HBL Associates have been appointed to the EN:Procure Consultancy Framework.
EN:Procure, the specialist procurement arm of social housing consortium Efficiency North Holdings Limited, has appointed HBL Associates to their new Consultancy Framework following an unprecedented level of interest, with over 600 tenders received from consultants operating across the North and East Midlands.
The new framework will provide a full range of leading edge, cost effective, easily accessible consultancy services for Efficiency North’s membership and customers in the social housing and wider public sector in Northern England. Designed predominantly for social housing, it can also be applied to other public buildings or premises owned and/or managed by Public Sector organisations, including, but not limited to, schools, universities, infrastructure sites and offices in Yorkshire & Humber, the East Midlands and North West.
The framework has an estimated total value of £10.4m across its 4-year lifetime across 8 lots, with HBL Associates being appointed in the Structural and Civil Engineering services lot for the North West.
EN:Procure Director of Operations Emma Mottram commented, “Following a detailed and challenging test of so many tenderers’ capacity, competency and efficiency we are delighted to have achieved such a diverse offer in the Framework, with a mix of larger national practices as well as smaller local businesses. We are very much looking forward to working with them to find solutions that meet the needs of our members and their communities in the current challenging economic climate.”
