We have been appointed as suppliers to a number of significant frameworks for mechanical and electrical services across the north west and beyond.
Kimpton have been successfully appointed as suppliers to a number of significant frameworks for mechanical and electrical work across the north west and beyond.
A ‘framework agreement’ is ‘an agreement that allows a buying group or authority to establish terms with contractors to work to an agreed price and standard over an agreed period.
The thinking behind a framework agreement for the contracting organisation is that it will save them ongoing time and paperwork as those who are selected and on the agreed list have been pre-approved to deliver work at that price and to an agreed standard. For a contractor like Kimpton, we have found over many years that it can help build long term relationships with a client, knowing the often thorny issue of price is already agreed. This allows us to focus on getting the job done and delivering great service.
We are currently members of four framework agreements as follows:
1. Rise Construction Framework
Rise is the UK’s only pro-social construction framework with a proven track record of supporting deprived communities through procurement. We are pre-approved for M&E work from £0-50k and £50k to £3m in value. Click here for info.
2. NHS SBS Hard FM Framework
The NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) Framework manages the spend of over £1bn annually across sectors as diverse as electric car charging to staff travel arrangements. The Hard FM Framework covers many types of maintenance services for estates & facilities in almost every NHS organisation. Click here for more info.
