Description of these options:

The framework has an option to extend for a further period of 2 years to allow the appointed contractors adequate time to recoup their significant initial investment in establishing processes and procedures that will deliver the improvements that the clients are seeking through this framework. These include economic regeneration, carbon and waste reduction, training and employment initiatives, training of their staff to new ways of working, BIM and new models of construction procurement.
