Leading property asset manager, Place Partnership, has secured places on two regional framework lots on the prestigious Pagabo procurement framework, creating opportunities for the business to further expand its services.
The second generation of Pagabo’s successful Professional Services Framework covers projects up to a total of £500 million, with 77 suppliers split over 18 service-specific lots in seven geographical regions. The framework, which will run for four years, will go live from April 2020.
Place Partnership has been appointed to two lots on the framework and can now offer services for delivery of asset and estate management services, and town and master planning for projects in the Midlands, South West, and Wales.
By securing the places on the framework, Place Partnership has undergone a rigorous OJEU-compliant tender process and has demonstrated both a robust financial position and relevant experience. All applicants also needed to demonstrate a passion for social value and technology, ensuring that they are forward-thinking and conscious of their responsibility to deliver back to the communities in which they operate.
Place Partnership provides a suite of facilities and property management services to public- and private-sector clients, including local authorities, schools, and the police, fire and healthcare services.
Andrew Pollard, Managing Director, Place Partnership, said: “We are exceptionally pleased to have been successful in our applications to these frameworks. There is a strong synergy between our business and Pagabo, particularly around the emphasis that we both place on understanding and delivering social value.
“We have a clear focus and understanding of the value that can be derived to an organisation – be that in the public or private sector – through ensuring the resilience and maintenance of its physical environment and infrastructure.
“We have delivered significant services and savings to our clients in the Midlands and are of course looking forward to the opportunities that this framework will present in enabling us to work in new geographies.”
Pagabo assists public sector organisations across the UK by providing framework agreements and a bespoke consultancy service, delivered by their MCIPS-qualified team.
Simon Toplass, chief executive of Pagabo, said: “We have a strong, ongoing commitment to supporting SMEs and providing them with relevant opportunities, and we would like to welcome Place Partnership as one of almost 40 SMEs appointed across the framework. As well as demonstrating its excellence across its specialisms, Place Partnership demonstrated both a clear passion for monitoring and measuring social value.
“We were thrilled to receive an outstanding number of responses to the tender for this second iteration of the framework. It was a hugely competitive process with well over 200 individual providers applying for the available lots.”
Alongside facilities management, Place Partnership delivers strategic asset management, energy management, valuation and estates management, schools property services and project management.
