BAM FM lands place on NHS shared business services framework agreement

BAM FM has been appointed by NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS), to its Hard Facilities Management framework agreement.

BAM was awarded a place for eight main lots, and places on 23 sub lots. The company’s healthcare credentials were also recently recognised by its appointment to the P22 healthcare framework for capital projects.

NHS SBS’s second iteration of this framework is designed to respond to the need within the NHS for high-quality, innovative and cost-effective solutions, which help NHS trusts manage their estates successfully.

During the pandemic, BAM both built and ran services for the NHS at Exeter Nightingale Hospital and NHS Nightingale Yorkshire and the Humber, integrating construction and FM.

The new framework’s scope has broadened to encompass Covid-19 safety provisions and includes a specific emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Maintaining a safe environment in healthcare settings – from infection control, through to the maintenance and upkeep of medical facilities and equipment – has a direct bearing on patient safety and care, the wellbeing of the NHS workforce, and that of the wider public.

NHS SBS’s framework can provide up to 10 per cent savings for Estate, Facilities and Capital Development teams that buy services through it. With £800 million expected spend via the framework over the next four years, it could potentially equate to public sector savings of up to £80 million.

Louise Williamson, BAM FM’s Managing Director, said: “BAM is already identifying cost savings in NHS facilities through the way we collect and use data and track energy patterns and consumption.

“Our understanding of the NHS estate’s needs are based on a whole-life approach to its assets, taking into account how buildings perform in use.

“Alongside our energy consultancy, our understanding of sustainability means we know how to achieve net zero carbon. We can analyse, plan and programme estate and building assets to run more cost effectively, smarter and cleaner. We have the knowledge and tools to help our friends in the NHS by supporting them to focus on what they do best.”

Brendan Griffin-Ryan, NHS SBS Senior Category Manager – Estates & Facilities, commented: “The management of NHS estates and facilities demands specialist expertise in areas such as strategic planning alongside comprehensive knowledge of the estate’s condition. Compliance, with an ever-increasing list of regulations, places further pressure on teams managing these vital services. This framework is designed to support estate managers meet these targets and provide a compliant route for reactive, planned and new installations of equipment and infrastructure.

“With an approach heavily focused on sustainability, NHS SBS’s new framework agreement ensures broader ethical environmental objectives are considered and met, tying into the strategies and ambitions detailed in NHS England’s ‘Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service’ plan.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has presented new safety and infection control challenges and led to healthcare providers having to significantly adapt to ensure they can maintain Covid-safe environments. Hence the framework’s inclusion of a range of supplier services and innovative solutions, such as touch-free entrance technology, to support the new Covid-safety requirements.”
