How we bring value - see this short film on Willmott Dixon and Scape giving Liverpool City Council the solution they needed.

The Major Works Framework is one of a suite of Scape frameworks that together cover the full construction cycle and may be used on any publicly funded work. This framework can be used for any type of construction building project with a value of £2 million and above. All projects are delivered by Willmott Dixon using the NEC form of contract; it covers new build, refurbishment, extensions and adaptation projects. It can be accessed by any public sector organisation within the UK.

Scape selects the best single supplier by undertaking a carefully controlled tender process that complies with OJEU and Public Contract Regulation requirements in a two stage selection process.

Redcar's Leisure and Community Heart


Willmott Dixon was appointed as framework partner having scored the highest overall for cost and quality. Scape achieves the most economically advantageous tenders by procuring them on cost and quality. This enables Scape to select a single supplier offering the best combination of competitive pricing and the highest quality, backed by a strong local delivery focus.

The framework can be used to deliver multi-sector projects of any nature, including:

  • Building Construction Projects - Where full capital funding is available
  • Asset Transfers - When your assets can be input as a contribution towards contract sum negotiations

Key benefits using the Major Works framework:

  • Time savings - Minimum 200 days are saved compared to traditional procurement. 100% of projects delivered on time and budget since 2006!
  • Cost savings - A current average of 14p for every £1 spent is saved across all projects through procurement, supply chain and early risk reduction savings.
  • Robust validated costs - Your cost plan will be market tested 65% at feasibility, 85% at planning and 100% at contract to ensure robustness. 100% of the final price is market tested and verified as a current market price and value for money.
  • Demonstrable performance - Performance is monitored and captured by Scape on your behalf at all stages of the project. Audited KPIs are reported direct to you via MiProject, a live performance and PM portal.
  • National delivery, local growth - Procured nationally, the framework secures huge economies of scale. Delivered locally, it also drives social and economic benefits for communities throughout the UK.
  • Low contractor fees - Low contractor fees, set at 1.75%, along with low management costs ensure your project benefits from being part of over.
