The Trust is aiming to award a new Civil Engineering Construction Framework Contract under the NEC4 to two national framework contracts for undertaking complex civil works, and up to 12 regional framework contracts for non-complex civil works, with the recognition that complex and non-complex works may also be awarded out of area as required. The multi-contractor Framework Contract delivery model being proposed, and the aspiration to move to a design and build approach, represent a significant step change for the Trust. The new Civil Engineering Construction Framework Contract will allow the Trust to undertake engineering, construction, maintenance and renewal works across this unique network. The scope of the contract includes early contractor involvement, scheme design and development, delivery of works, and all associated aspects of project and construction delivery.
