Keepmoat, HT Forrest, Henry Boot and Seddon Construction are among seven contractors appointed to a new housing refurbishment framework by public sector procurement consortium Fusion21.

Focusing on high-rise tower refurbishment for local authorities and social housing in the UK, the framework plans to bring existing, underused or underinvested stock back into full use, maximising their value.

The framework, which also includes Bullock, Lawtech and P Casey, is expected to be worth £300m over the next four years.

These tower blocks are, according to Fusion21, are still “a good way of housing a lot of people in a small space”, even if it isn’t cheap to restore them.

The framework covers any works related to these multi-storey blocks, including the supply and installation of materials and is also available for either direct call-off or call-off after a mini competition between appointed contractors.

Work is already being commission through the framework by Golden Gates Housing Trust for Kingsway House in Warrington.
