Facilities, asset and workplace management provider EMCOR UK has secured three lots on Fusion21’s first £1.1 billion national public sector Workplace and Facilities Framework.
Designed to satisfy the FM needs of an array of public sector bodies within the blue-light, central government, education, health, housing and local authority sectors, the framework is likely to create potential opportunities worth up to £750 million.
EMCOR UK is one of more than 60 prequalified SMEs and multinational organisations to have won places on the framework.
It is signed up to three lots:
- Lot 1: FM principal contractor;
- Lot 2: FM managing agent, and
- Lot 6: building engineering services (mechanical and electrical).
Lots 1 and 2 allow the appointment of a service provider to deliver multiple services – bundled or total facilities management – incorporating elements of physical asset management and service management. Lot 6 involves installation and maintenance of mechanical, electrical and building fabric, including emergency response, life cycle works and planned upgrades.
Jeremy Campbell, executive director of marketing and business development at EMCOR UK, described the contract as “a fantastic opportunity” that “recognises our expertise in workplace and facilities management services as well as our commitment to delivering social value”.
He added that the framework would “provide a flexible and efficient procurement solution for Fusion21 members to help save money and generate social value”.
Mark Chadwick, director of business services at Fusion21, said: “The tender process was highly competitive and… has identified the best suppliers for our members to use. A further, real benefit to our members and their communities is the social value delivery that is aligned to organisational priorities and can be monitored and reported against for all call-offs.”
