HEXA secures first national framework appointment with Pagabo

HEXA secures first national framework appointment with Pagabo

One of the UK’s fastest growing engineering consultancies – Hexa Consulting - has secured its first major framework appointment, being named one of the successful suppliers on Pagabo’s Professional Services framework for the UK.

Hexa has been named a supplier for Lot 2 of the framework, covering civil and structural engineering, across all five of the geographical regions it bid for. The £780m framework launches in April and will run for four years, affording public sector clients access to construction consultancy services.

Hexa’s team already boasts a strong portfolio of work, including residential build-to-rent schemes like Kent Street Baths in Birmingham, and Redcliff Quarter in Bristol, both of which are worth circa £70m, and leisure projects like Bedworth Physical Activity Hub.

Mark Jones, director at Hexa, said:

“Pagabo is one of the market-leading framework providers, and as such we know the level of competition to be appointed is incredibly high, so we’re over the moon with this appointment. It’s especially rewarding when considering the business was founded at the same time as the previous iteration of the framework went live in 2020, which serves as a reminder of just how far we’ve come as a business in a relatively short time.

“We’re all about doing things better and engineering opportunity at Hexa, and this appointment will certainly expand that opportunity further. It will also allow us to continue delivering the outcomes that improve lives and communities, aligning our own values of generating social value and carbon reductions firmly with Pagabo.

“Along with our recent expansion, this continues an incredibly strong start to 2024 for Hexa, and we are looking forward to what the next chapter brings along for us, and to working closely with Pagabo into the future.”

Since its inception in 2020, Hexa has been one of the construction industry’s biggest success stories, growing to more than 20 experts in its first year alone. The now 50-strong team continues a people-focused approach to growth and has opened a second office in central Leeds. Most recently, the team announced the launch of its ‘Hexa Land’ offering, which focuses on ground engineering and helping clients solve complex environmental challenges related to brownfield sites. 

Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said:

“Professional services is our most popular framework offering so we were expecting a high level of quality bids for the new iteration – and we were not wrong. Now on its third instalment, this framework goes from strength to strength – continually demonstrating quick, simple and effective procurement possibility.

“There is a perfect blend of continuation from the previous iteration alongside changes that address the needs of clients and suppliers. As a result, the opportunities offered to suppliers are very valuable and clients are provided with easy access to the best selection of organisations in the consultancy industry.

“Small and medium-sized enterprises make up 79% of the supplier list. We’re very proud to be pushing SMEs to the forefront of ethical procurement, providing the public sector with the compliant access to the best suppliers across the market. There was a high level of competition for this framework, so our congratulations are extended to the suppliers and we look forward to working closely with them over the framework’s lifespan.”
