SCAPE Utilities Works and Services

We are pleased to announce that we have submitted a Contract Notice to procure a new framework, SCAPE Utilities Works and Services Framework, serving England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which is fully compliant with The Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016.

NEW SCAPE Utilities Works and Services Frameworks

Status: Confirmation of Award

Framework period: 4 years (+2 yrs +2 yrs)

Following a detailed market consultation period, the framework has been designed to empower public sector organisations to shape their utilities projects and programmes, whilst offering leading contractors, collaborative contracts, performance measurement, and an accelerated direct award model that we operate.

Please see the Live Procurement page on SCAPE Scotland for an overview of the Scottish framework.

The new framework will enable clients to achieve quantifiable community benefits by engaging with a local supply chain, using local labour, and creating wider employment, skills and training opportunities.

Framework structure

The framework will operate under a parallel lotting structure offering a choice of two contractors to deliver civil engineering and construction works.

The framework will run for a period of four years, with an option to extend for a further four years (2+2 years).
