Five firms have secured places for £10m-plus construction projects under Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire County Council’s shared services framework.
They are among a total of 30 firms making the cut on a panel that will be used to deliver an estimated £500m-£1bn of work over four years.
The Local Government Shared Services construction framework will be used for repairs and renovation, refurbishment, demolition, modular build, extensions and new build.
LGSS is the shared services venture set up in October 2010 by founding partners Cambridgeshire County Council and Northamptonshire County Council, and ranks as one of the largest ventures of its kind.
Selected contractors will be in line for work from Norwich City Council and Northampton Borough Council, as well as Northamptonshire County Council and Cambridgeshire County Council.
Of the previous winners Morgan Sindall is one of the high profile firms not to be included this time around.
