Eddisons wins place on Crown Commercial Service (CCS) estate management services framework (RM6168)

Eddisons has secured a four year appointment as a key supplier on the Government’s £0.5bn Crown Commercial Service (CCS) estate management services framework. The national procurement framework enables government bodies and other public sector organisations to call on the services of suppliers who have gone through the rigorous selection procedure.

As a CCS supplier Eddisons will work across all aspects of the property lifecycle, including operation and management, advising on a broad range of public buildings and land, from civic offices, universities and schools, to hospitals, prisons, brownfield sites and leisure centres. The framework will enable the firm to deliver end-to-end corporate real estate advisory services to the public sector.

Javid Patel, who heads Eddisons’ growing public sector team, said: “We’re pleased to have been appointed to this prestigious new national procurement framework, the CCS. It’s a major win for our practice and a significant milestone, further strengthening our position as a partner of choice right across the public sector.

“Our appointment is shored up by Eddisons’ growing in-house teams and partner alliances, enabling us to deliver a holistic end-to-end service. Support for public clients in addressing the new real-estate challenges they face in the wake of the pandemic is vital, in addition to driving economic growth, supporting the Government’s levelling up agenda and the move to a net zero carbon

Eddisons, employs more than 300 staff across 19 UK offices and, with its partners, will provide strategic and professional services to public-sector clients in its new CCS role. The appointment will also see the firm deliver technical surveys, feasibility studies and estates management services.

Specialist services such as government soft landings, which enables a smooth transition from a building’s construction to its operation, will also be provided by Eddisons, working with global
facilities management and sustainability support services group Engie.

Eddisons’ growing client list of public sector organisations also includes Southampton, Enfield, Blackpool, Peterborough and Kirklees councils. The firm has also secured multiple framework
appointments such as Birmingham City Council and government procurement partner Bramble Hub. Earlier this year Eddisons announced it had won the contract to advise NHS Property Services on its £3bn portfolio of over 4,000 properties.

Managing partner Anthony Spencer said: “The framework appointment demonstrates the hard work and commitment that the Eddisons team have put in to meet the rigorous quality standards required by CCS. “Providing service excellence across the public sector has always been at the heart of our business and we are proud to be associated with such a prestigious framework, which will enable us to continue to grow our market share in the public sector as part of our wider business plan.”

The CCS estate management framework is designed to be available to all UK public sector bodies when commissioning real-estate advice.
