Deal to run four years

Firms are vying for places on a £25m consultants’ framework launched by Liverpool housing association Torus.

The four-year deal’s four lots are for employer’s agent services, architectural services, structural engineering and M&E consultancy.


The employer’s agent services lot has the highest value at £7.1m, with the architectural services lot valued at £4.3m and the remaining two lots valued at £1.1m each. The deadline for expressions of interest is 8 October.

The housing association, which works mostly in Liverpool, Warrington and St Helens, manages 40,000 homes.

Its £13m extra care scheme in St Helens, Foundry Wharf, has been delayed due to the collapse of the scheme’s main contractor Cruden in July. Torus is yet to announce a new contractor for the scheme.

Last year the housing association purchased Liverpool Football Club’s former Melwood training ground, and is currently taking an affordable housing scheme planned for the 5ha site to consultation.

Torus is set to redevelop a former warehouse at Liverpool’s Stanley Dock into a scheme (pictured) featuring over 200 homes and commercial space.
