Appoint us to a framework
Our purpose is to be a force for good, shaping places, communities and infrastructure that everyone can be proud of.
As a leading British-owned engineering design, energy and sustainability consultancy, we bring sustainable solutions to major infrastructure projects and landmark buildings.
It’s our job to create places that inspire, respect the environment, and deliver value for users, owners and investors.
When we embark on a journey, we work with you shoulder-to-shoulder. This includes recognising that our clients often need to demonstrate best value through competition, whilst minimising the cost and time taken to procure effectively.
These OJEU-compliant frameworks provide a range of flexible and robust procurement routes making it quicker and more cost-effective for the public sector to procure our services.
They’ve all been tendered in the open market, with rates, procurement processes and T&Cs that give you the certainty that your approach is sound.
A selection of our current framework solutions is provided below.
We’ve secured a place on a number of national frameworks, including the following:
- Procure Partnership Framework.
- Homes England.
- Management Consultancy Framework.
- NHS Shared Business Services.
- Welsh Procurement Alliance.
