Professional Services Framework 2020
We are on major local frameworks such as Manchester City Council CAPPS and national Frameworks such as NHS Shared Business Services for Lot 4 – QS, Lot 6 – PD, Lot 7 – Building Surveying and Lot 8 – H&S Services. We have also just won a place on the PAGABO Framework for Professional Services in Lot 16, H&S Advisor incl. Principal Designer.
These significant wins make our Clients’ procurement processes so much easier as they are market tested, compliant procurement routes for Public Sector bodies and are free for the Client to use – both PAGABO and NHS SBS have very simple ‘Direct Award’ processes.
We are currently PD on the £95 Million “Factory” arts building for MCC, the remediation works at the Royal Liverpool Hospital following the collapse of Carillion and have been appointed Principal Designer Advisor and CDM Advisor on the £66m+ film/tv studio development ‘Made in Dagenham’, working alongside PRP Architects and Barking & Dagenham Council. We are also on a multi-year PD / CDMA Contract with Your Housing Group, one of the largest UK Housing Providers with over 28,000 properties on their portfolio. We are PDA and Principal Contractor Advisor (PCA) for the German installer of the £30 million Proton Beam treatment in London having already been CDMA, PD and PCA for the Proton Beam installation at the Christies.

Through our strong partnering relationships with Award Winning Architectural Practices such as Rafael Vinoly and Ellis Williams, we are also working on projects for Manchester City Football Club and City Football Academy, Odeon Cinemas & REEL Cinemas, the University of Liverpool and Wrexham County Borough Council to name just a few.
Our QS’s are dealing with the £26m Old College Refurbishment at the University of Aberystwyth, the £4 million Assembly Rooms in Tamworth and a £3.8m new-build school in Cricieth for Gwynedd Council amongst many other projects. KOK now currently hold six Measured Term Contract’s (MTC) having recently won the MTC at iFM Bolton / Bolton NHS Foundation Trust (for both QS and PD). We have also recently been appointed as Quantity Surveyors on the 4-year Construction Consultancy Framework for University of Manchester and are getting started on our first two projects.
