Dodd Group appointed to Constructing West Midlands framework
Dodd Group is delighted to have been appointed as a contractor partner by the Constructing West Midlands Repair and Maintenance framework.
Comprising a suite of OJEU-compliant, publicly owned and managed frameworks operated by Sandwell Council and Acivico Limited, the Constructing West Midlands Repair and Maintenance framework will run for a minimum of four years.
Dodd Group was appointed following a robust tender and due diligence process which was carried out in accordance with Public Contracts Regulations (PCR) 2015. The company will provide a comprehensive range of mechanical and electrical services including repair and maintenance to mechanical and electrical services, pipework installations, project design, planned preventative maintenance (compliance works), energy efficiency installations and alteration of existing installations.
Matthew Lewis, Divisional Managing Director at Dodd Group, comments: "Our appointment gives us the opportunity to build upon our strong working relationships with both Sandwell Council and Birmingham City Council, and to support communities across the West Midlands region.
"We employ more than 100 people at our maintenance division's headquarters in Smethwick and it's particularly pleasing for them to have secured work on their own doorstep. Our appointment also provides continuity for two apprentices who have been working on Sandwell Council properties as well as an opportunity to provide employment and training for further apprentices. Dodd Group continues to be committed to providing value to communities throughout the West Midlands region by investing in its local supply chain and by providing work placements, apprenticeship and employment opportunities."
Providing a flexible, cost effective and OJEU compliant way to procure repair and maintenance works, the Constructing West Midlands Repair and Maintenance framework, can be accessed by public sector bodies, registered charities and third sector organisations operating in the West Midlands region.
