Southern Construction Framework

Access to construction procurement in the Southern Home Counties

Welcome to our Southern Construction Framework page!

The Southern Construction Framework (SCF) allows public bodies across London, the South East and South West to procure projects from £1m plus with a pool of companies that are part of the SCF.

SCF's 2017 framework contractor of the year!

In 2017, we were named SCF's contractor of the year and Guy Dawes became framework manager of year. It follows a number of initiatives to grow the framework in the South of England, including ‘best in class’ KPI and data collection scoring, plus regular SCF Customer Breakfast meetings, apprenticeship engagement and also being the first contractor to be awarded a SCF project (LB Barnet - Waste Transfer).

Framework manager Guy Dawes:

“Our highly motivated team of framework specialists provide detailed knowledge and insight to make our customer's projects a reality. Customers also like that we are nice people to work with, focused on helping them achieve success. These two awards were the SCF’s way of saying 'thank you' for our work putting them on the map. They were made possible by everyone involved with our SCF projects - a team effort!”

Willmott Dixon has now been appointed for over £175 million of new work through the SCF by clients like councils that include Croydon, Plymouth, Surrey, Lambeth, Arun, plus Royal Greenwich UTC and Swindon & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.

About the framework

The £4bn framework is divided into three 'lots' or value bands of project size, with a number of construction companies available for selection on each lot. Willmott Dixon is on every lot - to see the value range and a full line-up, go here.

Open to all public bodies

All public sector organisations including councils, universities, hospitals, cultural institutions and the emergency services can procure construction services through the SCF.

The framework also covers a full spectrum of new build and refurbishment schemes in education, health and community.
