The NWCH allows local authorities and other public sector organisations in the North West to fast track consultant selection via the framework arrangements.
The Capita Symonds appointment covers the valuation and market analysis lots of medium value in the £50,000 to £150,000 range.
The four-year framework will provide the opportunity for a range of services including asset valuations, advice associated with the acquisition or disposal of property, and compulsory purchase advice.
As the top-scoring consultant within Lot 30, Capita Symonds can be directly appointed and will also be invited to submit proposals where framework users want to progress an appointment via a mini competition.
Capita Symonds said that it has been demonstrated that projects delivered through well managed collaborative arrangements - such as the NWCH - can deliver savings on construction projects in the region of 10%, while consistently being delivered on time and within budget.
