The City is looking for contractors to carry out more than £800m worth of work
The City of London Corporation has launched a trio of construction frameworks covering more than £800m of work.
Contract notices for its Major Construction Works Frameworks Housing, Intermediate (Minor) Minor Works Framework and Major Works Frameworks General have all been published on the Official Journal.
All three frameworks will run for four years.
The most valuable of the three frameworks is the one covering general major works, which is expected to be worth £700m.
It has been divided into two lots, one covering work worth between £1m and £4.6m and the other covering jobs with a value of £4.6m to £15m.
Up to six contractors will be appointed to each lot, with 10 bidders expected to be invited to tender. Contractors will only be awarded a spot on one lot.
The £60m housing framework is also divided into two lots, which are split in the same way as the general framework.
Contractors can submit bids for both lots but can only be appointed to one.
Once again, up to six contractors will be appointed to each lot, with 10 bidders expected to be invited to tender.
The minor works framework, which is worth £43m, has also been divided into two lots, one covering building fabric works, the other covering mechanical and electrical tasks.
Jobs procured under both lots will be worth between £250,000 and £1m.
Up to four contractors will be appointed to each lot, with bidders eligible to win spots on both lots. Eight firms are set to be invited to tender for each of the lots.
Firms have until 16 July to express their interest in the frameworks.
