Designed for Life: Building for Wales Framework Agreement

‘Designed for Life: Building for Wales’ framework agreement. We will be involved in ensuring continuous improvement throughout the construction and procurement processes on all major capital health projects in Wales. Faithful+Gould will play an integral part in maximising the largest ever capital investment programme in the NHS in Wales, which aims to improve the way hospitals and other healthcare buildings are designed and constructed. We will be responsible for gathering, collating and managing all capital and whole life cost data, and establishing key performance indicators

The approach was to deliver the best value in the construction of all new health facilities in excess of £5 million in Wales. The challenges were: To completely transform construction delivery in the health sector in Wales by adopting a strategic framework approach, to ensure that for projects over £5 million national standards are met, built in a sustainable way and achieve good value for money by helping to drive best practice and monitor performance against KPIs, the need for new facilities to contribute to the Assembly Government’s sustainable development aspirations with challenging targets across a whole range of environmental factors.
