A wide spectrum

The Scape National Minor Works Framework is available to public sector clients and is designed to deliver construction and refurbishment projects from £50k to £4m, as well as a wider programme of works.

With services deployed through a network of 14 regional offices and extensive local supply chain, our Minor Works team is committed to delivering excellent levels of service to our clients.

Early contractor involvement

We provide a free feasibility audit, covering requirements development, budget costing, project programming and buildability.

The Scape National Minor Works Framework is designed to deliver a ‘no surprises’ journey. The resulting value of this early involvement is critical to shaping the success of the project. Risk is identified early, options are considered and mitigation strategies are jointly agreed.

Value for money

Through the Scape National Minor Works Framework, we strive to provide value for money to our clients and each construction project is 100% market tested.

The framework was competitively tendered for a direct award, to fix core staff, site set-up costs, overheads and profit for each project. With these rates fixed for the framework term, our clients receive protection from rising market forces. These typically account for up to 10% of project costs.

The remaining 90% of project costs are sub-contracted work packages that are tendered on an open-book basis to a managed local supply chain. You can expect to see three quotes for all works packages as standard.

This methodology ensures that competitive tensions are maintained, through effective price benchmarking and cost targeting to achieve value for money.

Social value

We believe that corporate social responsibility starts with running a safe, efficient and stable business, so that we are in a strong position to share wider benefits with the communities we operate. This means working in a responsible way, respecting our people and supply chain, making safety a priority and protecting the environment. It also means being a good neighbour and helping our customers and their communities by supporting local supply chains, community initiatives and causes.

To focus our approach, we established a social impact strategy – Shaping our Communities. This strategy defines and directs our opportunity to have a positive role in the communities where we operate. This directly supports our clients in the delivery of their ambitions and targets, enabling our workforce to impact the communities where they live and work.
