AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced that its Perfect Circle joint venture with Pick Everard and Gleeds has been appointed to two new consultancy frameworks for SCAPE, the United Kingdom’s leading public sector procurement authority. The frameworks, with a combined value of up to £1.25 billion, will see the joint venture deliver professional services for the utilities sector across the UK.

“We’re proud to continue our collaboration with SCAPE alongside our Perfect Circle partners, and look forward to applying our multidisciplinary capabilities and track record on key utilities to benefit communities across the UK,” said Frank Sweet, chief executive of AECOM’s Environment business. “These new frameworks extend our role as a key enabler of the UK’s water sector growth and ongoing energy transition, allowing our teams to build resilience across the utilities infrastructure pivotal to a sustainable future.”

Perfect Circle has been appointed to SCAPE’s £750 million direct award framework for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and its £500 million dedicated framework for Scotland. The frameworks will run for a period of four years, with an option to extend for a further two years. Both frameworks are intended to deliver solutions and services across a range of utility sectors, including water, renewables, energy, rail and metro, aviation, ports and harbors, and telecommunications.

Clients, which include utility sector organizations across the UK, will have access to the joint venture’s suite of professional services, including strategic advice, engineering services, design services, project management and quantity surveying.

“With these new frameworks, our teams continue to expand their role in delivering the UK’s ambitious grid and utilities infrastructure modernization objectives,” said Colin Wood, chief executive of AECOM’s Europe and India region. “Our regional experts have a long history of collaboration with the UK public sector, and their ever-evolving skillset across the key pillars of the energy transition is deepening those partnerships.”

“Our Perfect Circle partnership has consistently delivered value to public sector organizations across the United Kingdom for more than six years,” said Richard Whitehead, chief executive of AECOM’s global Buildings + Places business. “Our Buildings + Places teams will build upon this success by leveraging the experience of our partners and AECOM’s integrated, cross-business line expertise in renewables, grid modernization and other critical framework services.”“We’re proud to continue our collaboration with SCAPE alongside our Perfect Circle partners, and look forward to applying our multidisciplinary capabilities and track record on key utilities to benefit communities across the UK,” said Frank Sweet, chief executive of AECOM’s Environment business. “These new frameworks extend our role as a key enabler of the UK’s water sector growth and ongoing energy transition, allowing our teams to build resilience across the utilities infrastructure pivotal to a sustainable future.”
