Link establishes new framework for Consultants and Contractors

Link Group Ltd’s contribution to the Scottish Government’s target of delivering at least 50,000 affordable homes by March 2021 took a major step forward by establishing a new procurement framework for Consultants and Contractors. 

Link has collaborated with a range of public sector partners to offer an effective and efficient route for procurement by developing a new 4-year framework. Following an extensive procurement process which measured quality and value, a range of consultants and main contractors has now been appointed. The framework was also developed to allow other organisations to call off services they require for their own programmes providing a streamlined cost effective procurement process.

The new framework comprises:

Professional Services

  • Architectural Services (including Principal Designer role)
  • Civil and Structural Engineering Services (including Principal Designer role)
  • Quantity Surveying (including Employer’s Agent) Services
  • Landscape Architect Services
  • Energy Advisor Services
  • CDM Advisor Services 

Main Building Contractor

  • Low value – contracts up to £1,500,000 
  • Medium value  - contracts from £1,500,001 to £4,104,394
  • High value - contracts above £4,104,394 and
  • Argyll & Bute Local Authority Area

Link engaged with a range of organisations to establish the Frameworks requirements, and including the following:

Link group of companies, Cassiltoun Housing Association, East Renfrewshire Council, Glasgow West Housing Association, Govan Housing Association, Maryhill Housing Association Ltd, New Gorbals Housing Association, New Gorbals Property Management Ltd, Paragon Housing Association, Partick Housing Association, Partick Works, Queens Cross Housing Association, Renfrewshire Council, Tollcross Housing Association and Yoker Housing Association.
