Portsmouth Council is looking for building maintenance partners for its four-year £100m Primary contractor Framework.

The council has a 15,000-strong social housing portfolio plus 900 corporate assets and it is anticipated that, over the four-year period, up to £60m of PCC projects may be procured through the Framework based upon the agreed maintenance budget for 2021/22 and predicted budgets for future years.

Typically the majority of projects will range from £100k – £250k however there will be frequent occurrences where values are below £100k and above £1.5m. It is not proposed to set minimum or maximum project values.

The framework agreement will be established via evaluation of tenders submitted for Phase 1 works on a block of flats, which require an upgrade. Upon completion of Phase 1, the Council reserve the right to directly award a further two phases of works for additional blocks of flats to the successful tenderer. The estimated value for the works are:

  • Phase 1 – £350K
  • Phase 2 – £800K
  • Phase 3 – £450K
