Following a comptetive tender process, Faithful+Gould was appointed onto all nine lots which include two multi-disciplinary lots, four cost consultant lots and three project manager lots. The lots cover various regions across the South West of England and will run until 2021.
Faithful+Gould was supported throughout the tender process by a range of external supply chain partners who will provide their services through the multi-disciplinary lots. Their locations are spread throughout the South West including Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall, Wiltshire and Dorset.
The Framework provides a fantastic procurement route for public sector organisations based in the South West and the latest version reinforces and supports the use of local resources and locally based SME's.
Chris Haines, Bristol Office Director said "We are delighted to have been appointed onto the Framework for multiple lots across the South West Region. We have teamed up with an excellent supply chain with whom we are looking forward to further developing relationships with over the duration of the Framework. The teams in our Bristol and Exeter offices are excited to already be working on projects that have come through the Framework and are looking forward to maximising opportunties with new and existing clients in the South West.”
Since the start of the Framework four months ago, Faithful+Gould has secured projects with Exeter City Council, University of Exeter, Bristol City Council and the University of the West of England. We are working very closely with the Framework leader, Torbay Council, to develop a programme of local roadshows and workshops to help publicise the Framework. We have also hosted a launch event to promote our offering and the wider multi-disciplinary team at our office in Bristol.
