Miller Construction has become the first contractor to win a place on the Improvement and Efficiency South East and London Construction Framework for major projects, worth up to £4.5 billion.
The four year framework led by Hampshire County Council can be accessed by local authorities across the South East and London.
Over 30 authorities are currently signed up to use the framework which is open to all public service bodies including local government; the emergency services; universities; further education; schools; NHS; health service bodies and Primary Care Trusts.
Miller Construction chief executive Chris Webster said: “We are delighted to have secured a position on the IESE framework which is being held up as a blueprint across the UK as how major contract frameworks can operate.
“Our appointment to IESE reiterates our commitment to our strategy to secure long-term partnerships which are mutually beneficial.
“We have a wealth of experience in the markets which are covered by the framework coupled with expert teams who are ready to deliver high quality projects.”
Miller Construction is one of eight contactors appointed to the framework following the prequalification of 17. The former IESE framework was awarded in 2006 and comprised 10 principal contractors; the new framework consists of eight.
