Property consultant Eddisons, which is headquartered in Leeds, has continued to expand its public sector footprint after securing a place on a new two-year Government procurement framework that will enable the firm to provide property-related services to the NHS.

The new NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) Consultancy and Advisory Services for Health Framework launched in March and will see NHS SBS partner with health service organisations across the country to increase efficiency, generate cost savings and improve corporate services.

The appointment is Eddisons’ fourth Government framework selection, with previously secured places on the Crown Commercial Services, schools buying organisation ESPO and Homes England procurement frameworks already generating significant work for the firm.

The latest framework appointment will enable the firm to provide property-related services in areas including capital asset strategy PFI, LIFT scheme reviews and hand backs and property consultancy and strategy.

Javid Patel, who heads Eddisons’ public sector team, said: “We have recently launched a suite of boutique consultancy services that are helping to drive efficiency and improvements for clients across the public sector.

“These include transformative AI tech that provides site feasibility appraisals in a matter of hours, and our PFI discovery services, which have been really successful in helping public sector clients to unwrap PFI schemes for smooth hand-back and negotiated settlements.”

The firm also recently launched its Infrastructure and decarbonisation services and has been appointed by Bradford City Council to carry out feasibility studies into developing solar firms at two sites in the borough.

“Our appointment on this latest Government procurement framework underlines Eddisons’ continued investment in our services to the public sector, helping us improve our access to the market,” said Mr Patel.
