JR Group Win Place on Scotland Excel Framework
The JR Group are delighted to be named as one of the contractors on the Scotland Excel New Build Residential Construction framework, which supports the construction of social housing across Scotland’s 32 local authority areas.
Scotland Excel Procurement
Scotland Excel recently launched a £1.5 billion framework, which will significantly reduce the time it takes social landlords to engage a contractor to build new affordable homes.
The centre of procurement expertise for local government joined forces with 11 Scottish councils to create the four-year framework to accelerate the delivery of affordable new homes including flats, houses and bungalows, as well as residential homes and student accommodation.
The work will comprise the delivery of new build small projects of 1-15 properties along with larger projects of 16-25, 26-40 and 40 plus properties.
Works can be awarded from 1st September 2019 to 31st July 2021, with the possibility of extension at the direction of Scotland Excel up to and including 31st July 2023. Works commissioned within the framework timescales can be executed beyond these dates.
