NHS Building for Wales Regional Framework

4th Apr 2019

At the end of last year we were selected as regional cost managers for the South East and South West of Wales, on to the NHS Building for Wales Regional Framework, following a competitive tender process.

This means that Lee Wakemans is an approved supplier of cost management services for the delivery of major capital projects within NHS Wales with an estimated construction value of between 4m pounds and 12m pounds. We will have the opportunity to bid on the provision of cost management services on projects within these geographical areas.

Speaking of the appointment, Director of Lee Wakemans, Mike Hughes said, "We have significant experience in delivering project and cost management services for healthcare projects in both the public and private sector. Being approved to this framework is very exciting for us, as it will give us the opportunity to work on some important developments improving access to 21st century healthcare in Wales. As a business we have supported the NHS in Wales in excess of 30 years and are delighted to have the opportunity to bring our expertise and to continue our support in a field where our knowledge could really be of value."

Other projects that Lee Wakemans' healthcare services have helped deliver include; a national roll-out programme of diagnostic centres across the UK for NHS England, the new Second Children's Hospital for Wales, mental health facilities across South and West Wales, and a state of the art research and development facility in Liverpool for Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust. The company is also undertaking the project and cost management of international healthcare construction projects in the Middle East.

The framework agreements have been executed by Velindre NHS Trust as host to NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP). The frameworks will be for the duration of four years with an option to extend by a further two years.
