October 2013 - BCSW Win Place On The £1bn Construction Framework South West.
As part of the Builders Consortium South West (BCSW), R J Leighfield & Sons has again won a place on the Construction Framework South West, a regional framework agreement that will cover projects valued at over £1 million, some possibly exceeding £30 million.
The consortium, formed in 2009, consists of local contractors R J Leighfield & Sons, ERH Construction, Pearce Construction and Herbert H Drew & Son. By retaining its place in the framework R J Leighfield & Sons, and the other consortium members, will be able to compete against major construction firms on future framework projects in the south west area.
Denise O’Leary, Communications Director for BCSW, said “As a consortium of smaller firms we understand that to compete with far larger businesses, we have to deliver a quality of service that exceeds expectations. And it’s equally important to offer clients the ability to choose local contractors that are major employers in the communities in which they are based.
"We believe the combination of our four companies delivers an unrivalled level of regional experience and securing a place on the Construction Framework South West for the second time is a boost for the communities around these businesses and the local supply chain we all need to fulfil our contracts."
