Hampshire County Council (HCC) proposes to establish a construction framework for contractors to deliver projects and programmes of work approximately in the 1 000 000 GBP to 4 000 000 GBP value range. The scope of work is expected to consist mostly of some new build, extensions, refurbishments and alterations to existing schools; however all types of building works to any property, including works to Fire, Police and NHS properties and associated hard or soft landscaping is included. Exclusively civil engineering works such as highways, bridges or coastal works will not be included. The Intermediate Construction Framework (ICF) will follow the principles and practice of rotational direct award appointment of contractors to projects, with early contractor engagement, open-book pricing and collaborative working. The type of work may include the requirement for contractors to provide full design services with a construction project.
