Client: The University of Salford
The University of Salford recently procured minor refurbishment works via Construction Impact Framework’s (CIF) refurbishment lot. The scheme, carried out at University House at the university’s Salford campus involved the creation of a new student hub within a redundant space on the lower ground floor of University House. The works consisted mainly redecoration, re-flooring and replacement of an existing kitchen, as well as a small provision for adapting lighting and relocation of Data and power sockets.
Chorley-based D&G Builders and Joiners Ltd. were the CIF supply partner appointed to carry out the works following a mini-competition between the framework’s refurbishment supply partners. Following a short programme of works, the scheme was completed on time and on budget.
This was one of a number of minor works schemes that a CIF supply partner was appointed to in recent months. Feedback from our public-sector members indicates that procuring minor works can often prove challenging; here at CIF we believe we can help members overcome this challenge as we have a number of SME supply partners who are willing and capable of undertaking small works, all of whom can be appointed in an efficient, compliant manner.
Construction Impact Framework is a value based socially driven framework; please have a look at our social impact case studies to see how the University of Salford and Construction Impact Framework are changing lives through procurement.
