YORbuild2 Framework Awarded – 29/03/16

YORbuild

Henry Boot Construction Limited have recently secured a place on Lot 3 of the YORbuild2 construction framework in the North, South, East and West regions.

YORbuild2 is a construction framework that has been developed to provide an efficient and collaborative approach to the procurement of construction projects. It can be accessed by local authorities, public sector bodies or third sector organisations across the Yorkshire and Humber region, Sheffield LEP area, North East England and Lincolnshire.

The YORbuild2 Framework is one of the largest procurement projects delivered by local authorities and was successfully launched in February 2016 following a fully compliant EU Framework procurement process.  “Construction” is the largest category of spend for local authorities within the Yorkshire and the Humber region and YORbuild2 aims to provide an attractive procurement route for new build, refurbishment and design build construction projects for public sector bodies.

“We are delighted to have been appointed to the YORbuild2 Construction Framework. We had a nervous wait for several weeks after our bids were submitted so it was great to receive the news of our success on Lot 3 in the four YORbuild2 regions. Lot 3 covers projects between £1 and £4 million and we have already expressed our interest on two opportunities within a month of its launch so we are hopeful that Lot 3 will deliver more opportunities for us over the next 4 years.”

Andy Atkinson, Chief Surveyor, Henry Boot Construction

“We are pleased to have launched YORbuild2 and look forward to working collaboratively with all the successful tenderers over the next 4 years. The previous YORbuild framework proved to be highly successful and we anticipate that the new framework will deliver even greater benefits to our clients through strong partnership working with contractors and a commitment to delivering social value.”
