£1.56Bn demolition and land preparation framework launched

Pagabo, the national framework provider, has issued a prior information notice (PIN) for a £1.56Bn framework for demolition and land preparation works.

To run over four years, the framework will allow local authorities and public sector bodies to procure a range of projects such as structure demolition, ground improvement works, bulk earthworks, industrial dismantling and the demolition of non-traditionally constructed high-rise structures.

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

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.

“The way we approach our framework development is through a collaborative full engagement process to ensure that we bring forth something that is a useful and powerful tool for all. 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 to lead into the excellent, high quality schemes the construction industry is known for.”

The full list of lots for the Demolition and Site Remediation Framework are:

  • Demolition – 5 stories and below
  • Demolition – 6 stories and above
  • Bulk earthworks and waste management
  • Contaminated land remediation
  • Mine work remediation
  • Ground improvement
