Aberdeenshire Council reappoints Faithful+Gould to Construction Design Services Framework
Faithful+Gould has been appointed by Aberdeenshire Council to support the delivery of over £200 million of capital projects as part of its Construction Design Services Framework.
The three-year contract – with an option to extend by one year – will see Faithful+Gould provide quantity surveying and project management services for the alteration and refurbishment of existing buildings and the construction of new buildings commissioned by Aberdeenshire Council as well as Aberdeen City Council and the Highland Council.
The appointment extends Faithful+Gould’s place on the framework which initially ran from 2015-2019, during which a wide range of education, residential, industrial, and leisure and tourism building projects were delivered.
Simon Thornton-Smith, Faithful+Gould director, said: “Aberdeenshire Council are an important client for us and our reappointment to the Construction Design Services Framework provides a solid foundation for growth in the North of Scotland.
“While we begin this framework during unprecedented times, we are fully focussed on supporting the council in successfully delivering its objectives in the short and long term.”
Notable projects delivered to date by Faithful+Gould include six new build nurseries and 71 nursery refurbishments, as part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Early Learning and Childcare expansion programme; and the £3.5m restoration of Ballater Royal Railway Station, a listed tourist attraction which had been devasted by fire.
In addition to the Construction Design Services Framework, Faithful+Gould, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is providing programme, project and cost management services to support the delivery of Aberdeen City Council’s 2018-2023 Housing Programme. Atkins will also provide architecture and MEP services on this programme.
