Extending its multi-disciplinary services across Scotland, Pick Everard has successfully been appointed to two leading national frameworks at a combined value of £120 million.

The move sees the firm join one of the largest public sector consultancy framework contracts in the country, strengthening its capabilities within Scotland’s construction sector.

Supporting regional economic growth, Pick Everard will operate across a four-year term on Scotland Excel’s Building Construction Consultancy Framework. With a total value of £100m, the framework directly serves local government need via a platform funded by Scotland’s 32 local authorities.

The move coincides with its appointment to six lots of the Scottish Police Authority’s Estates Professional Services Framework, which will last for two years, with the option to extend for a further two periods of up to 12 months in duration.

Patricia Ward, strategic development manager at Pick Everard, said: “These are both significant framework awards for our Scottish offices, which coincide with considerable pressures for local authorities and the public sector, amidst the cost of living crisis and tightening budgets.

“Our appointment is intended to help relieve some of that pressure, combining our pool of expertise via a streamlined method of distribution that makes procurement quick, simple and easy to move from appointment to delivery to completion.

“Through this framework, clients will have the opportunity to appoint us via direct award, and we will have the ability to compete for mini-competitions across a broad range of projects. We are delighted to have been selected as a supplier and look forward to helping transition change across Scotland’s built environment.”
