Hydrock secures spot on NHS Shared Business Services framework agreement

15th Aug 2023

Hydrock has been awarded a place on an NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) framework agreement.

In a boost to our healthcare sector ambitions, we've been named a supplier across four lots on the NHS SBS Healthcare Planning, Construction Consultancy and Ancillary Services (HPCCAS) framework agreement, which has a potential £2bn procurement value. These include civil and structural engineering (Lot 3), mechanical, electrical and public health (Lot 5), multidisciplinary services (Lot 7) and ancillary services (Lot 11).

Melissa King, senior category manager construction and infrastructure at NHS SBS, said:

We’re excited to launch our Healthcare Planning, Construction Consultancy and Ancillary Services framework agreement, which replaces our successful Construction Consultancy Services 2 framework agreement. It is designed to support the NHS and wider public sector by providing high-quality, innovative and cost-effective solutions through UK-wide coverage, a unique depth of expertise and a broad range of suppliers.

Hydrock's position on NHS SBS reinforces our commitment to supporting healthcare organisations in their pursuit of excellence on the road to net zero.

Ian Alderson, healthcare sector lead at Hydrock, commented:

We’re thrilled to have been awarded a place on this NHS SBS framework agreement as we continue to grow our client base in the healthcare sector. Our position across these lots will allow organisations to access proven engineering design, energy and sustainability solutions which support the sector's decarbonisation goals. Ultimately, with a shared purpose to be a force for good, we'll help the NHS and wider public sector meet their aspirations to become flexible, resilient and sustainable for the long term.

Mark Walker, director and healthcare lead — MEP at Hydrock, added:

The NHS, in particular, continues to grapple with decarbonisation across its estate while providing affordable buildings, which is a huge challenge to overcome. But it can be achieved with the right data, planning and design approach. Away from Hydrock, I've been involved with the development of a new Healthcare Facilities Design Guide for CIBSE, and look forward to sharing best practice from that which our clients can adopt to drive forward change and implement strategies which achieve net zero goals.

Hydrock holds positions on several other frameworks, including NOE CPC, Procure Partnerships, NEPO, Scotland Excel and Welsh Procurement Alliance.
