We are pleased to have been appointed as Principal Designer Advisor by Griffen Developments on the demolition of the Deltic Avenue office building. The demolition of the existing building will make way for a new larger unit on the site and will be to a similar standard of the other units developed by Griffen. It is great to continue to support Griffen Developments on this and other future industrial projects.
NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) has launched its new Construction Consultancy Framework and Construction (Design and Management) safety specialists Safer Sphere have been appointed as one of the successful Consultants on the framework.
The framework is open to both the NHS and the wider public sector and allows them to access a variety of services from Civil Engineering to Principal Designer Advisors.
The 4-year framework is expected to save the public sector around £16 million and supplies the clients with a fully compliant route for public sector purchasing, as they will gain access to construction consultancy services that have already undergone a thorough procurement process.
The new framework replaces the older framework that was awarded in 2014 and has saved the public sector in excess of £12 million. Last year, more than 300 organisations purchased construction consultancy services via the NHS SBS framework, with almost two-thirds (66%) being non-NHS organisations.
Mike Forsyth, Managing Director, Safer Sphere said “We are delighted to have been appointed alongside other great industry professionals on this framework. We have been fortunate enough to work alongside various NHS Trusts and local authorities, and this framework opens up even more opportunities to work alongside both current and new clients.”
The framework is now active and has over 100 core members and over 800 associate members ranging from housing associations to NHS Trusts across the UK.

We are pleased to announce that Safer Sphere is expanding and has signed up to a brand new office at Princes Dock in Liverpool. The move comes off the back of the multiple projects and clients that are based in the area and shows the businesses on-going commitment to the city.
The new office will be open from May, and Safer Sphere will share the 3,519 sq ft first floor at 8 Princes Dock with Walker Sime and Planit-ie. The Princess Dock office is a modern five-storey Grade ‘A’ office building complete with a newly remodelled and refurbished double height entrance and reception area, located on the Liverpool Waterfront.
Mike Forsyth, Managing Director, Safer Sphere said “Liverpool has proved itself a real success story as a city, and there is a hive of development in the city. It is important for us to be able to deliver our services to a high standard and as such having a local presence in the area will play a key part in that. The new office along with our ongoing investment in our services and team will allow us to continue with our growth plans. We hope to continue working closely with our Liverpool clients as well and building new relationships with local businesses.”
Safer Sphere will join other prestigious businesses on the Liverpool Waterfront including KPMG, Malmaison, Saville’s and Bibby to name just a few. The Liverpool office will act as an additional office and presence in the heart of Liverpool, and Safer Sphere’s head office will remain in St Helens.
