Improvements and efficiencies
The £3.5 billion Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise (iESE) framework offers an opportunity to deliver capital projects in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. Working with iESE we have helped to deliver over 40 projects across the South East and London, providing essential public services and forging long-term relationships with public sector bodies and communities.
From police buildings such as Hendon’s new facility for the Metropolitan Police to educational facilities such as Teddington School, from arts and cultural landmarks such as the recently completed Lyric Theatre to the new Bexley Civic Centre and the iconic Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, we have helped to leave a positive legacy not just now, but into the future.
“Alperton Deployment Base is a professional environment for our staff to work in, it’s a great purpose-built space and an excellent example of how Mace, working with the Metropolitan Police, are improving the estate”
Setting a framework
We were appointed as one of ten contractors when the framework first launched in 2006, but quickly added project management services to our role in close collaboration with Hampshire County Council. In 2011, we were reappointed to deliver projects in the education, healthcare, public and police sectors.
One of the benefits of the framework is the rich variety of the projects involved but the one constant has been our service, providing expert, hands on, proactive advice that exceeds expectations. From small refurbishment to complex construction, we have shared best practice to drive performance forward collaboratively.
Open, collaborative and accessible
Our work with iESE has ensured efficiencies, mitigated risks, maximised productivity and controlled costs. We work right from preconstruction stage, utilising this early involvement to deliver results faster, offer best value, address sustainability and engage with the community. We have learned the importance of an open, collaborative and accessible service which benefits public spending and gives a compelling reason to use the framework.
“I am clear that we could not have achieved so much without the support provided by Mace, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team, for your personal commitment in the delivery of our capital investment programme and particularly in resolving the challenges in the build of the Custody Centre at Wandsworth. The working relationship between our teams have never been more important. The professional expertise and services provided by your team supporting the Property Services Department and the Metropolitan Police continues to be vital. Working with you we have had much success over the last 12 months and I am confident this will continue”
