Arc Partnership Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Framework

Arc Partnership is a joint venture between Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) and Scape, contracted to deliver programme management and maintenance services for Nottinghamshire County Council until 2026.

We are pleased to announce that we have submitted a Contract Notice to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) with the intent to procure a four-year Mechanical and Electrical Engineering framework as part of Arc Partnership Construction Services.

Two years ago we procured our Mechanical and Electrical Engineering frameworks, which supported our property team to deliver programmes of work valued at £5m-£6m (pa). We are now looking to procure contractors for the next generation of these works.

The framework is valued at £17m over a four-year period, with an estimated 200 projects. We will appoint three contractors in each Lot, who will undertake mini-competitions for individual projects.

These lots are:

  • Lot 1: Mechanical Engineering
    Lot value: £12m
    Project value: £2,500 - £250,000 plus
  • Lot 2: Electrical Engineering
    Lot value: £5m
    Project value: £2,500 - £100,000 plus

The contract notice has been published and is available to view via Tenders Electronic Daily.
