SCF launches its fourth-generation major construction framework for public sector projects across the South of England.

Building on the success of previous generations, SCF is delighted to announce that its new framework will be launched on 29 April 2019 across the South East, South West, and London regions.

SCF has a proven track record for efficient delivery of major schemes across the south of England and leads the way in both performance management and the production of nationally significant industry data.

SCF is committed to engaging local supply chains and delivers initiatives around Health & Safety, social value and innovation in construction.

SCF attributes its success to its unique integrated team approach, which has an exceptional and demonstrable track record of delivery, cementing its position as trusted advisor to the public sector.

The current generation has delivered over £2.5 billion of public projects, adding more than £110 million of value for 75 public sector clients through its quality managed approach, whilst on average reducing costs by 1% in pre-construction.

We consistently outperform the national averages both in terms of project performance and client satisfaction. You can find out more here.
