Fusion21 has announced the suppliers successfully appointed to its national Grounds Maintenance Framework, offering a potential combined worth of up to £85m over a four-year period.
A total of 12 highly skilled firms — including SMEs — have secured a place on the framework which is specifically designed to meet the needs of housing providers and other organisations operating within the public sector.
The framework provides a range of services from grass and hedge cutting to weed control, arboricultural work, fencing and litter picking — and also offers a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) lot, enabling Fusion21 members to gain assistance with capturing, updating and analysing map data used to manage large grounds maintenance portfolios.
Phil Woodhead, Category Manager (Compliance) at Fusion21, said: “This framework will support improvement and maintenance works for outdoor spaces of any scale and is ideal for maintaining the appearance of housing estates, neighbourhoods and shared outdoor space.
“Fusion21 members accessing this framework will benefit from greater efficiency savings in addition to working with pre-qualified supply partners who comply with local safeguarding policies.”
Fusion21 provides procurement services and OJEU compliant frameworks to the public sector, and is committed to making a difference in communities across the UK. To date the firm has saved its members more than £177m through the procurement process, created more than 4,500 jobs and generated £70m of community impact.
