Sheffield Delivery Partner framework for 2021-2025

The framework, going live from mid-July, consists of a single source delivery model delivered by RLB UK supported by supply chain partners Arup, HLM Architects, Whittam Cox Architects and other consultants across the region. Put in place to support Sheffield City Council’s Capital Delivery Service, the framework will help manage the Council’s growing pipeline of projects. This forms part of the city-wide investment programmes designed to create a stronger, greener, fairer Sheffield for all.

Councillor Terry Fox, Leader of Sheffield City Council said: “Sheffield City Council has ambitious build plans in place to continue to regenerate our city. In appointing our new single source delivery partner to support us, it was vital we found teams that are not only global experts and innovators but also have a real passion for Sheffield. RLB UK supported by Arup, HLM Architects and Whittam Cox Architects are bringing exactly those values to the framework and we are really looking forward to working with them.”

Matt Summerhill, Delivery Framework Manager and Managing Partner for RLB UK Yorkshire and Humber said: “At RLB we are incredibly proud to have been appointed by Sheffield City Council to support them on the next phase of their regeneration of the city. Having had an office in the city for over 50 years, we understand the importance of being a positive influence on our local communities. The opportunity to support a city that our staff live and work in, is a huge privilege”

Delia Harmston, Sheffield Studio Director for HLM Architects, said: “We are incredibly proud to be working in partnership with Sheffield City Council, RLB and the team on the next phase of regenerating Sheffield. Our staff live and breathe this city, their children go to the schools, we go to the theatres, we use the sports and music venues. As designers we relish working in the city and making a difference on our doorstep.”

Derek Roberts, Arup Sheffield Office Leader, said: “We are really pleased to have been selected as part of the successful delivery partnership alongside RLB, HLM Architects and Whittam Cox Architects. We look forward to building on our long-term relationship with Sheffield City Council during this exciting time, as we push forward delivering the 2030 Pathways to Zero Carbon plan we developed jointly with the Council.”

Nick Riley, Board Director, Whittam Cox Architects, said: “Environment and Social Governance (ESG) is positively influencing so much now in terms of change, actions, and decisions. This successful framework appointment with Sheffield City Council is hugely significant for us and aligns exceptionally well with all ESG principles. Building on our extensive work in Sheffield over recent years, we feel privileged and delighted to be collaborating locally with RLB, HLM Architects, Arup and other partners; all of which we know well. We are committed to delivering a tangible and positive impact; both in our work and wider contributions to Sheffield.”

The framework runs from July 2021 to June 2025 and covers every service within the build life cycle from principal design through to project management, sustainability services and civil engineering, with a focus on supporting Sheffield City Council’s journey to Net Carbon Zero. The first projects to go live include supporting on the successful Towns Fund investment for Stocksbridge; supporting the development of the Sustainable Transport plan for the city and enhancements to residential tower blocks and the Town Hall.
