Lendlease wins place on Crown Commercial Service construction framework
- 10 Apr 2022
Simon Gorski, Lendlease Europe’s Managing Director of Construction, said: “Being part of this framework provides us with an opportunity to become involved with a wider range of projects, and builds on our long history of high-profile work in the public sector. It’s a fantastic vote of confidence in the expertise and commitment to sustainability that we will always bring to projects of this kind.”
He added: “Our bid built on the ethos of The Government’s Construction Playbook, which captures commercial best practices and outlines the government’s expectations of how contracting authorities and suppliers, including the supply chain, should engage with each other. It aligns perfectly with Lendlease’s own values.”
Crown Commercial Service helps the public sector achieve the maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21 the CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
The new commercial agreement recognises the importance of public sector construction as a key driver of economic recovery, providing health bodies in England with a new route to market for construction works and associated services, and helping the UK to build back better. It adopts the principles of the Construction Playbook, rationalising frameworks in an innovative and collaborative approach between Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and NHS England and NHS Improvement.
The new framework is arranged into five lots, with Lendlease being selected for Lot 5, allowing them access to general construction projects worth over £80m and up to a maximum value of £20bn.
