Building firms Mansell, Morgan Sindall, Thomas Vale and Willmott Dixon have secured places on the £3 billion West Midlands regional framework.
The four-year framework, which can be extended to eight years, has an estimated value of £3 billion and will be used by Birmingham City Council as well as being available to all public sector bodies within the West Midlands.
It is anticipated that the framework will include projects that form part of Birmingham’s ambitious £10 billion development masterplan, known as the Big City Plan, published last September.
On present spending forecasts the framework is expected to be worth up to £150 million a year.
Thomas Vale managing director Tony Hyde said: “For Thomas Vale, no words can describe the sheer pride that we feel securing our place on the Constructing West Midlands Framework. These kind of long-term frameworks allow businesses to grow and sustain an excellent workforce, whilst sharing best practice with principal contractors in the industry. It allows for training, development, employment and integration with stakeholders.
“Today’s Birmingham is about much more than just ‘building’, it’s about people and community cohesion.”
