NEWS

Morgan Sindall Construction has retained its place on each of the three lots of the next generation of the Southern Construction Framework (SCF4), a major framework covering the South of England.

Hampshire County Council and Devon County Council have announced the contractors which have secured a place on the £5.25 billion Southern Construction Framework (SCF4), which will come into operation on 22 April 2019 and run for four years.

SCF is a trusted advisor on public sector related construction procurement, offering end-to-end support for authorities and organisations throughout the South West (Lot 1), the South East (Lot 2) and London (Lot 3).

The framework will be available for all types of construction work, construct only or design and construct and will include pre and post contract construction services for the management and development of projects.

Morgan Sindall Construction has been awarded £700 million of contracts since 2015 through the current SCF framework, comprising 38 projects across 10 counties and 10 London boroughs.

Andy Duff, Managing Director of Construction in the South and SCF Framework Director at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “We’re delighted to have secured a place on the fourth Southern Construction Framework. The diverse range of SCF framework projects require specialist experience and skills and this framework is designed to streamline the procurement process, delivering longstanding relationships, improved efficiency, quality and value for money.

“In addition to the 27 projects undertaken by Morgan Sindall Construction, we have delivered 10 fit out projects via sister-company Overbury and are currently delivering the biggest single SCF contract, the £250 million Army Basing Programme, Salisbury Plain Training Area Service Families Accommodation, via our partnership housing company Lovell.

“SCF provides its customers with the major benefits of early contractor engagement in projects. Morgan Sindall Construction’s commitment to best practice and collaboration, aligned with our focus on social value is what helps to make us an effective partner on SCF schemes of all sizes. We’re looking forward to continuing this legacy we have built and working with our partners to create innovative, high-quality projects to perfect delivery.”

Morgan Sindall Group Chief Executive, John Morgan, said “We are delighted that Morgan Sindall Construction has re-secured its place on the Southern Construction Framework. Delivering within the SCF is always a truly collaborative effort for companies within the Morgan Sindall Group and our supply chain. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to continue to enhance communities across Britain.”
