Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “The first Major Works Framework has seen double digit growth year on year, since its inception in 2016. In 2019 alone, we’ve delivered £833m worth of construction projects for the public sector up and down the country.”

The previous framework of four years has included work on national projects for clients including Liverpool John Moores University, St Albans District Council, Birmingham Symphony Hall and the National Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.
