JV North advertises £180m framework

3 Mar 17 A consortium of housing associations is looking for contractors and consultants for a capital works framework worth £180m over a four-year term.

JV North, made up of 10 landlords in Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Preston, is looking to appoint up to 12 suppliers who can offer building contractor construction services.

Suppliers selected for the framework will then compete with each other for contracts. The predominant type of construction work will be new build houses, flats and bungalows, together with associated community amenity and infrastructure.

Overall, JV North plans to invest £335.5m to build nearly 2,758 homes over the next four years after securing an £87.3m grant in January from the Homes & Communities Agency’s shared ownership affordable homes programme. (See our previous report here.)

Under a parallel but separate procurement process, JV North is also looking to appoint consultants to provide £9m of professional services. There are separate lots for architects and project managers. Details of the consultants’ framework are at
