Hampshire aims construction minor works framework at SMEs


Hampshire County Council specifically wants small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to pitch for slots on its minor works framework

Estimated total value of work to be let through the framework during its four-year  term is between £112m and £240m.

The minor works framework is divided into five lots:

  • Lot 1 (building works, valued between £1 and £250,000);       
  • Lot 2 (building works, valued between £250,000 and £1m);
  • Lot 3 (building recladding, valued between £1m and £2m);
  • Lot 4 (doors and windows, valued between £1 and £500,000);
  • Lot 5 (roofing works, valued between £1 and £250,000).

Interested companies need to submit their pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) by 28th June 2016. This can be found online at The contract notice (2016/S 102-182002) published on the OJEU can be seen online at

The National Federation of Builders said that it applauded Hampshire County Council for making construction work available to local SME contractors. Chief executive Richard Beresford said: “We urge our members with experience in the region to bid for work as this will encourage future, similar opportunities in Hampshire. Opening up construction work opportunities to SMEs is crucial for local authorities because it ensures value for money. For every £1 spent with an SME, 90p remains in the local economy.”
