GT3 appointed to Procure Partnerships regional frameworks across UK

We are delighted to have been successfully appointed to the four-year Procure Partnerships (Professional Services) Framework Agreement to deliver Architectural Design services in six regions across the UK.

We will deliver services within the North East, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, London and the South East under the framework, which will run from 2020 to 2024.

Mark Gowdridge, director at GT3 Architects and appointed National Framework Manager for Procure Partnerships Framework, said: “We are very proud to have been appointed to the Procure Partnerships Framework. As a practice, we have always been committed to delivering exceptionally high-quality projects which place people at the heart of our designs.

“We are confident that the values identified throughout the procurement process align perfectly with our own People Architecture approach, and we look forward to working on exciting new opportunities, with both new and existing clients within the public sector.”

Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships framework director added: “This agreement has been two years in the making and it now allows the Procure Partnerships Framework to offer a one stop shop of both professional services and contractor appointments to our public sector clients. The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices, offering both Direct Award and Further Competition project call offs.

“We were extremely impressed with the quality of tenders received and delighted with the calibre of suppliers that we now have locked into our four-year agreement. The breadth of public sector delivery experience across our supplier partners is impressive and we are excited to work with and support them.

“It was important to us that our supplier partners have demonstrable experience of delivering across all public sub-sectors. This attracted 20% of the total evaluation which has meant that we have suppliers who have outstanding experience of delivering Education, Healthcare, Leisure, and Blue Light projects within their specific allotted geographies.”

The Procure Partnerships Framework was established to support public sector bodies across the UK, including: schools and academies, colleges and universities, government departments, NHS bodies, local authorities, health and social care, libraries and museums, housing associations, emergency services, registered charities, ministry of defence and leisure providers.

The framework is divided into 11 geographical regions, combining the framework values of local delivery with the support of national governance. To see a full list of the regions and the winners, please visit the Procure Partnerships website.
