Framework replacements for works up to £10m:
YORcivil3 & YORbuild3
YORhub has another busy year ahead with two of our suite of frameworks due to be replaced to complement our new YORcivil and YORbuild Major Works frameworks (for projects over £10m) which were set up last year.

We will be inviting existing and potential framework users to shape these replacement frameworks by completing a questionnaire that is due to be issued soon.

These replacement frameworks will build on the success of previous YORhub frameworks, with proposed headline improvements being the transition from NEC3 to NEC4 Contracts and alignment with the Construction Playbook. 
MMC Delivery Options in
YORbuild Major Works
Our new YORbuild Major Works framework was set up with the delivery of MMC projects in mind. Contractors appointed to the framework were assessed for MMC experience and all are investing in MMC capability.

The YORbuild Major Works team will be pleased to offer advice to any clients considering using MMC on their large projects.
