We are delighted to announce that Redec has been appointed onto the prestigious new KCC Principal Contractors Framework. Securing a place under Lot 1 for projects from £1 to £750,000 with a projected contractual spend of £90m on either a design and build or construct only basis. The ethos of the new Contractors Framework will be to provide the highest degree of professionalism in the way that Kent County Council projects are delivered and to create a dependable list of local contractors to drive the county’s big plans forward from 2016 onwards.
The framework will last for 5 years and will include increased apprenticeships and training, community benefits such as local purchasing, the use of BIM, increased engagement of local SMEs and reduction in construction waste being sent to landfill. KCC being the largest property owning body in the South will engage the select contractors from this new framework for all works to schools, colleges, offices, pupil referral units, care homes, waste disposal sites and transportation within the county with other buying authorities able to join the list from next year.
Redec Director Chris said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for both the County and our Company. It is something that I personally have been working on for over 2 years now, and I cannot wait for it to commence. Working closely alongside 19 other organisations in a spirit of collaboration will ensure the property portfolio of Kent will be in safe hands for years to come.”
