The Project

The £4.2bn Major Projects Framework will be the second iteration, building upon the success and strengths of the current framework, providing a variety of construction work for a wide range of public sectors including local government, housing, health, transport, education and more.

The agreement will run for an initial four-year period, with the option for it to be extended for a further two years. The framework has been established with three regional lots covering Scotland, England and Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Farrans Construction has been appointed to Lot 3 (Northern Ireland).

Services & Experience
