An architecture and construction consultancy could be in line for a series of public sector projects after securing a place on two Government shortlists.

Ingleton Wood, which has offices in Colchester, Norwich, Cambridge, Billericay, Hertford and London, has been selected for the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) regional lots for East Anglia and London & South East as part of a consortium led by healthcare infrastructure consultancy Essentia Trading.

The CCS is an executive agency of the Cabinet Office which helps the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring goods and services.

The Essentia consortium is the only bidder to make both the East Anglia and London & South East regional lists. As part of the consortium, Ingleton Wood may be called upon to provide strategic advice to help bodies reduce property costs, identify savings and generate income from land and buildings.

Stuart Norgett, partner at Ingleton Wood, said: “The CCS framework is hotly contested with limited places for suppliers, so we’re naturally delighted to be part of it.

“We have worked with Essentia in the past and we’re looking forward to that relationship continuing. It’s a huge honour to be part of such a significant framework and demonstrates our capacity and expertise within the public sector.”

Stephen Edgar, property consultancy director at Essentia, added: “We’re delighted to have been awarded a place on this prestigious framework, to deliver innovative property expertise to the public sector in London, the South East and East Anglia. Given the vast public-sector estate in these areas, we are fully aware of how competitive this framework is.”
