Willmott Dixon holds an integral position with Scape, a public-sector partnership that helps to improve the buildings that we use, the roads we travel on and the places we live.

We are on the Major Works England and Northern Ireland framework, as well as Major Works Wales. These provide a quick to market, OJEU compliant contracting mechanism for construction projects valued between £2m and £20m. With services deployed through our network of nine regional offices, using the framework, we have delivered more than 450 projects for public sector clients across a broad spectrum of sectors.
