Efficiency East Midlands Ltd (EEM) are looking to establish a new framework for the sensitive and sustainable refurbishment of listed buildings or buildings of particular historical or architectural interest. The scope of works is likely to, but not limited to, involve:
- Cleaning and repair of all masonry fabric, including specialist conservation work to carved elements;

- External environmental works including but not limited to the refurbishment or replacement of fencing and railings, construction or repair of pathways, landscaping works to the area
All works are must be carried out by skilled operatives with experience working in their relevant trade on listed buildings. EEM will be looking for degree of visibility and transparency in the Framework Contractors sub-contract arrangements, and particularly the selection of specialist sub-contractors who will deliver more sensitive aspects of the Contractors responsibilities. We will also be looking for Contractors who have in-house conservation experience to manage any projects and provide heritage oversight to all aspects of the works. Contractors will also need to provide a proven track record in working with the Heritage Lottery Fund and Heritage England. Works will be across a range of building types including tenanted and void domestic and commercial properties.
