Bellrock awarded place on CCS Estate Management Services framework

Bellrock Property & Facilities Management has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s Estate Management Services (EMS) framework.

The EMS framework, organised by Crown Commercial Service (CCS), is available to all UK public sector bodies offering a broad range of suppliers that have successfully demonstrated capacity, capability, and expertise in their respective lots. This allows government bodies to easily access services from a range of suppliers who have already gone through a CCS procurement process to assess quality and price.

With substantial experience in managing complex and sophisticated estates underpinned by its technology platform Concerto, Bellrock will deliver Strategic Service Integrator solutions within the EMS framework Lot 7 – Integrated Workplace Management:

  • System: support operational and strategic Workplace Management as configured to the Buyer’s requirements and shall provide the required IT systems, application hosting, implementation, training, support and security for the management of the Services.
  • Help desk: the supplier shall provide a Helpdesk facility, which shall be the single point of contact for all Service Users in relation to all Workplace, Property and FM related Service requests
  • Performance management, analysis and reporting: the supplier shall have the capability to provide a comprehensive and flexible reporting solution to cover the functional, operational and strategic aspects.
  • Innovation, technology and data

The Strategic Service Integrator (SSI) is a delivery vehicle that provides complex and sophisticated government bodies with a flexible plug and play way to deliver property and FM services. The SSI recognises government bodies will have varying levels of estate maturity for which traditional FM delivery models don’t recognise. The model provides a mechanism to move up the maturity curve, enabling advancement to a fully optimised estate over time.

David Smith, CEO, said: “Being awarded a place on the new CCS framework provides us with a platform to share our Strategic Service Integrator with government bodies across the UK, providing them with data and insight to make fully informed decisions. Our experience and relationships with over 120 government organisations means that we are well positioned to provide solutions to meet the current and future challenges of government estate directors.

“Our SSI model has become increasingly attractive to our customers due to it’s flexibility and control it provides them, incorporating the right blend of sub contacted and self-delivered services to provide the most efficient workflows in order to drive efficiency to reduce cost and risk.”

Bellrock currently manages over £1.3 billion of FM spend for 1,000+ customers across the UK.

Six steps to facilities management in the post-pandemic world

As workplaces open up and restrictions lift the role of the FM has become more important than ever.

The challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic are now providing a valuable opportunity for FMs to demonstrate their skills and adaptability. Whilst on a practical level FMs are responsible for making buildings safe and comfortable, they are also crucial in attracting people back to the office.

In speaking with industry leaders, it is clear that there are six key areas of focus. Zip has published a white paper which looks at each one, suggesting ways that facilities managers can tackle the complexities and pace of a return to the workplace, whilst demonstrating clear and effective leadership along the way.
