Multi-specialism consultancies sought for multi-million-pound public sector framework
Housing construction, fire safety and energy efficiency consultancies are encouraged to register interest for a new consultancy framework launching this summer.
Consultancy Services (CS1) from LHC – the central hub of SWPA, offers public sector organisations a wide range of services across all stages of the design, construction, and refurbishment process, all in one framework.
CS1 brings together SWPA’s existing Housing Construction Consultancy (H1 WS1), Energy Efficiency (N8C) and Fire Safety (FS1-C) frameworks under one umbrella to make it easier for contracting authorities to procure specialist consultants.
Dean Fazackerley, head of technical procurement at LHC, said:
“We recognise the importance of making frameworks more accessible to regional suppliers and SMEs to give them more opportunity to work with public sector organisations, and CS1 will look to achieve that.
“Bringing housing construction consultancy, fire safety and energy efficiency under one roof allows us to meet client needs for projects of all sizes, reflecting the current market. It also means we can streamline the procurement process while offering a wider variety of high-quality, pre-approved expertise across a wide range of public sector buildings.”
Engagement webinars with interested parties will be held in due course. These sessions will be used to discuss the initial proposals and gain feedback before finalising the framework and issuing the tender. Consultancies can also register for updates on the framework and the webinars on Proactis.
