Houlton Successfully Selected As A Contractor On The New YORbuild 3 Minor Works Framework
8th August 2022
We are delighted to have been selected as one of the contractors on the new YORbuild3 Minor Works Framework. It continues our association with YORhub since it's inception in 2009
The new Minor Works framework is divided into lots for new build and refurbishment works valued up to £1m, between £1 million and £4 million, and for new housing across 4 regions.
The Yorkshire & Humber public sector construction hub, YORhub, tendered the new YORbuild3 Minor Works frameworks on behalf of Scarborough Borough Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Leeds City Council and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. These new Minor Works frameworks replace the current ones that expire in 2022, and complement the YORbuild3 Medium Works framework due to commence early next year and the YORbuild Major Works framework launched last year. Structuring the frameworks in this way maximises opportunities for SMEs.
The frameworks are aligned with the Construction Playbook published by the UK Government in December 2020 to deliver best practice outcomes. They also align with the Value Toolkit by Construction Innovation Hub which is aimed at improved social value outcomes. YORhub is a member of the Construction Playbook steering group and is currently working with Construction Innovation Hub piloting the Value Toolkit. Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), carbon reduction/net zero and an enhanced sustainability offer are featured in the new frameworks as a result of YORhub’s ongoing commitment to these initiatives.
The introduction of the new frameworks follows the success of the current YORbuild2 frameworks in delivering public sector projects across the Yorkshire and Humber region and neighbouring areas. Since YORbuild was first launched in 2009, YORhub has delivered over 1500 building projects worth £2.5 billion for more than 90 public sector clients.<< Back to News
