The framework will consist of various new build, extension and refurbishment projects on a mixture of public buildings including libraries, Sure Start and fire and rescue stations. The majority of work will focus on schools in the region as part of the Council's ‘Putting the Learner First' programme.
A leading player in property for many years, Faithful+Gould has built up an impressive portfolio featuring work with other local authorities in the North including Durham County Council and North Tyneside Council, Middlesbrough Borough Council and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
Faithful+Gould is also working alongside Sunderland City Council on the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor. This latest contract with Northumberland County Council further endorses the company's expertise in the public sector.
Faithful+Gould won this challenging commission on a mixture of price and quality of the tender, securing the work after bidding against numerous other competitors. The work will draw upon the expertise and experience of Faithful+Gould's staff from the North East offices.
Martin Round, director of Faithful+Gould's Newcastle office, said:
"Winning this work demonstrates that as a company we are retaining our competitive edge, despite these trying times. We are building on existing relationships and continuing to secure sustainable, long term commissions. We will now begin to work closely with Northumberland County Council to ensure that this programme is delivered to meet requirements and revitalise the area of Northumberland."
