On the temporary edition, LoveDIY’s Martin Ward comments:

Gelder Group is known for its ‘can do’ attitude, the team at LoveDIY is no different. We have plenty of decorating stock, packing it all safely was the issue, which is now resolved.

If your loved one is driving you up the wall, visit and get him/her to paint it!

Gelder Group Secures Framework with Procure Partnership

Procure Partnership

Gelder Group are one of the thirty-nine firms that have secured places on Procure Partnerships minor works framework to be used by clients across 10 regions in England and Wales and used by local authorities, NHS Trusts, Universities and Blue Light Providers.

The addition of the Procure Partnerships Minor Works Framework to the previously procured Major Works framework means that we can now offer public sector bodies a one-stop shop to compliantly procure contractors to deliver their projects ranging from as little as £50k right up to £100m plus.

The framework is not even 24 hours old and we have already began to procure our first sub £4m projects through it, which reflects the market need for a strong minor works framework, with local contractors across England and Wales and that the winning firms could enjoy a £2.5bn work pipeline over the next four years.
