The services that will be offered under the frameworks include full multidisciplinary design consultancy, client advisory services, development management, infrastructure and construction. It has also been designed to support the delivery of projects being undertaken by the privatised elements of public sector organisations, charities, housing organisations including the delivery of new schools which form part of a section 106 agreement.

Scape Venture has already supported a number of high-profile clients to achieve their desired outcomes and maximum social value on a number of projects, including the RSPB Sherwood Forest visitor centre, the National Space Centre and the University of Cambridge Eddington Estate Management Office. The new frameworks take a strengthened approach to responsible procurement, ensuring speed, value for money, inclusive social value and enhanced performance management.

Mark Robinson, Scape Group chief executive, said: “We are tremendously proud of the volume of successful, and high-profile projects that Scape Venture has enabled in recent years by bringing together the very best of public and private procurement expertise.

“Our strengthened Scape Venture offering will continue to generate greater value for money and project success for privately funded projects, while creating significant and measurable social value across the United Kingdom.

“The delivery partners we have selected will all be supported by strong local supply chains which will ensure projects are delivered on-time and on-budget, while stimulating local economic growth by keeping the pound local.”

Victoria Brambini, managing director of Perfect Circle, said: “Public and private sector partnerships undoubtedly achieve better built environment projects - greater collaboration through the forming of stronger long-term relationships ultimately results in schemes which deliver real social value for the community.

“The next generation of Scape Venture frameworks will continue to enable efficient procurement and, crucially, generate local spend through a strong, nation-wide supply chain network. We’re committed to creating opportunities for local suppliers, engaging with high levels of SMEs, and designing and creating spaces and places which bring extra benefit to end users.”
