ISG has been appointed to the new Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council Construction Framework, which encompasses the delivery of capital projects in Stockton and is also available for use by Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Darlington and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Councils, adding to the company’s successful track record in winning public sector framework contracts.
The three-year Stockton Framework commences in January and covers schemes above £1.5 million in value. The framework will be kick started with the construction of a new library for the Billingham area of Stockton, which is due to start on site early in the New Year.
ISG’s appointment success on the Stockton Framework builds on the company’s national framework achievements, including the Cleveland Fire Authority Framework in the North East, the North West Construction Hub (NWCH) and the South West Construction Hub (SWCH). The company has an impressive track record of securing a growing volume of work once appointed to these public sector frameworks, exemplified by its lead contractor position on the North West Construction Hub.
Alan McCarthy-Wyper, managing director of ISG’s construction business, commented: “Frameworks are being increasingly adopted by the public sector as a method for local authorities to fast-track the procurement process, while ensuring that the chosen contractor has the local presence, skills and expertise to deliver projects consistently on time and within budget. ISG’s impressive track record post appointment demonstrates our value-driven approach to programme design and delivery, and crucially we are able to directly deploy our considerable learning and experience with immediate affect across the Stockton Construction Framework.”
