Other public bodies will have access to the frameworks
Homes England is set to launch its new £150m multidisciplinary and technical services frameworks.
Procurement will begin at the end of the month.
Stephen Kinsella, director for land at Homes England said: “This will be the fifth generation of our multidisciplinary framework and our biggest yet, demonstrating Homes England’s expanded role in bringing together land and expertise to speed up the building of new homes.”
Valued at £150m, the new frameworks with replace Homes England’s current framework which expires in November 2018.
Homes England will make the frameworks available to other public sector bodies to help them procure specialist technical services and develop homes.
The new frameworks will have an underpinning Multidisciplinary Framework, which will act as a one-stop shop to procure a range of integrated technical and design services from a single source.
The Multidisciplinary Framework will then be supplemented by a range of specialist frameworks to meet specific needs and enable Homes England to engage directly with a broader range of companies.
The multidisciplinary and technical frameworks have been designed to supplement the services provided by Homes England’s £150m property framework and its £8bn housing development framework delivery partner panel 3 (DPP3).
- Multidisciplinary Framework, which will act as a one-stop shop to procure a range of integrated technical and design services from a single source
- Five regionally-based frameworks to provide planning, masterplanning and consultation services to help gain planning permission on Homes England sites. This will enable Homes England’s regional delivery teams to engage directly with consultants with sound regional knowledge and experience
- A project, cost management and development monitoring framework which will support Homes England’s investment activities and provide more general project and cost management advice aligned to housing development and regeneration
- Specialist site survey and asbestos frameworks to provide very specific services to enable Homes England to quickly prepare brownfield land for development.
