Three new Pagabo framework appointments for Sewell Group

Companies from Yorkshire-based Sewell Group have been appointed to three new Pagabo frameworks for consultancy and construction. The frameworks enable clients across the public sector to access Sewell Group’s decarbonisation or estates consultancy to help improve their estate. They are launched as Pagabo have been announced as one of the first framework hosts to be accredited by NHS England as part of a move to consolidate the number of frameworks used by the health system.

The success includes the appointment of Sewell Construction and I&G to two new decarbonisation frameworks for health and the wider public sector, which will allow clients to go directly to contractors to support their efforts towards achieving their Net Zero plans.

Projects delivered under this framework will be geared towards retrofitting of existing buildings and may include schemes such as installation of specialist heating, cooling and ventilation systems, renewable energy sources or energy saving lighting, as well as fabric upgrades and the replacement of inefficient glazing.
The company’s estates consultancy, Shared Agenda, has also been successfully reappointed to Pagabo’s professional services framework, one of only 33 organisations to be continuing on from the previous iteration of the framework.

This framework provides clients access to solutions across the full spectrum of estates services, with Shared Agenda have expanded the range of service they are able to offer to clients, including master planning, strategic programme advice and leisure strategies, as well as broader asset and estate management services.

Sewell Group have almost 150 years of experience in planning, advising, investing and delivering construction, estates and facilities projects across the north of England, with a great deal of expertise around refurbishment, remodelling and new build in public sector estates including healthcare and education.

Successful projects over the last few years include the planning, investment and construction of West Hull Health Hub, the development of a strategic plan to increase the number of places for children with special educational needs in South Yorkshire, the extensive refurbishment of the 8000m2 Endeavour school into a new base for Trinity House Academy, and the conversion of the former Central Fire Station in Hull into a low carbon impact modern teaching space for Ron Dearing UTC.

Jo Barnes, Managing Director of Sewell Estates, said:

“We’re delighted to have been awarded places on these three frameworks, giving current and future clients alternative ways to work with us to deliver their estates projects. Over the past few years we’ve really showcased our expertise in projects that enable our clients to be more sustainable, so we’re particularly pleased to see this recognised through our appointment to the decarbonisation frameworks.

“Across our group, we have extensive experience across the public sector, enabling us to take projects from strategic planning right through to completion and delivery. We’re looking forward to working with partners across the country to bring their estates projects to life and help support them on the road to Net Zero.”
