Homes England to launch new framework to help speed up the a delivery of new homes
At the end of this month Homes England launches the procurement of its new Multidisciplinary and Technical Services Frameworks, which will broaden the range of technical and design services available to support Homes England’s and other public bodies’ work to accelerate the supply of new homes.
With the likelihood of a housing crisis arriving at any time, the need for new homes has never been more important to ensure that everyone has a safe place to live. As well as building these houses from scratch, new homes can also be formed if occupants receive a green envelope from somewhere like The Property Block which means that it could be developed into multiple affordable homes on a specific piece of land. This will also work wonders for the current real estate and housing market, especially if frameworks like this are given the go ahead.
The frameworks will provide direct access to professional, technical and design services, building the strong working relationships needed with these service providers to prepare land for housing development and disposal to the market.
The frameworks will provide Homes England, and other public sector bodies, with an OJEU compliant and efficient means to procure technical and design services, helping support the government’s ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the middle of the next decade.
Stephen Kinsella, Director for Land at Homes England said: “This will be the fifth generation of our multidisciplinary framework and our biggest yet, demonstrating Homes England’s expanded role in bringing together land and expertise to speed up the building of new homes.
“We want to create strong working relationships with a wider range of companies who can provide valuable technical advice and design expertise to help accelerate housing development, deliver value for money and great places to live.”
Valued at £150m, the new frameworks with replace Homes England’s current framework that expires in November 2018.
