Clarion has started the search for three contractors to take up space on its new £1.8bn framework.

The housing association has published details of its Planned Investment and Regeneration Major Works framework, which has been divided into three lots and will run for 20 years.

Clarion is looking to appoint contractors to provide planned investment and regeneration major works to the properties they own and manage across separate geographical areas.

The properties in these areas cover a mix of general needs, supported housing and leaseholder/shared ownership properties, many of which are contained within blocks of flats.

A single contractor will be appointed to each lot.

Lot one covers the east region, which includes East Anglia, as well as Birmingham and Coventry local authority areas.

The lot, which is worth £546m, covers 17,800 properties, of which there are 3,152 bungalows, 8,786 houses and 5,865 flats.

Lot two, which has a value of £615m, is for works in the north of London, including properties in 14 different boroughs. 

The contractor will be responsible for works relating to 19,942 properties of which there are 4,090 houses and 15,852 flats.

Lot three is for the south of London and the south and is worth £600m.

The lot covers Kent, Southern Home Counties, Dorset, and local authority areas of Bromley, Croydon, Sutton, Lewisham, Southwark, Lambeth, Mitcham, Maldon, Wandsworth and Kingston upon Thames.

It is made up of around 29,476 properties of which there are 710 bungalows, 11,690 houses and 17,076 flats. 

Within this region Clarion also has 8,718 properties in Merton, which include 2,473 houses and 6,245 flats

A single contractor will be awarded each lot, with each firm only able to be awarded one lot. At least three firms will be invited to bid for each lot.

Companies have until 4 October to express interest in the framework, with shortlisted firms due to be invited to tender by the end of October.
