Supporting Organisations

Your project benefits from the shared expertise of respected organisations

As a collaborative organisation, we never work alone. We are supported by a host of high profile, well respected organisations who share their specific expertise with empa. This valuable participation enables us to continually improve our services in areas which are key to successful property and construction programmes, and to the issues which are important to the public sector.

empa is one of nine regions in England which deliver construction services for the public sector. Every year these frameworks successfully deliver over £500m of public sector construction services between them. To maximise all the knowledge gained, the main procurement hubs have come together to share best practice and compare benchmarking information so the wider public sector can have confidence their investments are being spent wisely. This group is the National Association of Construction Frameworks which meets regularly to review information which is then disseminated to all their users. empaii is a founding member of the Association.

empa is also a member of the LGA Construction Strategy and Procurement Group. This provides best practice advise to Local Authorities on the best way to procure and deliver their projects. It also helps those organisations who are trying to move from traditional tendering into more modern methods of project delivery.
