Massive demolition framework announced…

Pagabo has issued a prior information notice (PIN) for a new £1.56 billion national demolition and land preparation framework.

According to a report in The Construction Enquirer, the framework will run for four years and will allow local authorities and public sector bodies to procure a range of projects such as structure demolition, bulk earthworks, and industrial dismantling.

The Demolition and Land Preparation Framework will feature ten lots, with each including six regional and national suppliers, along with three reserve organisations.

The full list of lots is: Demolition – 5 storeys and below; Demolition – 6 storeys and above; Bulk earthworks and waste management; Contaminated land remediation; Mine work remediation; Ground improvement; Decommissioning and decontamination; Asbestos management and removal; Industrial dismantling and deplanting; and non-traditional high-rise structures.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “For any project that needs to procure these services currently, usually the contractor brings in an organisation from its supply chain.

However, this new offering provides a compliant and direct procurement route for demolition and land preparation services for public sector bodies, affording them direct access to specialist firms

We are responding to market needs with this particular framework and look forward to working with Rugby Borough Council, which will act as the awarding body.

“Across the country, there is a large amount of development that will require demolition or site remediation to get going. This framework is set to make those early pre-construction phase services easier to access in a compliant manner for public sector organisations, making sure that every site and project gets the quickest and best start possible.”

A free engagement session for this framework will be taking place on 10 August. Click here to register.
