Four-year deal to focus on schemes across northern England and Wales

Sir Robert McAlpine, RLB and Cundall are among a host of firms appointed to a £600m framework for ethical regeneration schemes.

The four-year deal for Liverpool-based framework operator Rise will be open to public sector bodies across northern England and north Wales.

RLB has raked in the most wins, having been awarded places on seven of the framework’s 17 lots, including project management, cost management and contract administration services.

McAlpine started work on the framework last week

McAlpine has been placed on a lot for structural and civil engineering alongside Cundall and Curtins and has also secured a place on a lot for architectural services alongside RLB.

Engie, Robertson, Morgan Sindall and Seddon are on a lot for refurbishment schemes, and the four have also been placed on a lot for general construction.

Galliford Try has also been placed on the general construction lot and is on a civil engineering lot for civil engineering and highways along with Keltbray.

Rise describes itself as the UK’s only “pro-social” body providing agency services to construction frameworks.

The “safe regeneration” framework, which is the latest iteration of RIse’s construction frameworks, began operation at the end of last week.
