Clancy secures appointment to Pagabo national framework


Clancy has successfully been appointed to Pagabo’s national civils and infrastructure framework – positioning the business to further support the delivery of capital investment in green energy, non-renewable energy and water projects across the UK.

We are pleased to have secured a place in all regions that we tendered for across Scotland, London and the south-east of England.

Projects procured through the framework will range in value from £500,000 to over £30 million over the four lots, with an estimated total spend of £1.6 billion over the framework’s four-year duration.

The appointments enable us to deploy our expertise in civil engineering – building on landmark capital projects in energy such as our work with UK Power Networks in Leicester Square, where we are delivering a major substation upgrade to replace three 123kv, 100-tonne transformers in the heart of the West End.

Similarly, the framework will bring new opportunities to showcase our experience in water and wastewater programmes as clients upgrade and build resilience in their networks.

A key strategic objective for the framework is to ensure that the projects procured are working to tackle the climate crisis, through driving net zero targets and building resilience to increased flooding, reflecting infrastructure’s critical role in the UK’s environmental ambitions.

Having recently signed up to the National Social Value Measurement Framework, an essential aspect of which is around supporting the environment and communities, the new partnership with Pagabo will also allow us to further demonstrate the positive impact our work has on communities across the UK.

Ronan Clancy, executive director at Clancy, said: “Our appointment to the framework offers us a brilliant opportunity to build on our extensive expertise in civils work across the UK to help meet the needs of modern and robust water and energy networks while tackling the climate crisis and improving resilience against its effects.

“We’re looking forward to further expanding our work in Scotland, London and the south-east. Our direct-employment model – with our 2,300 highly-trained workers – puts us in an excellent position to leverage local skills and deliver smarter, greener infrastructure as part of this framework.”

Jason Stapley, managing director at Pagabo, said: “We’re really pleased to see our new civils and infrastructure framework go live with a range of excellent suppliers, especially after such great interest and demand from the market. The framework, which is the first that Queen Elizabeth Facilities Ltd will be acting as the contracting authority for, will provide clients with that all-important confidence in the suppliers they choose for their projects.

“Providing the vehicle for compliant procurement of built environment works means that we have a big responsibility when it comes to helping meet the ambitious net zero targets set out by government. We are committed to working with public sector bodies to achieve this through consideration of emerging technologies and project controls, while connecting clients with the right suppliers.

“Whether it is tackling the impacts of the climate emergency through flood alleviation projects or working towards net zero targets through using alternative fuels or development of greener travel infrastructure, this framework offering will make sure that the projects procured through it over the coming years are working towards tackling the climate crisis.”
