Housing association seeks contractors for £800m frameworks

Hampshire-based Sovereign Housing Association has launched a search for contractors to build up to £800m-worth of new housing across 16 separate multi-supplier framework agreements.

The association owns and manages 60,000 homes across Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, the West of England and the Isle of Wight.

The total number of homes to be built has not been disclosed, but sites will range from five to 500 homes, with the frameworks split by geographical areas within the east and west of England. The frameworks will also be based on the estimated size of each project with reference to the number of units that will need to be delivered.

The contracts will also include provision for small garage infill sites, rural exception sites, medium-sized one-off schemes, and large, multi-phased developments.

The £800m Sovereign works come as a raft of housing associations have been gearing up to deliver their development portfolios in recent months.

Earlier this month, One Housing Group, which owns and manages about 17,000 properties in London and the South East, announced plans to team up with a development partner to deliver a £150m scheme at Stewart Street in Tower Hamlets. The scheme included 84 apartments across two blocks, and a community centre.

The Sovereign contracts are set to begin in September and last for two years. For more information on how to apply click here.
