This is the second generation of the contract, the first of which saw close to 700 projects and up to £1.5bn in project value over the four years.
Faithful+Gould’s re-appointment to Lot 1 of the Professional Services Framework as the sole provider of multidiscipline services was announced in January and just as the one before, the framework offers public sector organisations a UK-wide, fully compliant route to appoint us and our suppliers on a direct basis without further competition (via direct award).
Retaining our single supplier status will enable us to continue providing the UK public sector with the highest level of construction and professional services capability including Project Management, Cost Consultancy, Building Surveying, Civil, Structural, Fire and Building Services Engineering, as well as Land Surveying, Architectural Design, Sustainability, Environmental Services, Town & Master-planning, Heritage, Health & Safety and Asset management.
Simon Toplass, CEO at Pagabo, had this to say in anticipation for the launch, ‘I am absolutely thrilled that our professional services framework is now live and ready for our clients to benefit from. It really has been months in the making, but after many internal meetings, countless engagement days and multiple mobilisation sessions up and down the country, we’re now ready to go.
‘We’ve already worked closely with Faithful+Gould to deliver some truly excellent projects, enabling over £210m in social return on investment over 470 commissions through the framework to date. This includes recent awards in Healthcare, Education, Local and Central Government sectors to support essential services to help with Covid-19. I have high expectations for this framework and expect it to go above and beyond its highly successful first iteration and continue to play a crucial role in our growing suite of frameworks.’
The framework will run for up to four years and is available to use from April 12th, 2020.
