Skanska UK’s Building Operating Unit has won a place on Pagabo’s £10 billion, six-year Major Works Framework, it has been announced this week.
Pagabo provides a link between suppliers and public sector clients to facilitate totally flexible procurement solutions. A place on the Major Works Framework means Skanska can now be selected for work from a huge range of public sector clients who are undertaking capital works.
Building has won places on all of the value bands covering the Midlands, South East and South West which means access to a wide range of public sector opportunities.
Charlie Norris, Buildings Operations Director (Regions), said:
“Being awarded a place on the Pagabo Major Works Framework is fantastic news. It demonstrates that existing and potential customers across the public sector value the work that Skanska does.
“Our innovative approach enables us to deliver projects more effectively for customers. This fits well with the Pagabo framework and its mandate for dynamic purchasing.
Jason Stapley, Managing Director, Pagabo, said:
“We’ve made it our mission to simplify the commissioning process with technology and innovation, placing social value at the heart of everything we do while ensuring full flexibility, OJEU compliance and greater choice for everyone wanting to use the framework.”
To secure a place on the Pagabo Major Works Framework, contractors were required to show robust financial performance, demonstrate relevant experience and be aligned with Pagabo’s passion for social value, supporting SMEs, and technology.
Winning contractors were selected through a rigorous OJEU-compliant tender process.
Steve Holbrook, Managing Director, Building, said: “I’m really proud of the Building team for this win. A place on the Pagabo Major Works Framework is a great way to start 2020 and an unbeatable route to public sector markets.
“People value the work Skanska does and I am proud that we now have the chance to deliver projects for even more clients in the public sector.”
The framework’s first four-year iteration has seen the delivery of high-profile projects nationally, for clients including Liverpool John Moores University, St Albans District Council, Richmond upon Thames College, Merseyside Police, Birmingham Symphony Hall, National Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and Doncaster Council.
Skanska is now gearing up for work opportunities arising from the Major Works Framework once it formally launches in 2020.
