J Tomlinson appointed to NHS Shared Business Services framework to deliver public sector construction and refurbishment works
January 12, 2021
J Tomlinson has been awarded multiple places on a NHS framework specialising in the delivery of public sector construction works.
Running for three years with the possibility of two 24-month extensions, the NHS Shared Business Services Public Sector Construction Works framework has been specially designed for healthcare and other public services to procure construction and refurbishment projects on time and within budget.
Delivering projects up to £5m
J Tomlinson has been appointed to lots one and two, delivering projects up to £5m in value across the West Midlands, East Midlands, Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East England.
The company is one of a limited number of contractors that have been appointed to each lot of this highly-competitive framework following a comprehensive tender process in which all interested parties were assessed on price, quality, as well as proven experience in providing a full turnkey building services package to clients, underlining J Tomlinson’s outstanding healthcare building and maintenance expertise.
A compliant route to market for NHS and other public sector organisations
Having commenced last month, the framework promises an efficient and compliant route to market for NHS bodies including Clinical Commissioning Groups, GP practices, acute, mental health, community and ambulance trusts, and charities and social enterprises.
As well as the NHS, the framework is open to other organisations operating in the public sector, including – but not limited to – education, housing, social care, leisure, libraries, blue light, plus offices and industrial and commercial buildings. Customers can directly award from a framework or run a mini-competition, providing more flexibility in the procurement process.
Works that J Tomlinson will deliver as part of the agreement include design, refurbishment, demolition, mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as any other services as required for a design and build or construct-only project.
NHS and public sector expertise – projects and frameworks
The company has delivered a range of construction projects to NHS and healthcare clients in recent times, including undertaking the major refurbishment of Glenfield Hospital’s Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU), as well as partnering with East Midlands Ambulance Service on a 3-year comprehensive facilities management contract worth approximately £1.2m per year.
With ample experience working across live healthcare and extra care facilities, the J Tomlinson’s is centred around protecting and preserving the patient environment via robust health and safety management and a professional yet unobtrusive approach.
A leading provider of refurbishment, engineering and construction services to both the public and private sectors, J Tomlinson is a member of wide range of key frameworks including NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOECPC) Estates Maintenance and Engineering Services, Fusion 21 Building and Asset Improvement Works, and Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Construction Works and Associated Services, helping clients easily and efficiently procure socially-conscious, best-value construction and refurbishment projects.
The framework will see J Tomlinson working with clients to identify and implement low carbon building opportunities in line with government targets for the UK to become net zero by 2050. An award-winning green energy services partner, J Tomlinson offers a range of services centred around future-proofing and modernising new and existing buildings and helping to tackle the global climate crisis.
