AFL Architects has been appointed once more to the NHS Shared Business Services’ (SBS) Construction Consultancy framework as architects, lead consultants, and contract administrators.
With this appointment to all regional lots under the framework, the practice – which has UK offices in Manchester, Birmingham and London – can supply to NHS and public-sector clients nationwide. This provides a fully compliant route to market to access construction consultancy services.
The practice has also been appointed to the multi-disciplinary framework lot, ‘offering a one-stop-shop design team of specialist supporting consultants’. Through this offering, AFL says clients can access a complete turnkey solution – ‘with the benefits of cost-effectiveness, established relationships, and joined-up design’.
Director, Sheldon Walsh, said: “We are delighted to have been once again appointed to the SBS framework, both as architects and design team leaders to a full multi-disciplinary team. Due to our relationships across the NHS and wider public sector, we are already working alongside Trusts under the renewed framework, and are looking forward to the future opportunities it opens up for AFL.”
