Warden appointed to NHS framework

Kirkham-based Warden Construction has earned two places on the NHS Shared Business Services framework agreement for public sector construction works.

The framework will run for at least three years, until December 2023, with the option to extend by two further two-year periods up to 2027. Total framework spend over the seven years is forecast to be £10.5bn.

Warden has secured two lots within the North West region, for public sector and healthcare projects up to the value of £2.5m and also between the value of £2.5m and £5m.

Richard Kenworthy, Warden managing director, said: "This appointment continues to bolster our expanding healthcare portfolio which sees the business enjoy long-term partnerships with leading health providers and operators across the North West region.

"I’m aware that the existing NHS SBS consultancy services framework has proved a huge success since it started back in 2018 and our healthcare team is keen to promote the benefits of the contractor works framework to our client base to assist in replicating the same success during the forthcoming years."

Warden has recently completed the Luttle Hulton Health Hub, funded by NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, Salford Primary Care Together and Greater Manchester Pension Fund, and is currently on site with the new £8m day case hospital at Matrix Park at Buckshaw Village, Chorley.
