Accessible to any public sector organisation, the SCAPE Consultancy frameworks will offer the broadest range of professional services available in the construction industry under three distinct lots providing specialist support in each area:
SCAPE Consultancy | Built Environment is a dynamic consultancy service offer, which includes design, project management and quantity surveying dedicated to supporting new construction projects and existing public assets.
SCAPE Consultancy | Infrastructure provides dedicated consultancy services to support the design, delivery and maintenance of our essential infrastructure across the United Kingdom.
SCAPE Consultancy | Place Shaping offers a unique and specialist suite of strategic advisory services ranging from funding advice, policy development, estate rationalisation, as well as asset, risk and development management.
The quality of the bids we received were simply outstanding. Our new partners for these frameworks have the capacity to be transformative for our colleagues in the public sector seeking specialist consultancy support for projects in their communities."
Group Chief Executive | SCAPE
The new frameworks are an evolution of the SCAPE built environment consultancy services (BECS) framework, which was operated with a quantum value of £350m and launched in 2016. Led by Perfect Circle, the BECS framework was widely embraced by the public sector, delivering more than 1,000 commissions and engaging with more than 335 SMEs through its local supply chains.
The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on communities this year, but it has also highlighted that the connection between people and place matters more than ever. Maximising our community assets and reinventing our public spaces through creative placemaking will play a key role towards both Covid and climate recovery. This is why we are looking forward to working with the local authorities through the SCAPE SCOTLAND Consultancy | Place Shaping framework to help them successfully deliver projects that will bring real benefit to their communities.”
