Pagabo has revealed every supplier appointed to the second iteration of its Refit and Refurbishment Framework, 68% of which are SMEs.   

New suppliers include Sisk, Stepnell, and Tilbury Douglas, with Overbury, Morris & Spottiswood, and Lindum making a return. 

The framework’s total value has now increased to “meet the demand from our ever-growing national client base” across all major sectors, said Pagabo.  

The number of suppliers has also increased to provide “fair access for organisations of any size”. 

“This dedication is to provide ample choice for clients, and to ensure the generation of maximum positive social impact for communities in which schemes will be delivered,” Pagabo added. 

Firms have been appointed across regional sublots, which sit under the following five main value-based lots:  

  • Lot 1 – £50,000 to £500,000 
  • Lot 2 – £500,000 to £1 million 
  • Lot 3 – £1 million to £5 million  
  • Lot 4 – £5 million to £15 million  
  • Lot 5 – £15 million+ 

Social value 

To ensure social value, all suppliers and clients will access Loop consultancy’s social value calculation tool for Pagabo procured works.

“With the focus on meeting net zero targets, many clients are becoming increasingly aware of the role refit and refurbishment will have on emissions across their assets and estates,” said Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo and parent organisation The 55 Group. “It’s why it was so important to us to work with existing client organisations, specialists and the contracting authority to make sure this second-generation framework was absolutely fit for purpose.” 

Adding: “The big increase in suppliers is down to a higher level of SME appointment than the original framework – something we’re dedicated to increasing all the time. We know that locality breeds the best social value possible, with SMEs and microbusinesses being absolutely central to this.  

“We’re very much looking forward to seeing the first procurements come through the framework, and to see the difference all these suppliers will be able to make for clients and communities around the UK.” 

The contracting authority is Red Kite Learning Trust (RKLT), continuing from the original framework.
