Construction project management consultancy RECOM Solutions is celebrating a major boost with its latest framework appointment.
RECOM has been appointed following a tendering process to a £ 600m framework for ethical regeneration schemes across northern England and North Wales.
It is the latest to be launched by Liverpool-based framework operator Rise. RECOM has won places for general construction, refurbishment, safety and compliance and project management work.
Users of the new framework will include NHS Foundation Trusts and clinical commissioning groups, schools, academies and universities, social housing providers, local authorities, community-led housing organizations, charities, emergency services and third sector groups across the north west and North Wales, Yorkshire and Humber and Lincolnshire.
Rise is a pro-social business procurement group which provides agency services to construction frameworks, and supports communities by investing profits into local initiatives.
RECOM director Jason McKnight said: “Securing places on the new Rise framework is a tremendous endorsement of the quality and range of work that we currently undertake, and presents a fantastic opportunity for the company.
“It’s a very prestigious and significant initiative for our client base, as well as ourselves.
“Rise is very focused on social value, which chimes with our own ethos as a company. We are involved with a number of local organizations as a way of giving back to the community, including The Broughton Trust to offer employment opportunities to disadvantaged young people, and Salford Lads Club, where our head of operations James Holmes is on the board of trustees . ”
RECOM, which has 30 staff, recently moved to new headquarters on the Waters Edge Business Park at Salford Quays.
The company, which was founded by Joseph Dillon and Jason, undertakes construction project management and main contracting work across sectors including healthcare, education, retail and leisure, commercial and residential.
It also provides consultancy services to assist in the delivery of projects, such as design, risk, quality, health and safety and sustainability alongside passive fire protection and cladding.
Clients of the company include Barry’s Bootcamp, Pot Kettle Black, Urban Village Bars, WUKPG, Arrowsmith Investments, The Derwent Group, Fletcher Bond, the University of Manchester and the NHS.
RECOM already has places on frameworks with the University of Manchester, NHS Shared Business Services and Fusion21.
RECOM’s roles on these frameworks involve project management, passive fire protection, facilities management, main contracting and building safety and compliance work.
