Set to run for four years, the framework offers public sector organisations OJEU-compliant access to a range of planned maintenance services, offering customers the options of either mini-tender or direct award.
The appointment has seen Wates Living Space secure positions on five lots under the framework including:
- Lot 1b: Major Refurbishments over £1m
- Lot 2: Kitchens & Bathrooms
- Lot 3: Windows & Doors
- Lot 4a & 4b: Flat & Pitched Roofing
Of these, Wates Living Space ranked first on price and quality combined for Lot 1b, Lot 2 and Lots 4a & 4b. First rank enables clients to appoint Wates Living Space directly without the need for a further competition from the framework.
Marc Baines, Managing Director of SEC, commented: “We’re delighted for Wates and look forward to building a great working relationship with them on behalf of our Members. The outgoing framework saw £111 million of contract awards – so this is a fantastic opportunity with a new model to see if we can deliver even more savings for the sector and beyond.”
Through SEC’s Internal & External Building Works Framework, customers can save an estimated six months in the procurement of maintenance services.
