Focus Consultants has been awarded a position on a major national framework to supply consultancy services for property & building advice and management services.

The position on the ESPO 2664_18 framework will run until December 2020 with an option to extend for a further year until December 2021.

It means that public-sector clients and social housing providers in the UK can procure services from Focus in the knowledge that the procurement process has already been carried out in a professional manner, avoiding the need for a full tender process when searching for suppliers – saving them time and money.

The ESPO 2664_18 framework is the ninth framework that Focus is currently appointed on.

“As well as working in the private sector, the teams at Focus work extensively across the public sector – providing specialist services to local authorities, charities and other organisations,” said Focus partner Keith Butler.

“Our services are unique – ranging from project management, design services and building surveying to feasibility studies, rationalisation and remodelling, funding support and economic development – and we have worked with a huge range of clients from the NHS and bluelight agencies and through to local authorities and housing providers.”

Focus Consultants is based at Phoenix Business Park, Nottingham, and has offices in London, Leicester and Boston in Lincolnshire.

It specialises in creative approaches to securing funding packages and delivering high quality projects across the UK. Since its creation in 1994, Focus has helped to secure more than £953 million of grant assistance for a range of projects and businesses across the UK and delivered more than £1.3 billion of projects and programmes – making it one of the most successful companies of its kind.

ESPO (Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation), based in Leicestershire, is a public sector owned organisation committed to helping customers achieve the best results by practice in procurement, sourcing, supply chain partner support and management and contract management. The 2664_18 framework is fully compliant with UK/OJEU procurement legislation, where all providers listed are assessed prior to being accepted onto the framework.
