The Scape £1bn consultancy frameworks are allocated into three lots for Scotland and another three lots for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The public sector procurement organization picked five groups in total.
The works are yet to start in January 2021 and will run for four years. Also, there is an option of a two-year extension. Scape Scotland has its own framework because Scottish law and procurement regulation is different from the rest of the UK. It is based in Edinburgh.
The three lots for both territories are:
- Infrastructure, for consultancy services to support the design, delivery and maintenance of infrastructure
- Built environment, including surveying and design, project management and quantity surveying for new projects and current assets
- Place Shaping, for strategic advisory services ranging from funding advice, policy development, estate rationalisation, as well as asset, risk and development management.
The new frameworks are an evolution of the Scape has built environment consultancy services (BECS) framework and the evolution includes new frameworks. It was actually launched in 2016 with a quantum value of £350m.
