Pagabo readies market for new civils framework

Published

on

The framework will run for four years and allow public sector bodies to speed-up procurement for rail, nuclear, bridges, roads, maritime, water, and power projects.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “Other areas that will be covered by this new framework ensure that those projects procured through it over the coming years are working towards tackling the climate crisis.

“This includes both tackling the impact of the climate emergency we are facing through flood alleviation projects and working towards net zero carbon targets using alternative fuels and developing greener travel infrastructure.

“This is the first Pagabo framework that Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, will be acting as the contracting authority for, so we’re really looking forward to working with them to bring this new offering to the market.”

The Civils and Infrastructure Framework will feature five lots, covering value bands of up to £30m and above.

Each lot will feature six regional and national firms, along with three reserve contractors.

Stapley added: “Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Pagabo, so this will be truly embedded into this latest framework offering, considering emerging technologies and project controls. Ensuring that our clients have a joint approach with contractors will bring forth these technologies and innovative methods of construction, allowing for quicker, simpler and smoother delivery of projects for clients.”

An engagement session will be taking place on 23 June at 10am. Click here to register to attend.

The money will promote cycling and walking across the country and further increase the construction of bike lanes.

The government said: “This funding will help see the construction of hundreds of miles of new high-quality cycle lanes.”

A new version of the Highway Code is also being published which “ensures road users who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger they may pose to others.”

The new code will also give “guidance on safe passing distances and speeds and ensuring that cyclists have priority at junctions when travelling straight ahead.”

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “Millions of us have found over the past year how cycling and walking are great ways to stay fit, ease congestion on the roads and do your bit for the environment.

“As we build back greener from the pandemic, we’re determined to keep that trend going by making active travel easier and safer for everyone.

“This £338 million package marks the start of what promises to be a great summer of cycling and walking, enabling more people to make those sustainable travel choices that make our air cleaner and cities greener.”
