Interserve Group Limited, the international support services, construction and equipment group, has been selected as a framework contractor by YORhub for its latest £2bn YORcivil Major Works Framework Agreement.
YORhub is a procurement organisation that assists the public sector in delivering quality construction projects for Yorkshire and the Humber. This new framework is one of a suite comprising YORbuild2 for construction works, YORconsult2 for construction related consultancy services and YORcivil2 for engineering highway works.
The YORcivil Framework, launched in 2017, has so far supported 2,200 jobs and provided more than 18,000 weeks of apprenticeship support. Its success has led to local authorities throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region increasing commitments to delivering large-scale infrastructure projects in the area.
Works will include construction and maintenance of new highways and bridges, public spaces, flood alleviation schemes, integrated transport hubs and associated works. This will include the delivery of civil engineering and highways works projects valued at more than £10m for the region’s 22 local authorities and other regionally-based public sector bodies.
Eight contractors have secured places on the framework for this project and it will be managed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Sheffield City Council.
Wayne Howell, Highways Director at Interserve Construction, said: “We have a long track record in the Yorkshire and Humberside region for delivering major infrastructure and transport projects drawing on our wide-ranging experience and will be engaging with the region’s 22 councils delivering their construction projects.
“Recent projects delivered in the region by Interserve Construction include the installation of a new landmark bridge in Hull, the new £12m transport interchange in Rotherham and the Hull York Medical School facilities at the University of York.”
