Highways England has a requirement to deliver construction works to maintain, repair and renew the Strategic Road Network (SRN) within Highways England South West (Area 1 & 2).
Construction Works Framework (CWF) will be made up of a number of different contractors from different specialist areas who will work together to deliver network improvement and maintenance schemes within the South West. The CWF will have fourteen Lots which will represent each of the specialist areas required to successfully deliver the works.
The framework will cover:
* CWF1 Corrosion Protection
* CWF2 Structural Concrete Repairs
* CWF3 Structures; Waterproofing and Expansion Joints
* CWF4A Road Lighting and Electrical Works
* CWF5A General Civil Engineering North

The Lots are detailed further within Annex B, including the likely expenditure for each Lot over the 4-year period. The estimated Annual expenditure for each of the Lots is also specified within the tender documents; however, this is an estimated figure and no commitment is given to any expenditure or to the value of any individual Task Order. Tenderers may only submit tenders for a maximum of 3 Lots across the South West. The maximum number of Suppliers required per Lot is specified in the tender documents.
This process is being conducted by Highways England as the Government owned Company responsible for the Strategic Road Network.
The site is an former Ministry of Defense site developed from 1917 to 1996. As a result the site does have specific challenges relating to contamination, unmapped private services, and potential unexploded ordnance. In addition the site includes a number of tenanted buildings which will need to continue largely undisturbed during the works. Significant preparatory works and investigations have been done to identify potential issues in advance but they remain potential challenges to the works.
