Race starts for £1.1bn Pagabo demolition framework

Framework provider Pagabo has fired the starting gun on procurement for its £1.1bn national demolition and land preparation framework.

The four year framework agreement will go live in February 2022 and is open to all public sector bodies including local authorities, education, healthcare blue light organisations, housing associations and central government departments.

Included in the range of projects available is structure demolition, ground improvement works, bulk earthworks, industrial dismantling and the demolition of non-traditionally constructed high-rise structures.

The framework contains a total of five lots by value, overlying nine project types and up to 15 geographical regions. The framework will ultimately operate through a maximum of nine contractors per project type per region per lot.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “Breaking down the lots into smaller geographical regions intends to offer opportunities to SMEs and promote the idea of suitability prevailing.”

He added: “There is plenty of discussion at the moment around demolition and rebuild projects due to the potential environmental impact.

“One thing that this framework will do is ensure specialist firms are best placed to support the start of this process if this is the route that public sector organisations decide to take for their estate.”

The tender documents are available here. Submissions must be completed by 9 December, before the awards are announced during February 2022.
