FOR Higher Education


The Build Higher Frameworks have been developed by the University of Birmingham – to improve and enhance higher education facilities across the country.

Available to all higher education institutions across the UK - the framework has routes for procuring construction, architecture and surveying services across three value bands.

The framework operates on a not-for-profit entity with modest costs invested directly back into the framework to improve the service to customers.
