Contractors sought for £500m building envelope framework

Framework provider YPO is seeking contractors for a £500m building envelope framework.

The public sector body’s framework is divided into 10 lots spanning glazing, cladding, roofing and insulation, scaffolding, demolition and inspections. YPO supplies products and services for a range of customers, including schools, local authorities, public sector, emergency services, nurseries and care homes.

The West Yorkshire-based provider, which is owned by 13 local authorities across Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Yorkshire, will appoint contractors onto a dynamic purchasing system that will run from the end of the year until 2027. Any profit the body makes are returned to the public sector.

The framework is due to start this November, with a deadline for the first round of submissions set for 15 October. Contractors can still apply to the framework after the first round, up until 4 November.
