Following a rigorous competitive tender process, Workman has been appointed to the Procure Partnerships Framework (Professional Services) Agreement, effective 1 September 2020 – 2024.

The four-year framework is divided into 11 geographical regions in which our Workman Building Consultancy team has been awarded project management, building surveying and principal designer roles across North Wales, South Wales, the North East and South West.

About our successful bid

Workman’s successful bid was led by Richard Fridd, Partner in our Building Consultancy team and Lead Partner of the Workman Cambridge & Milton Keynes offices. Commenting on the award, Richard says:

“I’m really pleased that Workman has secured an appointment to this important framework. This opens up new opportunities for our Workman Building Consultancy teams across the UK. We have strong teams in all three roles where we are appointed and we’re all looking forward to working with Procure Partnerships and their clients.”

A breadth of public sector experience

Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships Framework Director, states:

“This agreement has been two years in the making and it now allows the Procure Partnerships Framework to offer a one stop shop of both professional services and contractor appointments to our public sector clients. The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices, offering both Direct Award and Further Competition project call-offs.”

“We were extremely impressed with the quality of tenders received and delighted with the calibre of suppliers that we now have locked into our four-year agreement. The breadth of public sector delivery experience across our supplier partners is impressive and we are excited to work with and support them.”

“It was important to us that our supplier partners have demonstrable experience of delivering across all public sub sectors. This attracted 20% of the total evaluation which has meant that we have suppliers who have outstanding experience of delivering Education, Heartcare, Leisure, and Blue Light projects within their specific allotted geographies.”
