BAM has been awarded places on all three lots of the new Southern Construction Framework, one of the largest regional construction frameworks in the UK. The four-year framework, with an expected value of more than £4bn, will include a pipeline of multiple public sector contracts.

The Southern Construction Framework brings together three existing frameworks; Construction Framework South West (CFSW), the iESE framework (SE) and the London Construction Programme (LCP), creating a new framework for London and the South, to meet the procurement needs of a wide range of public sector organisations.

The BAM structure of local delivery alongside regional and central management supports the aims of the framework in keeping the funding within the immediate project area and supporting SMEs and local investment, while also providing a regional and national management structure that promotes the sharing of best practice and innovation.

"We have been working for many years on the CFSW and iESE frameworks, which have provided us with a large number of regional projects. So we are delighted to be awarded a place on a framework that combines these and more, as it is an excellent way to build on our success, with the potential substantially to expand our work with the public sector in London and the South. It has been a long, demanding process for all involved at BAM but completely worth the effort.”
