FinditinWorcestershire supporter, Speller Metcalfe has been selected as one of Staffordshire County Council’s appointed contractors for a major new Capital Works Programme framework.
The four year framework aims to deliver new and improved facilities – predominantly across the education, commercial, industrial and sports and leisure sectors - on behalf of the Council and supporting services such as fire and police authorities.
Following a rigorous tender process Speller Metcalfe has been appointed to Lots 1 & 3, which will incorporate a variety of new build, refurbishment and extension schemes to both new and existing sites.
Lot 1 ranges from £0 - £2.5 million and will share £15 - £50 million of the Council’s framework budget, delivered by six selected contractors. Lot 3 will be shared among four major contractors, with projects valued over £9 million and a potential spend of between £30-60 million.
“To be announced on not one but two of the framework lots shows the scope and quality of work that Speller Metcalfe can be deliver,” said Des O’Neill, group managing director at Speller Metcalfe.
“We have a wealth of framework experience, notably with the recent West Midlands Contractor Framework, where we ranked as the top KPI-scoring contractor throughout its duration.
“Working with Staffordshire County Council provides an exciting opportunity for us to continue build on this expertise, work collaboratively with our project teams and improve on project cost and timescales to achieve the best outcome for all.”
A unique feature of the new capital works framework is the foresight of the Council to create a framework that can be used by neighbouring councils, offering flexibility and the potential for additional opportunities.
