Jason Stapley, Managing Director at Pagabo, said: “We’re really pleased to be welcoming bids for our latest framework, which is designed specifically for Civils and Infrastructure projects within the built environment.
“The framework will cover a range of areas, ensuring that the projects procured through it over the coming years are working towards tackling the climate crisis. The framework has been designed with the Construction Playbook in mind, which will help our clients to meet its principles in the most effective manner.
“This is the first framework that Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, will be acting as the contracting authority for, and we’re very much looking forward to receiving bids, appointing suppliers, bringing this new offering to the market, and most of all getting projects procured through it.”
