The Riverside Partnership is a consortium of more than 10 different housing associations from the North of England.
Under the four-year agreement Forrest, which provides regeneration, refurbishment and responsive maintenance services, will be able to tender for all works worth up to £3 million and above.
Mansell has secured a place on all price bands and geographic lots.
The framework covers projects across Manchester, East Cheshire, West Cheshire and Merseyside.
The deal follows Forrest’s appointment by Riverside last month to its repairs framework to replace doors on more than 2,000 homes.
Forrest has also secured a place on the North West Construction Hub’s Low Value four-year framework after winning a place on its Medium Value framework last summer.
Both Hub frameworks are accessible to all local authorities and public sector organisations in the North West for construct-only works worth between £150,000 and £4.5 million.
Mark Lyons, managing director at Forrest, said: “Our partnership-led approach coupled with a focus on engaging with communities we serve makes us ideally placed to help the Riverside Partnership to create and support quality housing.”
Mansell’s Affordable Housing Director, Marcus Keys, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by the Riverside Partnership to create much needed high quality homes across the country.
“This builds on Mansell’s existing relationship with Riverside, we have worked together for the last five years on the £60 million Sandwell Housing PFI programme.”
The Riverside Partnership includes The Riverside Group Limited, The Vicinity Group – including Liverpool Housing Group, Cobalt, Beechwood Ballantyne, Atrium and Ribble Valley Homes – The Regenda Group, Progress Housing, Venture Housing Association , Contour Housing Group and Twin Valley Homes.
