Hydrock secures position on NEPO framework
The integrated engineering design, energy and sustainability consultancy has won a place on the North East Procurement Organisation support services for the development of the built environment framework.
Awarded a place on Lot 5 for Mechanical and Electrical Services, the win opens the door to working on some of the largest public sector infrastructure projects in the North East, which are awarded by NEPO on behalf of the region’s 12 local authorities.
Chris Chennell, regional director for the North East at Hydrock, said the appointment would help “cement the position of and grow our Newcastle and Leeds offices.”
He added: “We acknowledge that this was a highly competitive tender and we’re exceptionally proud to have been successful.”
The framework is available for use by all contracting authorities throughout the North East including local authorities, NHS bodies, central government, emergency services, schools and universities, and registered charities.
There are 13 lots covering a wide range of support services, including two lots designed to assist in the appointing of a lead organisation with an accompanying multi-disciplinary team.
A total of 42 suppliers were awarded places by NEPO on the framework agreement and can be appointed either by direct award or further competition.
