ICF but will run as SCF Consult, in parallel with North West Construction Hub, one of the biggest consultancy frameworks in the UK, with Mace securing the top position on all three lots. With speed to market and Mace’s demonstrable capability to deliver the objectives of ‘Build Back Better,’ SCF Consult is ideally timed and placed to enable high quality, immediate support to local and central government bodies. The national focus on decarbonisation and the increasing importance of localism aligns precisely with Mace core values and national network of offices.
SCF Consult enables Mace to be directly appointed by any public sector body to deliver property and project related consultancy services. Through the framework, Mace will provide major project and property asset consultancy services, for urban renewal and social infrastructure such as schools, civic buildings and leisure facilities on behalf of local authorities across the country.
Mace are the sole supplier on lot 2 of the SCF Consult framework, for projects commissioned in South East England, including London, Hampshire and the Home Counties.
The framework will bring together the whole project team and all the relevant pre-construction information at an earlier stage, leading to greater cost and time certainty, resulting in a superior quality project. The guiding principles; Quicker, Greener, Better, Cheaper will underpin all that the framework offers.
SCF Consult is one of the UK’s largest public sector consultancy frameworks by value and is intended to complement existing construction frameworks (Southern Construction Framework, North West Construction Hub and National Association of Construction Frameworks) operated by the framework authorities.
SCF Consult’s primary regions are the UK’s South East, South West and North West and the West Midlands, providing project, programme and integrated service support to local and central government.
Mace will use its expertise in delivering consultancy and construction services to public sector bodies, including the Southern Construction Framework, to shape new infrastructure across the country through SCF Consult.
