EN:Procure is now calling for experienced and qualified contractors of all sizes to bid for a place of their new framework intended to deliver Affordable and Mixed Tenure New Build Housing Schemes for social housing landlords that are predominantly within Yorkshire and Humber.

The scope of works undertaken via the framework agreement will include site preparation, site remediation, associated civil engineering and infrastructure works, design, new build construction, refurbishment and the development of various property types.

The new framework has an anticipated maximum value of £340m. In addition to an innovative and EU compliant procurement route, it will offer a leading-edge supply chain for Efficiency North’s social housing landlord members, who own and manage more than 80% of the social housing stock within the region. It will also be instrumental in the success of EN’s strategy to support social mobility in the communities of member landlords by boosting local training and employment opportunities.

The framework has been flexibly structured to increase the number of opportunities available regardless of contractors’ size or location, and is divided into the following 4 Lots:

Lot 1 Schemes up to a maximum of 10 units

Lot 2 Schemes of between 8 and 35 units

Lot 3 Schemes of between 30 and 85 units

Lot 4 Schemes of 70 units and over

The deadline for submitting tenders is 17.00 on 12th September 2019.

The EN:Procure team are holding a Bidders Event for interested contractors on Thursday 22nd August 2019 at Efficiency North’s offices, 1st Floor, Sovereign Court, 300 Barrow Road, Meadowhall, Sheffield, S9 1JQ.  Details of how to register for the event are contained with the tender documentation available via the link.

Emma Mottram, EN:Procure Head of Operations, commented;

“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.  It’s one of the next generation of EN:Procure’s intelligent procurement solutions and presents a huge opportunity for local contractors.  We’ve divided it into lots that we hope will encourage businesses of all sizes who can offer a fantastic standard of work. The Bidders Event will give contractors practical, easy to understand advice on what to expect, what we’re looking for, and key timings for the process. We’re keen to help a broad range of contractors get a place to create a framework of the highest quality and flexibility for our landlord membership.”
