Faithful+Gould has been appointed as lead consultant for Royal Mail under a new framework agreement.
Our Bristol office, based in Aztec West, will now provide project management, quantity surveying, planning supervision and building surveying services to Royal Mail, for the estimated £95 million project, over the next three years.
Faithful+Gould will work with a design team comprising Boyes Rees Architects, Clarke Bond and National Design Consultancy (NDC) over this period to ensure that the continuing programme of capital works being carried out by Royal Mail runs as smoothly as possible.
It is a landmark move for Royal Mail and one which re-affirms Faithful+Gould's position as a national provider of project management services.
Adam Brooks, Bristol-based director at Faithful+Gould, said: "This is the first time Royal Mail has agreed to outsource its project management and it provides an ideal opportunity for Faithful+Gould to assist Royal Mail in developing its estate in order for it to remain the market leader in postal delivery."
Faithful+Gould has held several quantity surveying framework agreements with Royal Mail in the past and has developed a strong working relationship with the client over this time.
The teams servicing the new contracts include individuals who have a good understanding of Royal Mail's policies and procedures. On top of this, the company has specialist software packages relating to project management and health and safety management which will add value to the team in service delivery.
