Contractor wins place in £6bn construction framework

Construction firm Speller Metcalfe has been appointed to a £6bn construction framework, covering new build and refurbishment works for schools and community buildings.

Public sector procurement specialist LHC recently launched the Schools and Community Buildings framework which provides turn-key solutions for any type of building excluding residential.

The framework can be used by local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies.

Speller Metcalfe has more than 20 years of experience delivering public sector projects, most recently completing the £22m Stratford Hospital in Warwickshire.

The firm has successfully secured a place on two lots, which encompasses new build and refurbishment projects up to £4m across the Midlands and South West of England.

Speller Metcalfe’s group managing director, Des O’Neill said: “We are delighted to have secured a place on the LHC framework, with the opportunity of delivering projects within our key regions.

“This is our first time on the framework and a chance for us to share our expertise and develop relationships with new public sector clients, as well as existing partners.

“We look forward to seeing what opportunities this framework will bring.”
