Graham Construction has been awarded a place on ProCure22 (P22), the government’s £4 billion construction procurement framework for the delivery of NHS and social care capital schemes in England. The framework is due to commence on October 3, 2016, and will run for the next four years.
The Department of Health has appointed Graham as one of six Principal Supply Chain Partners (PSCPs), along with Kier, Interserve, Galliford Try, BAM and IHP (a joint venture between Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine).
P22 is the third iteration of the framework that provides the NHS with the tools required to deliver improved estate performance while reducing construction and maintenance costs.
This new framework is designed to further drive increased efficiency and productivity, streamline the procurement process and result in stronger partnerships between clients, PSCPs and supply chains – all with the goal of supporting enhanced clinical outputs for patients and better environments for staff and visitors.
Healthcare Director at Graham Construction, Keith Hayes, commented: “With the P22 framework focusing on quality, value, cost certainty, collaboration, standardisation and a drive for efficiency savings, we are confident that the knowledge and experience gained from our extensive ongoing healthcare portfolio will help further enhance its outcomes.
“We’re looking forward to working with the Department of Health and our PSCM and PSCP colleagues once the framework comes into place. The combination of the GRAHAM regional office network, carefully assembled specialist supply chain members, BIM focus and extensive experience across the full spectrum of healthcare facilities means we will be able to help NHS clients successfully deliver improvements across their estates and ultimately contribute to optimum outcomes for patients and staff.”
Last month, Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services was awarded the £6 million M&E services for the first phase of the Thames Valley Science Park in Reading.
Working with main contractor Graham Construction and the University of Reading, Briggs & Forrester will assist in the delivery of the three-storey commercial development, known as the Gateway Building.
