Morgan Sindall wins place on £1 billion iESE framework

Morgan Sindall has continued its strong 2011 performance by being reappointed to one of the key construction frameworks in London and the South East.

The Improvement and Efficiency South East (iESE) framework is available for use by public sector organisations to procure major building works across a large swathe of the region. Its geographical reach runs from Central Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire and encompasses London and the South East, from Dorset to Kent.

Morgan Sindall has been appointed on all four frameworks bands (projects ranging in value from £1 million up to £3 million, from £3 million up to £10 million, from £10 million up to £25 million and £25 million and over) and will compete with seven other contractors on the four-year framework.

Projects include the full spectrum of new build and refurbishment schemes in education, health and community buildings such as libraries and sports facilities.
Although the absolute value of the framework is not determined at the outset, it is expected to be in the region of £1 billion. Its predecessor delivered contracts valued in excess of £1.5 billion, with Morgan Sindall securing 45 projects worth over £225 million.

Stephen Scard, managing director of construction at Morgan Sindall, says: “Our team achieved exceptional results against key performance indicators and customer satisfaction throughout the lifetime of the previous framework. So we’re of course delighted to have another opportunity to deliver high quality work across a range of projects.”

Morgan Sindall’s iESE selection follows its recent appointment to the construction framework that will implement a £1.2 billion programme of upgrades and improvements at Gatwick Airport. The construction company is competing with nine other contractors for individual schemes over the four-year lifespan of the framework. These include upgraded terminal facilities, new aircraft piers and modernised baggage systems.

Morgan Sindall has also secured a place on the Smarte East Alliance framework in the East of England, where it is placed in two of the three Lots governing some £500 million of projects.

Stephen Scard adds: “It’s widely accepted that iESE has created a step-change of improved performance, efficiency and value for money in procurement. We believe Morgan Sindall’s strong ethos of collaborative working and good practice makes us an effective partner on schemes large and small. We’re looking forward to the challenge of performing well over the next four years.”
