Hertfordshire County Council

We work to ensure that our property, along-side the council’s other resources, is used in the most effective and efficient way to meet the fundamental aim of the county council - to provide the best possible services to the people of Hertfordshire.

We own or lease around 2,000 property assets. These help us to deliver services as diverse as schools, libraries, fire stations, waste management sites and buildings for the provision of adult and children’s services.

Our rural estate covers around 10,800 acres of Hertfordshire, and provides rural business opportunities and jobs. As well as the financial benefits, our rural estates have created new woodlands, improved access to the countryside and helped wildlife to thrive.

Framework Agreement Arrangements

Hertfordshire County Council has successfully re-procured 2 new Property Framework Agreements which start on 1st April 2015.  They will provide the Authority, and a number of other local public sector bodies including schools, with access to a wide range of property maintenance, management and construction services.

The 2 new Frameworks were re-procured through an Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) process and consist of:

  • Property Works Framework– repairs, adaptations, refurbishments, extensions, asbestos removal, demolition, and supply and installation of portable buildings.
  • Property Consultancy Framework– property, estates and specialist consultancy and construction related design and project management.

Suppliers who were successful in the re-procurement of the new Property Frameworks are arranged into Lots.  To view a list of the suppliers on each Lot please see Consultants and Works.

There are no guaranteed volumes or values of works attached to the Framework Agreements, and the authorities named as users of the frameworks have no obligation to use it.
