Contractors lose places on £4bn housing framework

Grant Prior 10 years ago

A string of major contractors have been replaced with housebuilders on the Homes and Communities Agency’s new £4bn framework.

The Delivery Partner Panel 2 framework comes into force next week and will be used to procure £4bn worth of homes over the next four years.

The framework is divided into four lots covering the country outside of London which has a separate deal run by the Greater London Authority.

Twenty five firms have won places in each of the four regions with a shift towards housebuilders.

The original £2.8bn framework contained more contractors but big industry names who have been included on the new deal include Willmott Dixon, Wates, Kier, Bouygues, Lovell, Mansell, Carillion, Miller, Higgins, Rydon and Galliford Try.

It has been used to build 29,000 new homes across 150 sites by 110 HCA partners since 2010.

Major contractors who have not been included this time round include Mace, Laing O’Rourke, Skanska, Ardmore and Lend Lease.

But the Enquirer understands that a number of original framework winners declined to bid this time.

One said: “We didn’t submit this time like a number of others because of the poor quality administration and poor quality of projects on the panels outside London last time.”

The HCA said: “Delivery Partner Panel 2 (DPP2) is a framework panel of prequalified housing developers, which will be used to speed the construction and development of homes on land owned by HCA and other public sector bodies.

“We expect £4bn of housing development to be procured through the panel.

“The main aim of DPP2 is to make the procurement of homes as quick and efficient as possible for both private sector panel members and public sector panel users.

“The Panel can be used to procure a developer to take responsibility for all stages of the development process from obtaining planning permission, through design and construction, to marketing and sales. Quality standards can be set to meet the needs of each individual project.

‘The Panel also enables early engagement with the private sector in the process of developing a site.”

Richard Hill, interim chief executive at the HCA, said: “Bringing forward land for development and speeding up the rate at which it is made available is a priority for Government.

“We hope that DPP2 will build on the success of the original Delivery Partner Panel and continue to offer local authorities and public sector partners the opportunity to procure developers in a cost effective, speedy and efficient manner.”
