Billion-plus UK demolition framework announced

By Steve Ducker29 July 2021

National framework provider Pagabo – based in the United Kingdom – has issued a prior information notice (PIN) for its brand-new national framework designed for demolition and land preparation works within the built environment, valued at £1.56 billion (US$2.18 billion).

Jason Stapley Jason Stapley, managing director of Pagabo, said there is a lot of work across the UK needing demolition or site remediation before construction can take place

The framework will run for four years and will allow local authorities and public sector bodies to procure a range of projects such as structure demolition, ground improvement works, bulk earthworks, industrial dismantling and the demolition of non-traditionally constructed high-rise buildings.

The Demolition and Land Preparation Framework will feature 10 lots, with each including six regional and national suppliers, along with three reserve organisations.

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “For any project that needs to procure these services currently, usually the contractor brings in an organisation from its supply chain.

“However, this new offering provides a compliant and direct procurement route for demolition and land preparation services for public sector bodies, affording them direct access to specialist firms.

“Across the country, there is a large amount of development that will require demolition or site remediation to get going. This framework is set to make those early pre-construction phase services easier to access.”

The full list of lots for the Demolition and Site Remediation Framework is:

  • Demolition – five storeys and below
  • Demolition – six storeys and above
  • Bulk earthworks and waste management
  • Contaminated land remediation
  • Mine work remediation
  • Ground improvement
  • Decommissioning and decontamination
  • Asbestos management and removal
  • Industrial dismantling and deplanting
  • Non-traditional high-rise structures.

Rugby Borough Council, based in the English midlands, will act as the awarding body, and a free engagement session for this framework will take place on 10 August at 11am UK time.
