Contractors are being called up to help shape a new £1.5 billion build housing framework that is set to launch later in 2021.
The New Build Housing Construction (H2) framework from procurement bodies LHC, Consortium Procurement Construction (CPC) and Scottish Procurement Alliance will cover public sector projects in Scotland, North and Central England, and London and South East England.
It is set to replace the current framework, which is available from the SPA at the moment, and will be a new offering for both LHS and CPC.
Associated civil engineering and infrastructure works required for new build housing and net zero buildings will also be covered under the set up.
Planned Housing Lots:
- New build housing – low rise up to 11m to top floor height
- High rise developments with floor heights above 11m
- Construction of care homes
- Refurbishment, conversions, extensions and adaptations
- Groundworks and preparation for new build sites
- Major infrastructure for new build housing sites
Mij Rahman, Director of Procurement at LHC, said: “The new H2 framework will build on the success of the outgoing H1 framework.
“There is a growing demand for frameworks that deliver solutions which will meet the ongoing housing challenges within the public sector, while prioritising the importance of the wider societal benefits that can be achieved through placemaking that support social, human, environmental and production value.”
LHC, CPC and SPA will be delivering a series of webinars in February (8th, 9th and 11th) for interested developers and contractors.
The sessions will give an overview of the proposed framework and will give interested parties the opportunity to feedback on the framework before its scope and structure are finalised.
