Network Homes has announced a new Employer’s Agent and Contractor framework to help deliver its £500 million development programme.
A pool of 22 Contractors and 14 Employer’s Agents were selected after a rigorous process based on experience, competency, resources and their commercial offer. The new framework will help Network Homes to achieve its strategic aim of building 1,000 new homes a year.
The framework comprises both small and large firms to reflect the needs of Network Homes’ new build projects.
The framework will run for the next four years (until the end of 2020) and means each of the pre-approved firms can now be appointed by Network Homes to contracts reducing time and improving cost efficiency.
Vicky Savage, Executive Director of Development said: “Network Homes has secured some of the best firms in the sector to help deliver our ambitious development programme and I am looking forward to working with them over the coming months and years to complete a variety of projects. I am confident the firms will work closely with us to produce award winning developments which our customers will feel proud to live in.”
Network Homes currently manages 20,000 homes in 36 local authorities across London, Hertfordshire and the South East and is one of seven organisations with ‘trusted partner’ status for development from the Government’s Home and Communities Agency.
