Pride of Place: Scape adds new element to £1bn frameworks

 

Scape Group has added ‘Place Shaping’ to its upcoming £1bn National Consultancy frameworks.

The public sector procurement body said the move followed feedback from organisations that attended its market awareness days across the country in September, and comes as the contract notices for the frameworks are formally published on TED Europa.

The new lot focusing on ‘Place Shaping’ has a combined value of £150m across the two frameworks – England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and Scotland – and will take the place of the strategic asset management lot of the same value.

This lot has been adjusted following feedback at the market awareness events and from public sector clients. It is now designed to provide strategic advice for local authorities who are looking to change the way they develop and manage 'Place'.

Scape said the Place Shaping lot offers a broad range of services and have been principally designed to achieve better outcomes for the commercialisation of assets through major town and city centre regeneration, the modernisation of estate and asset use, and for the strategic asset interventions required to deliver and exceed the climate action.

Scape Group chief executive Mark Robinson said: ‘As an organisation which continuously seeks to learn and grow, it’s vital that we listen to what prospective clients and partners are experiencing on the ground and to adapt our services to reflect the opportunities and challenges that they face.

'The funding of local services is not simply a matter for technical analysis but is part of a much wider debate about the type of communities that we want to live in.

'As such, there is significant scope for consultancy services which enact comprehensive change to the way public bodies develop and manage Place, through short term transactional interventions and through strategic long-term programme management, ensuring that maximum value for money and high quality delivery is achieved along the way.'

The frameworks are now open to individual organisations and consortium bids and will run for a period of four years from August 2020.

The current Built Environment Consultancy Services (BECS) framework, led by the Perfect Circle consortium, is projected to reach its value of £350m. To date, there have been over 1,000 commissions secured through the framework, with a total combined value of over £220m. The current framework will run until October 2020.
