Building on a strong partnership, Seddon continues to secure and deliver a variety of public sector projects via frameworks made available by the North West Construction Hub (NWCH).
So far, contracts secured by Seddon through the NWCH have included the new build St Thomas’ Primary School in Manchester, £4.8m renovation work on Manchester Metropolitan University accommodation and the construction of the National College for Nuclear in Cumbria.
The NWCH was established in 2009 in response to government’s drive to improve public sector efficiencies, with Seddon awarded places on its low (£500k – £2m) and medium (£2m – £9m) value frameworks.
Seddon has been on the hub’s medium value framework since 2009, also securing a place on its low value framework when both were revised in 2014.
Managed by Manchester City Council, the hub sets out to create long-term relationships between clients, contractors and professionals that are formed around shared objectives and values.
David Belshaw, framework manager at Seddon, said: “The tendering of multi-million pound schemes in this way helps to ensure that the North West has high quality public sector environments where innovation and education can thrive. For Seddon, the NWCH provides a platform where we can grow and deliver projects on time and in budget, as well as manage risk more effectively.”
