Pick Everard has secured re-appointment to deliver a range of construction consultancy services through the third iteration of Pagabo’s Professional Services Framework for the UK.

The £780m framework launches in April, taking straight over from the current version and running for a further four years. Pick Everard has been successfully appointed to all lots and regions bid for, spanning seven service-specific lots.

Alex Hamilton-Jordan, associate director at Pick Everard, said: “The Professional Services framework has been an important tool in providing a truly compliant approach for public sector clients. Through this appointment, we want to engage in a growing ecosystem of partners, including SMEs that really care about and value the communities they serve, with trusted, local insight that can truly transform the outcomes we deliver for our clients.

"We will be utilising the breadth of our multi-disciplinary expertise for this framework, enabling us to deliver a flexible, efficient, and compliant service across a diverse range of sectors. Good frameworks make for good processes for all involved, enhancing procurement and project experiences while driving efficiencies. At UKREiiF in May, we look forward to demonstrating how our proficiency can support our clients in achieving their objectives for the built environment, fostering collective and collaborative success."

The full list of service lots that Pick Everard has been appointed to is:

Lot 2 - Civil & structural engineering
Lot 3 – Quantity surveying, project & programme management, and lead consultant
Lot 5 – Building surveying
Lot 9 – Building services engineering (M&E)
Lot 10 – Architectural design services
Lot 15 – Heritage
Lot 16 – Health and safety consultant including principal designer services

The appointments span geographical regions, including England and Wales.

"As a business, we continue to make huge strides scaling our operation and our framework appointments have been integral to ensuring the best possible outcomes for our clients and end-users. Our values are closely aligned with Pagabo, with a combined track record of working together that has delivered lasting social value in the communities we serve. We share a commitment to championing ethical procurement and maintaining a fair, open and transparent approach to public sector services.

“The level of competition for Pagabo’s frameworks is well-known, so our reappointment speaks to the quality we provide at Pick Everard.

“Procurement efficiency remains the one mark of certainty in a rapidly changing industry, with local authority budgets constantly being squeezed amidst growing mandates to deliver on wider net zero aims. Our aim on this framework is to help ease some of the concerns our clients are facing, with a real focus on quality, a broad range of service delivery and technical excellence.”

Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said: “Professional services is our most popular framework offering so we were expecting a high level of quality bids for the new iteration – and we were not wrong. Now on its third instalment, this framework goes from strength to strength – continually demonstrating quick, simple and effective procurement possibility.

“There is a perfect blend of continuation from the previous iteration alongside changes that address the needs of clients and suppliers. As a result, the opportunities offered to suppliers are very valuable and clients are provided with easy access to the best selection of organisations in the consultancy industry.

“Small and medium-sized enterprises make up 79% of the supplier list. We’re very proud to be pushing SMEs to the forefront of ethical procurement, providing the public sector with the compliant access to the best suppliers across the market. There was a high level of competition for this framework, so our congratulations are extended to the suppliers and we look forward to working closely with them over the framework’s lifespan.”
