Building on the success of the Minor Works Framework Agreement, the University of Liverpool has completed the re-tendering of the Framework Agreement, substantially increasing the value bands, for both Consultants and Contractors.

These Frameworks will cover the refurbishment and new construction of facilities across the University estate to support a modern and sustainable campus, through improved amenities. This will enable the University to further enhance its research performance and student experience, as well as continue to drive knowledge exchange and innovation.

During the selection process over 230 expressions of interests were received, to be part of the framework, for both contractors and consultants. The process concluded with the appointment of 42 organisations across all the disciplines and the two contractor value bands.

Faithful+Gould was appointed to deliver CDM Co-ordinator and quantity surveyor services to support the University of Liverpool deliver its capital investment plan, over the next four years.

The University of Liverpool envisages circa 130 projects to be completed over the duration of the framework at an estimated value of £200 Million.

Steve Dickson, Director of Facilities Managements stated, "The new frameworks will seek to build long term collaborative relationships with all our framework partners, improving further the delivery of the projects on time, within budget and to the desired quality standards".
