Following a competitive tender, BAM Construction’s Salford-based team has been reappointed to Procure Partnership’s North West Contractor Framework. 

The framework was established four years ago by Procure Partnerships to support public sector bodies across England and Wales to procure contractor partners. Potential framework users include, but are not limited to, schools and academies, colleges and universities, government departments, emergency services, NHS bodies, local authorities, leisure providers, housing associations, health and social care bodies and registered charities.

With an estimated total value of £1.8 billion, the renewed four-year framework will launch on 1 April 2022 and is divided into region-specific, value banded Lots. BAM has secured a place on all three of the Lots for which it tendered.

  • Lot 3 - £5 million to £15 million
  • Lot 4 - £15 million to £30 million
  • Lot 5 - £30 million +

‘We are delighted to retain our place on this important framework and we look forward to working with Procure Partnerships again over the next four years. 

’What we bring is an industry-leading understanding of sustainability and exceptional digital construction techniques, allied to our highly collaborative partnering ethos.

‘BAM’s strong ties across the North West have seen us create thousands of jobs, train new generations of professionals, generate millions of orders for local businesses and our buildings have helped to educate, heal, and provide work and leisure for many people. The reward for us is creating this wider social value and leaving a legacy for the communities where we deliver these outstanding new buildings.’

Faye Dolan, National Framework Manager, commented: ‘Procure Partnerships are delighted to have concluded the renewal of the North West Contractor Framework after an exceptionally successful first iteration. We look forward to engaging with our contracting partners, old and new, whilst continuing to support brilliant public sector projects – Congratulations to all contractors who have secured a place!’
Natalie Palframan, Key Account Manager (North), commented: ‘It’s really exciting to announce the contractor partners who will play a part in the success of the second iteration of the North West Framework. I’m looking forward to working with these outstanding contractors to support the public sector in delivering long-lasting projects, to high quality and best value over the next 4 years.’

BAM’s current portfolio across the region includes the new acute facilities at Salford Royal Hospital, the trauma centre at Aintree University Hospital, plus what will be the UK’s largest live arena, Co-Op Live in Manchester. It recently handed over new offices for industrial giants Inovyn in Runcorn and Unilever in Port Sunlight.
