NMC has notched up several frameworks so far this year
North Midland Construction's (NMC) newly-formed building and civil engineering division has significantly increased the number of successful framework agreements being secured and extended, with at least six new contracts since January with a potential value of up to £9.5M.
NMC has been selected for the new framework agreements by several different clients across the UK including Anglian Water, Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, Scottish Power Energy Networks and Western Power Distribution. The projects NMC will be undertaking as part of the framework agreements utilise the multidisciplinary skills the new division offers with work including; building works, flood defences, sub-station enhancements and civil works on water industry assets.
Mark Blakeway, director at NMC, said: “Framework agreements are becoming increasingly important for our business as more clients use this as a method of procurement.
“With the merger of our building and civil engineering divisions we are now
able to offer an increased range of skills and services from one source which makes the whole process more cost and time effective for the client. As a result our framework portfolio has expanded rapidly this year, particularly in the water and power industries where we have vast experience and expertise, and where we are seeing clients extend their contracts with us for further work.
“It is a really positive start not just for the division but for the whole company as we are building valuable relationships with clients that we can build on and develop beyond the life of the framework.”
NMC launched the new Building and Civil Engineering Division in response to a changing environment in the construction industry, which has seen a significant shift in client requirements and contract models. Projects have seen increasing collaboration between the two disciplines, which allows a seamless transition to the new division.
