First off-site social housing framework launchedBeat The Cowboy Builder
Public sector procurement consortium LHC is on the hunt for firms involved in the design, manufacture, supply and erection of offsite building systems for social housing.
The group aims to launch later this year a New Homes framework of key off-site homes suppliers for housing association and council clients.
The framework will be available via two work streams, one for volumetric build and the other for panelised systems.
This will provide customers with choices that consider the flexibility of design, transportation, site access, projects in planning and integration with existing build programmes.
The framework will be available through eight lots across England, Wales and Scotland reflecting expected social housing building volumes.
The tender will be weighted 70% on quality and 30% price and will consider project management, product quality and compliance with relevant funding bodies and technical regulation. The framework is not material specific.
John Skivington, director of LHC, said: “We are very excited about this new framework opportunity which will significantly increase our portfolio for social housing landlords.
“We believe that with our experience in the social housing construction sector, we will be able to attract companies who can offer social landlords high quality best value options for quick and efficient housing constructing.”
