medium businesses in the Yorkshire and Humber region will benefit from the new framework, and in turn hundreds of local jobs and places for apprentices and students will be created.
“YORcivil Major Works is a prime example of the public sector and the private sector working together to benefit everyone and boost the local economy.”
YORhub is a founder member of the National Association for Construction Frameworks (NACF) and represents the region on this influential national body which shares best practise with other major construction hubs across the UK and Government through the Cabinet Office. YORcivil Major Works is an accredited (kite marked) NACF framework.
