Appointing PBA

Appointing PBA

For many of our clients, we're appointed under PBA's standard terms and conditions. A copy of these terms can be made available on request. We're also very happy to discuss bespoke terms and conditions to meet particular client requirements.

For clients in the public and regulated sectors, we can be appointed through a variety of framework contracts. The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) Framework is a particularly useful and convenient way for public sector organisations to secure PBA's services.

HCA Framework

PBA was appointed to the HCA multidisciplinary panel as a lead consultant from 2014–2018. Appointing us through the HCA helps the public sector save time and money on projects, including major development, due diligence, estate renewal and refurbishment.

“In the run-up to the new financial year and with an election looming, the City of London Corporation required a Professional Services team to support the delivery of a politically vital project at short notice. The framework gave us access to suitably qualified suppliers; the flexibility to move quickly with challenging deadlines and enabled us to exceed stakeholder expectations”. Toni Peters, City of London Corporation

He has full authority to act on behalf of PBA for all purposes in connection with the multi-disciplinary contract and the Agency shall be entitled to rely on such authority for all purposes.
