School buildings: construction framework

Information on the framework used to procure school building construction works.



The construction framework supports the school building programmes, and is also available for schools and local authorities to use for their own projects.

The framework is split into 3 value bands, and each value band into regions:

  • high value band (£12m+) – 2 regions
  • medium value band (£4.5m to £12m) – 8 regions
  • low value band (up to £4.5m) – 12 regions

A list of 32 contractors which have won places on our framework is available.

The framework launched on 27 November 2017 and will operate for a period of up to 4 years.

Documents and tools you can use when procuring school buildings, using the construction framework, are available.
