Galliford Try will develop housing in Redcar, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Dorset as part of Homes England's initiative to accelerate the pace of house-building.
Work begins on the projects immediately with the first planning applications being submitted this month; the first homes are expected to complete in spring 2020.
The projects will deliver a mixture of housing tenures including open market housing, affordable rent, shared ownership, private rented sector and an extra-care development.
The value of the deal to Galliford Try has yet to be disclosed.
Stephen Teagle, chief executive of Galliford Try Partnerships, said: "We are delighted with our extension of work in partnership with Homes England to accelerate the delivery of much-needed new homes in these regions."
