Dooley Associates Appointed to National Frameworks as it Celebrates 15 Years in Business

By 23rd April 2018Client News

Dooley Associates has secured a place on two influential procurement frameworks this month, the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Register of Support Services (HLF RSS) and the National Health Service’s Share Business Services (NHS SBS) both for a duration of four years.

Dooley Associates’ place on the NHS’s SBS Framework means that it can be called on to provide quantity surveying, project management and principal designer roles on projects up to £10m in the North West, West Midlands and London areas. The new framework comes into operation in May 2018.

The HLF RSS’s Strategic Funding Framework launches this month and will operate for a period of five years. The new framework will be UK wide and will have fewer consultants registered than in previous years to ensure a better return on investment for HLF and support decision making and delivery of the projects that it funds through its grant process. Consultant appointments will be relative to the nature of the risk for the HLF of a particular project.

Dooley Associates was established in 2003 by Brendan Dooley and is based in Manchester at offices at No.1 St Ann Street in the city centre with additional offices in Birmingham and London.

Current and recent clients include Manchester Cathedral where it project managed a number of complex heritage projects; a £12.5m veteran’s care village for Broughton House in Salford, working with Craigleith and EasyHotels on a 109 bed Chester hotel development, with the Shangri-La Hotel in London and recent appointments by The Derwent Group.

Commenting on the framework appointments, Brendan Dooley, Managing Director at Dooley Associates said;

“Dooley Associates has extremely strong client relationships in the private sector but has found than its services are desirable to the public sector due to our strong operational reporting and value-driven delivery approach.

“As we hit our 15 year anniversary this year, it’s testament to our strong growth over recent years that we’ve been successful in achieving a place on these two important frameworks having worked with both the NHS and the HLF on individual projects in the past.

“We’re looking forward to more formally addressing winning work from these important clients as we continue to expand and grow in the coming years.”

Dooley Associates works across all sectors (industrial, mixed-use, residential, retail / leisure, commercial, education, health, heritage), has particular experience in the hotel sector where it has operated in Prague and Russia during its evolution and is currently on a three year expansion plan.
