Salisbury Selected for £12bn Framework

Salisbury Group announces today that it has been appointed to the UK government’s new RM3830 Facilities Management (FM) Marketplace Framework Contract. In a competitive tender led by the Crown Commercial Service, Salisbury Workplace Services – part of the wider Salisbury Group – was awarded a place on both lots 1b and 1c. This means that it will be able to tender for the largest national FM contracts with total values of at least £7 million.
With over five years of direct service delivery to a range of government departments and non-departmental bodies, Salisbury Group will seek to leverage its strong track record and service capabilities to win additional contracts in a new era of public sector FM contracting. Tender opportunities through the new framework are expected to commence this year.
Ed Swales, CEO of Salisbury Group, said: “We thank the Crown Commercial Service for appointing us to our preferred choices of the two largest lots. Salisbury Group has long-standing contracts to provide services to government departments across the UK. This has enabled us to develop in-depth experience and knowledge of working in partnership with the public sector. We have the national scale and capabilities to support further government bodies through the framework. We look forward to working with the Crown Commercial Service to deliver high quality services at outstanding value for the British public.

3D Repo Drives Adoption of BIM by Joining the UK BIM Alliance

3D Repo is helping to promote the adoption of next generation Building Information Modelling best practice by joining the UK BIM Alliance. Through patronage of the Alliance, 3D Repo will help transform the construction industry as it transitions to a digital era. 3D Repo will also be a key player in the Alliance’s Technology Group; which promotes discussion, agreement and adoption of interoperability and Open BIM standards in the UK and Ireland in conjunction with the Alliance’s Standards Group; which in turn helps to raise and support the Alliance’s drive to digitally transform the Built Environment.
“We are delighted to welcome 3D Repo to the Alliance,” commented Dr Anne Kemp, Chair of the UK BIM Alliance. “As a well-known technology innovator, 3D Repo brings specialist knowledge combined with valuable practical understanding that while 3D BIM is a powerful catalyst for change, there are legacy issues that can potentially frustrate modernisation and digital transformation.”
3D Repo is the multi award-wining company behind the cloud based BIM platform that allows users to access, via the web, the latest 3D models and make real time changes and informed decisions. Often described as an online knowledge base, the 3D Repo platform is different from other collaboration tools as it uses a component-based database – meaning that information is live, useful and accessible throughout the entire project lifecycle.
Dr Jozef Dobos, CEO of 3D Repo, added, “Building Information Modelling represents a major transformation in the way the construction industry works, and the benefits are immense. However we need to work together to accelerate change that is crucial for the evolution of construction. The UK BIM Alliance plays a key role in communicating the benefits of technology to maximise its potential as the industry continues to adopt and adapt.”
The UK BIM Alliance was launched in October 2016 to unite the construction industry around the BIM agenda. In an industry of over 4 million people, where 95 per cent work in SME’s, the UK BIM Alliance leads, facilitates and focuses a broader proposition of a digital formation of the built environment. The UK BIM Alliance, which is also the buildingSMART UK and Ireland chapter, is also building a strong relationship with the Centre for Digital Built Britain around BIM Level 2 and 3 agendas along with the various standards groups such as CEN, BSI.
The Technology Group which 3D Repo joins is a special interest group within the Alliance. The group aims to be the link between the Alliance and technology vendors in the UK, provide a forum for discussion, agreement and adoption of interoperability and Open BIM standards and act as specialist advisor and ‘part of the solution’.
