News: £836m social housing framework


Efficiency North (EN) is inviting contractors to deliver new build social housing projects in Yorkshire and Humber, with contracts worth a total of £836m.

The consortium leads on procurement for millions of pounds worth of construction services in the region. It is a collaboration of social housing providers who procure together in the construction markets in order to deliver sustainable savings and regeneration in the member's communities.

EN took space at Templeborough in Rotherham last year as it evolved into a new company format.

Three lots of work are now up for tender, forming part of an £836m New Build framework operated by Re:allies, a strategic collaboration of housing consortia, of which Efficiency North is a founding member.

For the first lot, valued at £62m, Efficiency North is seeking up to 30 contractors to complete multiple schemes solely in Yorkshire and Humber, up to the value of £2m each. Up to another 30 contractors are required for the second £394m lot of larger schemes and up to a further ten for £70m of projects throughout the North of England.

Lee Parkinson, chief executive officer at Efficiency North, said: "The new framework presents a huge opportunity for us to create much needed high quality homes to help alleviate the current social housing crisis and regenerate local communities across our region."

A simple single-stage procurement process is being used by the consortium, with just one questionnaire for contractors to complete, instead of a traditional Pre-Qualification Questionnaire. This method streamlines the tender stage and ensures the most appropriate contractors are chosen for the work available.

Lee added: "By opening up the bidding to as many firms as possible, we can ensure we find the best partners for the needs of each project, which will not only deliver value for money, but will also make sure we provide the highest quality homes for local communities in Yorkshire and Humber."

A Bidders' Day is taking place in Manchester on September 14.

In June, EN awarded contracts to 57 contractors for a diverse range of internal and external works to social housing properties in the region. The EN Procure Installers framework has an estimated demand pipeline of £360m over its four year lifetime.
