J Tomlinson appointed on pioneering new procurement agreement
November 8, 2019
J Tomlinson has been selected by the government as one of 128 companies to share up to £30bn of public sector construction work over the next seven years.
The Nottingham-based business, which operates predominantly across the East Midlands, West Midlands and Yorkshire, has been appointed to Lot 1.1.1 – Buildings Works and Minor Associated Civil Engineering Works and Services (£0k – £3m) – on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Construction Works and Associated Services agreement.
The agreement is available to all public sector organisations to find companies to build or refurbish schools, offices, hospitals, universities, housing, prisons and other schemes.
It is the first government-led construction agreement which can be used by the whole public sector. Organisations will use the agreement to find companies to construct new buildings, refurbish existing properties, undertake repairs and demolition, and decommission redundant assets.
