£95m Edinburgh consultants framework winners

Aaron Morby 12 months ago

More than 50 consultants have won places on a major new consultancy framework for Edinburgh following one of the most competitive procurement exercises ever held by the council.

The move is expected to unlock up to £95m in architectural, engineering and project management contracts over the next four years.

It will be used to support the delivery of schools, early years centres, sports facilities and affordable homes for residents across the Capital.

The inclusion for the first time of Passivhaus Architects spots will ensure that new buildings are energy efficient and that the city’s net-zero carbon by 2030 target sits at the heart of all capital projects.

*All ranked in order of highest scoring bid first

The council’s commitment to prioritising small business spending has resulted in more than 70% of successful bidders being SMEs.

Every supplier is also committed to paying the Living Wage and carrying out community benefits as part of any work they secure.

Councillor Rob Munn, Finance and Resources Convener, said: “With over 180 bidders vying for a place, this is one of the biggest procurement exercises we’ve ever undertaken as a council.

“At a time when the Council faces great financial pressures, the flexibility offered by the new approach is also expected to generate efficiencies of more than £10 million over four years.”
