Multi-disciplinary consultants AtkinsRéalis and Turner & Townsend have been named as the lead providers for two upcoming professional services frameworks from Pagabo.
The two frameworks – both of which will go live in April 2024 – provide a framework specifically for Scotland, along with a second covering all remaining areas of the UK.
As with the existing iteration of the Professional Services framework, the Lot 1 providers will supply complete solutions covering the full spectrum of construction and premises consultancy services – with the new offering including management consultancy.
The Lot 1, full service solution allows clients to access single or multiple services required for their projects through the appointment of a single supplier. Equally, it allows for the appointment of a strategic partner with the capability to provide a range of services.
AtkinsRéalis has been appointed as the sole provider for the £780m framework agreement that covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, the new £27m Scotland-specific framework has been developed with the opportunity to appoint multiple Lot 1 suppliers.
Following the full evaluation of bidders both AtkinsRéalis and Turner & Townsend have been appointed to Lot 1 for Scotland.
Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said: “Having multiple Lot 1 suppliers in Scotland has been a decision based on the way the market continues to evolve.
“Both AtkinsRéalis and Turner & Townsend have incredible credentials and the capability to serve the public sector and we look forward to working with them to support development in Scotland through this framework.”
