G F Tomlinson to deliver multiple projects on Midlands Framework

Midlands-based G F Tomlinson has been appointed to Scape Group’s Regional Construction Framework, delivering projects between £500k and £2.5m across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire.

The new framework will provide public sector organisations and local authorities access to high quality and cost-effective services from approved contractors, providing value for money and added social value to benefit local communities.

The new framework replaces the East Midlands Property Alliance (empa) framework, which expires in early 2018, and saw G F Tomlinson deliver more than 340 projects over its eight year duration.

Andy Sewards, Managing Director at G F Tomlinson said: Our appointment on the Regional Construction Framework is fantastic news and a credit to the hard work of our team.

“The new framework will play an important role in the delivery of local projects and we are looking forward to continuing our relationships with Scape Group and our public sector clients in the region.

“We have built a reputation for delivering high quality, value for money projects for local communities using our collaborative approach which was demonstrated throughout the empa framework.

“We are proud to be part of the new framework giving us the opportunity to continue to build on our track record and provide increased added value to our clients and communities.”

Victoria Brambini, Managing Director of Scape Procure, said: “We are tremendously proud of the success of the empa framework, which has offered an excellent profile of contractors to the public sector in the region and has consistently created new opportunities for local SMEs within their supply chain.

“The Regional Construction framework builds upon the empa framework aiming to generate greater value for money and project success for the public sector across the region.”

The Scape Regional Construction framework has taken a strengthened approach to demonstrating value for money, and as standard, now measures social value, via a TOMs (Themes, Outcomes, Measures) method, developed in association with Social Value Portal.

Scape will also continue to monitor project performance via additional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for local spend and local employment. The framework will also ensure that a social enterprise is engaged on every project.
