Procurement group Scape has selected six consultants for its next-generation £1bn suite of professional services frameworks.

The renew framework includes a new ‘Place Shaping’ lot worth £150m, set up to offer clients more strategic advisory services from funding advice, policy development, estate rationalisation, as well as asset, risk and development management.

Selected consultants will help the public sector to achieve better project outcomes, from individual assets through to major city centre regeneration, while embedding sustainability and zero carbon options.

Infrastructure Triskelion ( Arcadis, Sweco and Fairhurst) £100m

The new frameworks are an evolution of the £350m Scape Built Environment Consultancy Services framework, which was launched in 2016.

Led by Perfect Circle – a company jointly owned by Pick Everard, Gleeds, Aecom – the BECS framework was widely embraced by the public sector, delivering more than 1,000 commissions and engaging with more than 335 SMEs through its local supply chains.

The new agreements will run from January 2021 until 2025, with the option of a two-year extension.

Mark Robinson, group chief executive at Scape, said: “We’ve evolved these services and applied the lessons learned from the hugely successful BECS framework.

“It means our new frameworks are not only hugely comprehensive but incredibly pertinent to a public sector now leading the UK’s push to build back better, build back greener and that is eager to help accelerate the economic recovery.”

He added: “A core commitment to community enrichment, job creation, apprenticeships and tangible social value runs through every lot.”

Jason Millett, chief executive for consultancy at Mace, said: “I am delighted that Mace has been appointed to deliver SCAPE Consultancy, Place Shaping.

“These are particularly challenging times for the public sector when budgets are under great pressure to deliver more with less.

“We will draw upon our decades of experience and expertise, working with our expert supply chain to successfully unlock the potential of our clients’ projects to create a lasting legacy and societal value for the long-term.”
