rg+p secures place on £10.4m framework

Multi-disciplinary design practice, rg+p, has secured a place on the EN:Procure Consultancy Framework, which will see £10.4m worth of investment in social housing and public sector projects across the East Midlands, North West and Yorkshire & Humber over the next four years.

rg+p, which has offices in Leicester, was one of 70 consultants appointed by EN:Procure, which is the specialist procurement arm of social housing consortium Efficiency North Holdings Limited, and will provide both architectural and principal designer services.

Designed predominantly for social housing, the new framework can also be applied to other public buildings or premises owned and/or managed by Public Sector organisations, including schools, universities, infrastructure sites and offices.

Rob Woolston, director at rg+p said: “We understand there were more than 600 applications for this framework so of course we were delighted to be ranked among the top candidates, in fact it’s a testament to the skills of our team that we are able to showcase such a breadth of expertise. The geographical spread of projects to be delivered under this framework aligns succinctly with our core business areas and we very much welcome the opportunity to get started.”

The EN:Procure framework is divided into eight disciplines, and in addition to the architectural and principal designer services rg+p will undertake, other services are building surveying, party wall and stock conditioning; employers agent/quantity surveying; lifts consultancy; mechanical & electrical services; multi-disciplinary consultancy services; and structural & civil engineering.

Commenting on the successful appointments, EN:Procure director of operations, Emma Mottram said: “Following a detailed and challenging test of so many tenderers’ capacity, competency and efficiency we are delighted to have achieved such a diverse offer in the Framework, with a mix of larger national practices as well as smaller local businesses. We are very much looking forward to working with them to find solutions that meet the needs of our members and their communities in the current challenging economic climate.”
