Vistry and Engie have both claimed spots on the two highest value lots, which cover work on large and intermediate sites and supported housing projects. 

The pair are also joined by Staffordshire firm Jessup Brothers and United Living on the two lots.

Lot four, which is for large sites and worth £200m, will be used for schemes that have more than 100 units or are worth more than £20m. Firms will be appointed via mini-competitions for each job.

Jessup Brothers is the only firm to have a place on all four lots.
