The deadline for the £30bn Construction Works and Associated Services framework in the UK is approaching. Construction firms of all sizes are invited to bid for public sector work for the next 7 years. Developed by Crown Commercial Service, an innovative new commercial agreement will assist central government and the wider public sector to construct, refurbish, repair, demolish and decommission as required across the UK. A bidders’ conference took place on 8 February, but interested firms still have until 15 March to submit bids. See more details on Construction Enquirer and Scottish Construction Now.
