NORR secures place on £1.6bn NHS Shared Business Services HPCCAS Framework Agreement

We have been named as a supplier on the new NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) framework agreement for the provision of Healthcare Planning, Construction Consultancy and Ancillary Services (HPCCAS).

This £1.6bn framework agreement offers the National Health Service (NHS) and other public sector organisations a compliant and cost-effective route for procuring construction-related services including architecture, civil and structural engineering and surveying, amongst others.

The HPCCAS framework agreement will help the NHS achieve net-zero focusing on sustainability and will help construction firms ensure efficient supply chains and aid the NHS in reducing carbon emissions.

“We are immensely pleased to have been appointed to the new HPCCAS framework as it offers a simple and cost-effective procurement route for our clients, said Francesca Simoni, Health Sciences Director for NORR.

“Our Health Sciences team is engaged in architectural design that considers emerging influences, adoption of technology – and most importantly, patient-centric care. This partnership with NHS Shared Business Services strengthens our ability to work with NHS clients to design sustainable healthcare spaces and decarbonize its existing estates.”

Melissa King, senior category manager – Construction and Infrastructure NHS Shared Business Services added: “We’re excited to launch our Healthcare Planning, Construction Consultancy and Ancillary Services framework agreement, which replaces our successful Construction Consultancy Services 2 framework agreement. It is designed to support the NHS and wider public sector by providing high-quality, innovative and cost-effective solutions through UK-wide coverage, a unique depth of expertise and a broad range of suppliers.”

We have been awarded a place on Lot 1 Architecture and Lot 7 Multidisciplinary Services across all regions in the UK.
