Willmott Dixon, Thomas Vale, Morgan Sindall and Mansell win places

Willmott Dixon, Thomas Vale, Morgan Sindall and Mansell have won places on the £3bn West Midlands regional framework.

The framework, which covers public sector bodies in the region, offers jobs worth more than £500,000.

Birmingham council leads the framework, which lasts for a period of four years, with the potential to extend it to eight years.

Work carried out could form part of Birmingham’s ambitious £10bn development masterplan, which was published in September.

John Frankiewicz, chief executive officer of Willmott Dixon capital works, said: “Our presence in the West Midlands saw us spend nearly £80m with local companies last year.

“We are really looking forward to continuing that investment by working with Birmingham council on the new framework to realise its ambitious future plans for growth and development across the city.”

Paul Smith, chief executive of Morgan Sindall Group, said: “This is a major framework and we are delighted that two of the group’s divisions have secured positions on it.

“Morgan Sindall and Lovell working together as Community Solutions West Midlands is a further example of the complementary nature of our divisions’ capabilities.”
