Midlands contractor appointed on £30bn national central government framework

Midlands-based contractor G F Tomlinson has been appointed on to the new £30 billion Crown Commercial Service Construction Works and Associated Services agreement, a major national framework for the delivery of public sector construction.

The new agreement, which runs for seven years, can be accessed by all public sector bodies to procure a variety of construction projects including schools, hospitals, universities, prisons, office buildings and housing. G F Tomlinson has been selected for the North of England region, which includes the East and West Midlands, to deliver projects valued between £3 million and £10 million.

The framework will also provide sustainable opportunities for G F Tomlinson’s local supply chain partners, helping to generate social, economic and environmental benefits within the surrounding communities.

Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2018/19, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth £945million – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.

Operating within the Midlands for over 128 years and with offices in Derby and Birmingham, this is the second national, central government framework secured by the regional contractor, following its current appointment on the Department of Education’s Construction Framework.

Chris Flint, director and general manager of G F Tomlinson Building Ltd, said: “We are delighted to have been selected onto the new Crown Commercial Service framework, another significant framework to add to our growing portfolio, which is testament to the quality of our staff and processes, which were thoroughly tested as part of the robust competition process.”

“National and regional public frameworks are an important part of our business. Securing a place on the North of England lot aligns perfectly with our strategic objectives to continue to be the ‘contractor of choice’ for all public sector clients within our area of operation.”

G F Tomlinson is one of 135 firms appointed nationally to the CCS Framework.
