What we do

Public Sector

Understanding your organisation with accredited public sector property services.

We are an independently owned SME offering integrated property services across the UK.

As an appointed Crown Commercial Service supplier, our understanding of the public sector and experience in the property industry, allows us to develop specialist property solutions with organisations across the UK, including central and local government, social housing and education.

Our public sector property services are tailored to the requirements of modern government, drawing from our commercial experience across all sectors. We invest in training, quality assurance and technology, giving you the security that you’ll receive high quality advice. Whilst we’re a national firm, we’re small enough to provide partner led service, build long term relationships and promote knowledge transfer.

Our services go beyond pure financial return. We aim to provide strategic advice to improve utilisation of built assets and deliver programmes to reduce operating costs through smaller footprints, economies of scale and shared use of assets. 

Crown Commercial Service Framework

Sanderson Weatherall are a Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework supplier, providing services to public sector clients through the Estates Professional Services (RM3816) Framework which replaces the former Estates Professional Services (RM928) Framework.

The Crown Commercial Service brings together policy, advice and direct buying; providing commercial services to the public sector and saving money for the taxpayer.

After a competitive tender process we were granted status as an accredited supplier on the National Estates Professional Services Framework, which offers public sector organisations a ‘one stop shop’ solution for all professional property related needs at the right cost.

Regional Agent Partnership

As a crown commercial supplier we are also the lead contractor within the Regional Agent Partnership (RAP).

RAP is comprised of six award winning practices of chartered surveyors with 30 offices across the UK. Our multi-faceted offering and unrivalled market track record combine to provide innovative and effective estates solutions for today’s public sector environment.

How to appoint us?

All public sector organisations, registered charities and quasi-public sector body are able to utilise the professional property expertise available through the framework.

First step is to ensure that your project comes under the Estates Professional Services Framework, you can do this by viewing the scope of services table for the RM3816 framework here. (Insert doc)
