New £16m a year council demolition contract launched
Worth £16 million a year, the new Scotland Excel framework will help councils deliver planned demolitions as part of regeneration and improvement work and also respond quickly to dangerous buildings with emergency demolitions with a three hour or less response time.
Twenty four suppliers have been awarded onto the framework which has sustainability at its core, with suppliers committed to recycling up to 95 per cent of materials.
The emergency demolitions element lets councils award directly to contractors, has secured a 3 hour (or less) response time and substantial price stability.
The framework will also help councils source planned demolitions via mini competitions that will let councils source competitive pricing and tailored work packages through the framework.
Councillor Mike Holmes, convener of Scotland Excel, said: “Our new demolition contract is the first national framework of its kind to offer demolition services to all 32 councils. It will give them the tools to quickly and efficiently source work from specialist contractors that have gone through a detailed tender process.
“As well as securing the competitive rates for emergency demolition labour - mini competitions for planned works will ensure councils get competitive prices, quick turn around, and tailored work packages to meet the specific needs of each scheduled demolition programme.”
The new framework is also good for business with 70 per cent of suppliers small to medium enterprises.
Councillor Holmes added: “I welcome this new national framework. It will help Scottish councils get the best value for money when responding to emergency situations where dangerous buildings have to be demolished quickly, and also in driving forward improvement programmes for communities where scheduled demolitions are needed. It will bring value for money, has sustainability at its core and is good for business.”
The framework is expected to account for up to £16m worth of demolition work a year as council’s deliver a range of works throughout their communities.
