Clegg Construction has been awarded a place on a new Construction Framework that is expected to deliver £240m of regeneration projects in Leicester.
The four-year Construction Framework for Leicester City Council is set to improve the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the city.
Steve Wesson, framework director for Clegg Construction, said that they were delighted to have been appointed onto the Construction Framework for Leicester.
He said: “We are thrilled to have been selected for the Leicester Framework so soon after being appointed onto the Scape Regional Construction framework for the East of England.
“Along with other recent contract wins we have a strong pipeline of work in place and we are looking forward to being part of plenty of major projects in the future.”
Projects are expected to include schools, cultural facilities such as museum redevelopment, economic development schemes, transport and public realm and city centre redevelopment such as improvements to Leicester Market.
Work being delivered by the Framework will include new build, extension, improvements, renovations, major reinstatement and repairs and building site infrastructure works.
The Framework is divided into four lots according to cost and Clegg Construction, which is based in Nottingham and has offices in Leeds and Cambridge, is on Lot 4 with three other contractors, which will deliver projects costing £1.8m or more.
Selection for the Leicester Framework scheme follows on from Clegg Construction’s appointment earlier this year onto the four-year Scape Regional Construction framework to provide construction services for public sector projects in the East of England.
The firm is working on several multi-million pound projects including a purpose-built Students’ Union building at Aston University in Birmingham, a £19m student accommodation scheme in Sheffield city centre and a reception and environment centre at Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst Campus.
