Sutcliffe Secures two Significant Major National Frameworks wins with CHIC and PAGABO

Civil and structural engineering firm, Sutcliffe, has successfully secured its place on Pagabo’s latest Professional Services Framework, focusing on a range of disciplines within the public sector as well as being successfully appointed to CHIC's Newbuild Development Consultancy Framework.

Civil and structural engineering firm Sutcliffe has achieved notable success by securing places on two prestigious national frameworks, further solidifying its position as a leader in the field.

Firstly, the firm, has been appointed to Pagabo’s latest Professional Services Framework, a £1.3 billion initiative focused on a range of public sector disciplines.

As one of the few SMEs included in multiple lots on the framework, Sutcliffe will provide Civil and Structural Engineering, Building Surveying, and Health and Safety Consultancy services, including Principal Design, to public sector clients across the UK.

Sutcliffe joins an esteemed group of national organisations on the framework which supports NHS and health service providers, education institutions, housing associations, highways and infrastructure projects, and central government agencies.

Sean Keyes, CEO of Sutcliffe, expressed his pride in this phenomenal achievement, stating, “To be appointed on Pagabo’s Professional Services Framework is a wonderful achievement and reaffirms our commitment to the public sector, building on how we have continued to supply quality services to a high level of satisfaction, encouraging collaboration and delivering right first time, every time. We take pride in our contribution to vital projects across the UK and as we continue to establish ourselves as leaders in civil and structural engineering, building surveying and geo-environmental, I do not doubt that this appointment on Pagabo’s framework will be one of our many successes in 2024 and the team are looking forward to working with Pagabo and its partners”

Sutcliffe’s inclusion on this framework is only the latest achievement in its impressive track record of over 4,469 public sector projects completed in the past five years, including high-profile projects for Liverpool’s Women’s Hospital, Macmillan Cancer Centre, the University of Salford, the Ministry of Justice, and the Department for Education.

Additionally, Sutcliffe has been appointed to CHIC’s Newbuild Development Consultancy Framework.

This eight-year framework is part of CHIC’s efforts to establish a Gold Standard in development frameworks, focusing on tackling the UK’s housing shortage through estate regeneration, newbuilds, refurbishments, and retrofits.

As part of CHIC’s new framework, Sutcliffe will sit on two workstreams delivering structural and civil engineering services for a range of large estate regeneration projects, as well as providing principal designer services to assist with the planning and management of the pre-construction phase of all building work.

Sutcliffe, selected through a competitive tender process, will be involved in diverse projects including newbuild, refurbishment and retrofit, placing prominence on quality, innovation and sustainability across the UK.

Keyes commented: “We are really proud to have been appointed on the CHIC Newbuild Development Framework. Sutcliffe’s commitment to addressing the housing shortage and driving redevelopment and regeneration is the cornerstone of our work, and we have worked on some incredible projects across the UK that champion innovative solutions and sustainable methods of construction.

“Forming a partnership with CHIC is an exciting opportunity for us to continue creating high-quality homes across the UK each year, building long-lasting communities, adding to the 20,000 homes we engineer. 

“At Sutcliffe, we are continuously setting the standard in the construction sector, and we are eager to leverage our expertise within CHIC’s Newbuild Development Framework. With unrivalled knowledge in civil and structural engineering, Sutcliffe’s experience in delivering new build developments will bring communities to life, providing safe, secure and sustainable housing for future generations”.

Headquartered in Liverpool with a prominent office in Manchester, Sutcliffe remains focused on delivering sustainable, future-ready homes across the North West and the entire UK.
