Place secured on unique Pagabo multi-regional framework

Coombs win position on the Pagabo Medium Works Framework

Pagabo, the construction procurement specialists, have launched an ambitious and ground-breaking Medium Works Framework. We’ve secured a position on this national framework in both the £1m to £5m and the £5m to £10m lots. The framework sets out to deliver SME friendly solutions for its clients and partners.

From January 2019, it means the public sector will have access to a gold standard service in a unique framework that offers the very best in standards at a local level – a bundle never before assembled on such a scale to SME construction organisations across the UK.

Social Return on Investment will also figure prominently whereby a positive impact is matched by the social value in monetary terms to benefit sectors such as local authority, education, health and housing.

With a fully supported and tailored solution, the new framework benefits are:

  • Coverage to 73 regional areas across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales – the big national framework on a local level.
  • Construction projects within the range of £250K to £10m.
  • SME friendly inclusive of transparent, simple, flexible and compliant procurement.
  • An emphasis on Social Value allocated 10% of the total award criteria.
  • Clients supported fully through tailored and dedicated project management.

Pagabo, Chief Executive Officer, Simon Toplass, said: “We’ve got off to a flying start with our Medium Works Framework, which is already gathering momentum. The team at Pagabo dedicated a great deal of time, to develop a ground-breaking framework that hits so many spots – tangible social value, supportive of SMEs with a  thorough regional focus.

“We constantly hear from our clients that they’re not just buying a building, they want a service that gets them to the outcomes they want. With our contractors sharing our vision, we will certainly demonstrate the very best in service to our clients. We’re very excited about working closely with Coombs, who have a great track record in delivering outstanding outcomes. We’re looking forward to a great future.”
