Willmott Dixon won the sole contractor role on the previous two occasions

Public sector procurement body Scape has tendered for its four-year £1bn national major works framework.

Willmott Dixon won the sole contractor role on the framework on the previous two occasions it was tendered, while Skanska won the role the first-time around.

Scape chief executive Mark Robinson told Building last month the framework is looking for a contractor to provide “a lot more support with regeneration projects and funding delivery” after conducting market testing with clients.

Over 125 public sector clients procure work through Scape, with projects including a wide range of buildings, including schools, care homes, leisure centres as well as residential buildings.

Scape is owned by six local authorities – Gateshead council, Debyshire council, Derby city council, Nottinghamshire council, Nottingham city council and Warwickshire council – and reinvests surpluses back into the business.
