Woodhead Group, the development, construction and property management business, has been appointed to two regional lots on the Scape Venture framework, a responsible procurement route designed to ensure that privately funded projects deliver positive community impact and value for money.
The family-owned organisation, based in Nottinghamshire, was awarded a place on the framework to deliver projects up to the value of £7.5 million for North and Central England and will start delivering projects from June 2019.
This is the second time Woodhead Group has secured a place on the Scape Venture framework thanks to its social consciousness, proven track record and collaborative approach to projects.
The contract was awarded to Woodhead following its success on the former iteration of the Scape Venture framework, through which two multi award-winning projects were delivered; the National Space Centre Launch Pad in Leicestershire and the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre in Nottinghamshire.
Glenn Slater, chief visionary officer for Woodhead Group said: “We are excited to continue our partnership with Scape Venture which supports early engagement and collaboration between clients and contractors. Working as a trusted partner allows us to deliver projects which are real value for money whilst having a positive impact on local people and the environment.
“Woodhead Group has delivered thousands of projects through frameworks thanks to our commitment to delivering social value on every project.
“Our two flagship Scape Venture projects include The Space Centre in Leicester, which enhanced facilities whilst engaging and inspiring young people into STEM subjects, and the highly-acclaimed Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre which has been commended by Visit England and has boosted the local economy.
“We’re looking forward to supporting more organisations in North and Central England.”
Mark Robinson, Scape Group chief executive, said “We are tremendously proud of the number of successful, and high-profile projects that Scape Venture has facilitated in recent years, by bringing together the very best of public and private procurement expertise.
The delivery partners we have selected will all be supported by strong local supply chains which will ensure projects are delivered on-time and on-budget, while embedding significant socioeconomic value by keeping local communities engaged throughout.”
