Director of Estates Trevor Payne said: “We have an ambitious plan for the future of our campus and our objective is to create the best possible environment in which our students can achieve, and our academic colleagues can undertake world-leading research.
“The creation of our own construction framework is a natural next step, as we look to secure the support of the very best in the industry.
“The frameworks will be for 10 years and will be open for use by all HE Institutions, reflecting the vision we have for the University and the sector as a whole.”
Head of Procurement Jonathan Jones said: “With a planned additional infrastructure investment of £500 million over the next few years, we also wanted to develop further procurement opportunities by creating our own University construction framework.
“This framework not only allows the University to optimise its value for money but is also available for other universities to use and benefit from the collective spending power and contractor relationship development.
“By working closely with our key contractors, we can collectively develop additional opportunities with initiatives such as social value, environmental enhancements and sponsorship opportunities.”
