Frameworks Scotland 3 Appointment Win


McLaughlin & Harvey is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a place on Frameworks Scotland 3; a framework managed by Health Facilities Scotland, a service under NHS National Services Scotland.

Health Facilities Scotland launched Frameworks Scotland 3 for delivery of new build, refurbishment and backlog maintenance projects across NHS Scotland. The Frameworks Scotland 3 model will operate over a five-year period for publicly funded health and social care construction projects. It offers a simplified procurement process for these programmes to achieve the best value, quality, and shared learning.

Frameworks Scotland 3 is estimated to deliver up to £650million of healthcare projects over its 5-year duration. This will build on the success of Frameworks Scotland 2, which has seen projects delivered or in delivery with a total value of £630million.

As a Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP), we will act as ‘one stop shop’ solution provider, carrying out a diverse range of design, planning and construction via their integrated supply chains. We have developed long-term working relationships with our supply chains and will continue these relationships over the period of the framework agreement.

Gordon James, Director of Health Facilities Scotland said, “Our NHS is under immense pressure due to the current pandemic, and the need for future-proof healthcare facilities is paramount. Frameworks Scotland 3 provides our customers with peace-of-mind, knowing we have a team of leading construction firms vetted and eager to support new build and refurbishment projects. Our team has an in-depth knowledge of the framework and provide a wide range of technical and professional advice to client project teams throughout Scotland. Following our success with the recent NHS Louisa Jordan development we are looking forward to progressing a range of exciting and meaningful projects across NHS Scotland.”

McLaughlin & Harvey Operations Director Pat O’Hare said, “This win provides a significant opportunity for McLaughlin & Harvey as a Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) to work collaboratively and innovatively across the NHS Scotland estate. We will integrate with our NHS colleagues to deliver enhanced levels of construction quality and value for money, whilst working towards a Net-Zero NHS and maximising the extent of Social Value achievable back into our local communities. Operational until 2025, the procurement route offered through Frameworks Scotland 3 will be utilised by NHS Scotland Health Boards, Special Health Boards, Integrated Joint Boards (IJB’s) and other organisations within the sector.”
