AHR wins place on Crown Commercial Service £2.9bn framework

AHR has won a place on the multi-billion pound Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Project Management and Full Design Team Services framework.

The multi award-winning architecture and building consultancy practice has been appointed to two major lots:

  • Lot 1 Multi-Disciplinary Services
  • Lot 3 Architectural Services

The framework enables public sector bodies across the UK to procure consultancy expertise for construction and property projects.

CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.

Karle Burford, Director at AHR, said:

“We are very proud to have won a place on this new CCS framework, which will provide many opportunities across our business.

“This will provide many benefits to existing and new clients via an efficient procurement route. The framework will save both time and money and give access to our experienced team and supply chain.

“AHR has a strong reputation within the public sector, having delivered successful projects through frameworks such as Fusion21, North West Construction Hub, South West Construction, YORconsult and NHS Shared Business Services.”

AHR’s multi-sector expertise ensures a wide breadth and depth of experience, working across a range of sectors including local government, education, civic and community, office and workplace, residential and transport.

Clients can now utilise the CCS framework to appoint AHR’s multi-disciplinary or architectural team on projects via Direct Award or Mini-Tender. The full team includes project managers, architects, building consultancy, principal designers, lead designers, cost consultants, BIM co-ordinators, building services engineers and civil and structural engineers.

With offices in key cities and regions throughout the UK, AHR is well placed to draw on local experience and market intelligence to deliver successful projects. AHR’s award winning projects include Keynsham Civic Centre, Greater Manchester Police Force HQ and most recently the University of Huddersfield’s Oastler Building.
