Faithful+Gould, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has won its 250th project through Pagabo’s Professional Services Framework – following its appointment on a unique brownfield regeneration project to facilitate future residential development in the North West.
The consultancy has been appointed project management consultant and client representative for the Festival Gardens development in Liverpool. The project marks Faithful+Gould’s latest win since being re-appointed to Lot 1 of the framework in April 2020.
Liverpool City Council, in partnership with Homes England and the LCR Combined Authority, is set to deliver site remediation and strategic infrastructure that will create a development platform for IGF Developments Ltd to deliver a new residential scheme by 2030. This will comprise around 1,500 new eco-friendly homes on currently derelict land to the south of the city centre.
Faithful+Gould will provide project management services supporting Liverpool City Council for the strategic infrastructure works as part of the site preparation.
It is a further example of the benefits of Pagabo’s framework, which has enabled the consultancy to deliver single service and multi-discipline solutions throughout the UK across a range of sectors, including local and central government, higher education, health, highways, transportation, leisure and heritage.
Jon Sealy, Managing Director at Faithful+Gould, said: “Festival Gardens is a fantastic project which will support the need for more housing in the region, as well as using innovative construction methods to create ‘green’ homes that are fit for the future.
“It also clearly demonstrates the benefits of being part of Pagabo’s framework and represents the 250th project win for Faithful+Gould since our reappointment in April 2020. Our place on the framework has provided a great opportunity to deliver the best value services to the public sector, and we look forward to reaching our next significant milestone.”
In order to be considered for Pagabo’s Professional Services Framework, consultants went through a rigorous OJEU compliant tender process and were required to prove strong finances, relevant experience and to echo Pagabo’s passion for delivering social value, supporting SMEs, and technology.
Jonathan Oram, National Framework Manager at Pagabo, added: “It’s fantastic to reach the 250th appointment of Faithful+Gould through our Professional Services Framework, a milestone that has been surpassed just 18 months into the framework’s inception.
“It’s clear from this milestone that clients across the UK are seeing the numerous benefits that come with an appointment through Pagabo’s Professional Services Framework, including compliance, speed and real value for money, which this route to market continues to demonstrate. Here’s to another 250 projects!”
As part of its commitment to reflect those values, Faithful+Gould ensures small businesses make up a significant part of its supply chain, which is currently more than 80% SME.
It has also generated a social return on investment of £5.25m, based on a range of measurements, such as the value of apprentices on projects (£66k), safeguarded jobs (£280k), GVA (£1.7m) and LM3 (£1.4m).
