Low Value Framework Soft Market Testing

Tuesday 26th February 2019 Manchester Central Library

On Tuesday 26th February 2019, The North West Construction Hub (NWCH) held a soft market testing event for main contractor construction companies interested in becoming a part of the next incarnation of the Low Value Framework to attend. NWCH are looking at re-procuring the Low Value Framework (currently £500k – £2m) and interested parties were invited to attend a discussion on how to take the next generation of the Low Value Framework forward, making it future-proof and attractive to clients and contractors alike. The invitation was open to representatives of all main contractor construction companies who wanted to share their knowledge and experience and are considering bidding for the future Low Value framework and we were pleased to see many new and familiar faces on the day. The day was received positively and proved to be a refreshing and engaging session. All opinions were taken on board and will be used to help ensure the future of the Low Value Framework is as successful as can be. Thank you to all those who attended. The event also offered a community drop in session giving young people and local residents the opportunity to ‘have a go’ at traditional trade activities such as plastering, bricklaying, joinery and decorating, whilst having a glimpse into digital construction at the BIM stall and using VR headsets. STEM engagement activities such as snap circuits and engineering activities were also delivered to primary and secondary schools and Manchester City Council’s Work and Skills Team supported the event by having stalls to promote an array of careers in construction. Personality quizzes were also conducted to help pupils see what construction roles best suited them. The day proved to be a huge success with some great feedback received from the schools who attended which will be taken into future events to ensure continuous improvement.
