Rapleys are proud to announce a 4 year framework with Coventry City Council. The commission is to provide maintenance and condition surveys, project surveying and design work across a wide range of corporate and educational buildings within the Coventry City boundary.
As part of Coventry City Council’s 10 year business plan, Coventry City Council have set out their priorities and vision for the future of the city. The Council are committed to attracting new businesses, improving the standards of educational facilities and ultimately helping the people of Coventry deliver effective and worthwhile community services, such as libraries and youth services. Each initiative will have clear direction and innovative ideas at the core of their models.
Rapleys role in achieving this for the city is twofold. The first part of the commission includes maintenance and condition surveys of necessary buildings and will commence with a batch of pilot surveys in the area. The second lot includes surveying and engineering projects.
The project is due to be completed by September 2020, with an option to extend for a further 2 years. For Rapleys the commission is set to deliver approximately £100k of consultancy fees each year, for the four years. This is in line with the Council’s budget and will ensure value is retained in their commitment to creating a sustainable future.
This commission coincides seamlessly with the Building Consultancy Groups expansion and the win is critical for the team as a whole to shape a very exciting future, especially for the Birmingham based members of the team who will tackle this instruction head on. Justin Tuckwell, Head of Rapleys Building Consultancy Group comments; ‘From our business development perspective, starting such a varied and large project will provide invaluable experience to our graduate surveyors in the team as well as further enhancing the portfolios of our more experienced surveyors. The Councils ambitions align with ours and we are confident of a long and prosperous collaboration.’
The commission win is part of a strategic plan that Rapleys have developed to grow and develop public sector client portfolios, sharing the best practices that they already provide to private sector clients.
