Morgan Sindall Construction has been reappointed to Pagabo’s Medium Works Framework
Designed for construction projects between £250,000 and £10m, this is the third iteration of the framework, continuing Morgan Sindall’s longstanding collaboration with the framework provider, and replaces the previous iteration launched in 2019 that provided innovative procurement solutions for public and private sector clients in education, health, leisure, blue light and local authorities throughout England, Scotland, and Wales.
Since 2015 Morgan Sindall has collaborated with Pagabo to deliver projects using its Intelligent Solutions approach, which brings together digital and platform design capabilities with modern construction methods and innovative carbon reduction tools to create unique, sustainable, and inspiring places.
This commitment to challenging traditional construction processes and technologies through promoting a data driven approach has enabled the organisations to work collaboratively to address industry-wide challenges including attracting new talent and continually developing skills to support the future of construction
Under the previous iteration Morgan Sindall worked in partnership with their clients, Pagabo and 55 Group service technology providers including Loop and Sypro to deliver projects including:
- Buntingford First School - built in line with Hertfordshire County Council’s sustainability strategy and ambition to be carbon neutral by 2030, this landmark project utilises a Passivhaus design which will improve the school’s air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and lower its energy running costs. When it opens later this year it will be the region’s first carbon neutral school.
- Chesterfield’s new Jewson branch – during the delivery of this new site for the leading building merchants, Morgan Sindall engaged directly with more than 1,000 students from Chesterfield College, Outwood Academy Newbold, The Bolsover School, and Shirebrook Academy. The students were encouraged to consider careers in construction and educated in what skills they will need to gain to pursue successful careers in the sector. In addition, Morgan Sindall has spent around £1 million within the local supply chain, through sourcing building materials from local merchants and employing local sub-contractors for particular construction tasks.
- Milton Keynes University Hospital’s new radiotherapy centre - when complete, this will house two state-of-the-art medical linear accelerator (LINAC) bunkers and will include a main reception, consultation rooms and a CT scanner area. The specialised nature of the project saw the deployment of tailored solutions in line with Morgan Sindall’s Intelligent Solutions approach to construction. This included the need to create 2.6m thick concrete walls to prevent radiation leakage from the onsite radiotherapy equipment.
Pat Boyle, managing director, Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “Over recent years, the projects we have been appointed to through Pagabo’s Medium Works Framework have allowed us to deliver game changing outcomes across the sectors that define our day to day lives – from education to healthcare - for communities throughout the UK. All projects have been driven by a shared commitment to collaboration and to utilising a digital and data led approach, challenging the wider industry to find ways to improve construction while developing tomorrow’s workforce.
“This has been made possible by Pagabo and us sharing a dedication to fostering an ecosystem that sees construction as a mechanism by which we can improve social, economic, and environmental outcomes.
“Key to this will be encouraging future generations into the industry by nurturing an increasingly diverse talent pool and working together to achieve Net Zero carbon by 2030. We’re really excited about what can be achieved by retaining our place on this framework.”
