Willmott Dixon has won a place on the £3 billion Constructing West Midlands Framework, where it will compete against three other companies on the framework lot which covers projects worth over £500,000.
The four-year framework, which can be extended to eight years, has an estimated value of £3 billion and will be used by Birmingham City Council as well as being available to all public sector bodies within the West Midlands. It’s anticipated the framework will include projects that form part of Birmingham’s ambitious £10bn development masterplan, known as the Big City plan, published last September.
Willmott Dixon has a big presence in the West Midlands. It currently repairs and maintains 60,000 properties owned by Birmingham City Council and employs over 1,000 people in the region. Earlier this month, the company was appointed by Birmingham City University to build phase one of its City Centre Campus.
John Frankiewicz, chief executive officer of Willmott Dixon Capital Works says, “Our major presence in the West Midlands saw us spend nearly £80 million with local companies last year. We are really looking forward to continuing that investment in the local economy by working with Birmingham City Council on the new framework to realise its ambitious future plans for growth and development across the city.”
