Alder King named on Crown Commercial Service Framework
Alder King has been awarded a coveted place on the Government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Estates Professional Services framework.
The firm has been appointed to the South West & Wales Regional Panel, enabling it to provide its extensive range of property services to public sector organisations across the region.
Alder King will also continue on the CCS National Panel as part of a consortium of six property firms providing a full range of property services to public sector bodies across the UK.
The CCS is an Executive Agency of the Cabinet Office and supports the public sector in achieving maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. Bodies covered by the Estates Professional Framework include central government, local authorities, health, education and emergency services.
James Chaffer, lead partner in Alder King’s public sector team, said: “Being named as a service provider on this panel is a significant coup for Alder King. As established market leaders in the South West and Wales, this will allow us to share our value-added expertise with public sector bodies across the region. This includes helping to reduce the size of the estate, exiting inefficient leases, reducing running costs and releasing capital while supporting the government’s sustainability agenda.”
The contract covers all Alder King services including development consultancy, lease advisory, business rates, building surveying, property management, planning and valuation.
The award follows Alder King’s appointment to a series of public sector contracts by Bristol City Council, City of Bristol College, Cardiff City Council, Welsh Government, Sedgemoor District Council and Wiltshire Council.
