Design services appointment sees us delivering key schemes for Surrey County Council

23 December, 2021

We are delighted to be celebrating our latest strategic appointment, having been selected as a supplier of choice by Surrey County Council.

The council is driving forward with its ambitious programme of transformation. This is being supported by a significant capital programme across Surrey over the coming years, which has seen the local authority seek strategic partners from across the construction supply chain. The council has set out an ambitious £1 billion capital investment programme over the next four years over a number of Directorates.

Pick Everard will be supplying architecture, lead design, interior design, landscape design and principal designer services for all of the council’s upcoming major and education projects. This range of design services will be available to support all manner of education schemes, as well as larger-scale programmes under the major projects appointment.

Pick Everard operations director John Sharp said: “This was a competitive tender process, which saw the council seeking strategic partners from across the construction supply chain to support it in delivering excellent, high-quality new schemes for its constituents. We are thrilled to have been identified as the design services supplier of choice for major works and education projects, which will allow us to bring forward our extensive experience to assist the council in creating the best possible facilities for its people.

“This is a significant appointment for our design services team, which will now be working in close partnership with Surrey County Council over the next four years. This is also the firm’s first time working under a partnership agreement with the council, so we’re really looking forward to getting stuck in and developing this working relationship through our excellent project delivery.”

Pick Everard National Design Director David Shaw, said: “As a firm, we have an excellent reputation for our design services expertise, as well as our wealth of sector expertise. The major projects portion of this appointment will see us providing design services for a wider range of projects, which is where our skills in working in partnership with public sector bodies will come in extremely useful, backed up by our service delivery and specific expertise within our team.

“We very much look forward to fostering this relationship with Surrey County Council over the coming years, and to the first projects getting under way very soon.”
