Established in 2011, YORcivil is a series of collaborative construction frameworks for the procurement of civil engineering contractors to carry out new civil engineering and maintenance works for the Yorkshire and Humber region. This includes 22 local authorities, other regionally based public sector bodies and third sector organisations. YORcivil is one of a suite of three regional YORhub frameworks, alongside YORbuild and YORconsult.
YORcivil3 comprises the latest two frameworks procured by East Riding of Yorkshire Council (North and East Region) and Sheffield City Council (South and West Region). The works include civil engineering works, bridges / structures, highway surfacing, flood alleviation and coastal works for the region’s public sector organisations.
Through these frameworks, YORcivil aims to deliver improvements in economic regeneration, carbon and waste reduction, training and employment initiatives, BIM and new models of construction procurement. The frameworks are aligned with the Construction Playbook and industry best practice such as the Construction Innovation Hub Value Toolkit.
WeBid has provided bid writing services to support our client in achieving successful award of all three YORcivil framework tenders since 2008. On YORcivil3, this included completing the PAS91 form and ownership of all technical questions. Topics covered contract tendering, programme, design, supply chain, framework management, brand development, market engagement, Modern Methods of Construction, cost management and whole life costs. Our experienced team brought a thorough understanding of YORhub requirements, strategic business drivers and how to optimise the strict tender format criteria which required clear, concise responses, leading to creation of a high-quality tender submission.
