Clegg Construction re-appointed to Scape’s Regional Construction Framework (RCF)

Clegg Construction has been re-appointed to a leading construction framework designed to facilitate the delivery of high-quality construction services for public sector projects in the Midlands and East of England.

The company has been selected as one of eight contractors on the fourth generation of Scape’s Regional Construction Framework (RCF), which will see them delivering projects across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Peterborough, and Suffolk in partnership with fellow construction professionals, RG Carter.

Leading procurement authority, Scape, has been helping the public sector create maximum social value for local communities through its national and regional frameworks since 2006.

This marks the continuation of a long-term partnership between Clegg and Scape, with Clegg having been appointed to the third generation of the framework in 2018, following the expiry of Scape’s East Midlands Property Alliance (empa) framework on which Clegg was also a selected contracting partner. The framework has continued to evolve with a view to providing clients with the most flexible, dynamic, and highly efficient route to market, with the value bands having increased from up to £2.5m to up to £7.5m.

Nottingham-based Clegg, who established an office in Cambridge in 2018 after being appointed to the third generation of the Scape framework, has delivered a raft of works across the East of England with highlights including the creation of the highly energy-efficient Cardea Community Pavilion in Peterborough as well as several schemes completed across live air bases in Suffolk.

Pre-Construction Director, Ross Crowcroft, commented: “On behalf of the team at Clegg Construction, we are delighted to have been re-selected as a partner on Scape’s Regional Construction Framework (RCF).

“The newly defined value band of up to £7.5m is very exciting as it presents additional opportunities for Clegg to deliver high-quality, sustainable design, build and refurbishment schemes in partnership with new and existing clients across the East of England – supported by our dedicated regional office.”

The framework agreement, which begins on 26th August 2022 and will run for four years, will operate under a new parallel lotting structure to provide public sector clients with opportunities for early engagement with contracting partners prior to awarding a project.

In addition, the selection process can broaden procurement options for clients by incorporating contractors in adjacent geographical lots where appropriate.

As part of the agreement, a new ‘net-zero ready’ lifecycle feature will be implemented to support public sector sustainability goals in line with the government’s 2050 target.

Aligning with the government’s Procurement Policy Note 06/20 there will be a key focus on facilitating local economic impact and social value, using the industry-recognised TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures) social value framework to measure and report on Clegg’s social value activities which will revolve around local spend, educational and skills development, as well as the provision of meaningful employment opportunities.
