ISG has achieved a 100 percent success rate by securing a place on every one of the Lots it targeted on the new £2 billion YORbuild 2 framework. The contractor has secured a place on two of the most coveted Lots for each of the four YORbuild 2 regions.
As the successor to the original YORbuild framework, which delivered over £700 million of projects over its five year duration, YORbuild 2 is one of the largest public sector procurement vehicles for new build, refurbishment and design & build construction projects in the Yorkshire and Humber regions. Subdivided into four regions encompassing all 22 local authorities within the Yorkshire and Humber area – the North, South, East and West – ISG has proved successful on the ‘over £4-10 million’ and ‘over £10 million’ Lots for each of the regions.
The four year capital works framework has an option to be extended by two years and building on the scope of YORbuild, looks set to include BIM capability and additional forms of contract.
This latest appointment adds to ISG’s growing list of high-profile public sector framework wins, including North West Construction Hub, the EFA Framework, NEPO Framework (North East Procurement Organisation), the Cleveland Fire Authority capital build framework, Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Strategic Alliance Agreement Framework for Construction, the Construction Framework South West and the Welsh schools and public sector framework SEWSCAP2.
Phil Brown, ISG’s UK Construction managing director, commented:
“Following significant interest and competition for places on this major regional framework, it’s a great result for the business to be successful across each of the Lots we contested. ISG is consistently viewed as a trusted and collaborative framework partner, driving efficiencies and learning into the build process, and these credentials undoubtedly proved persuasive for our YORbuild 2 bid.”
