Homes England, the Government’s new housing delivery organisation which is taking a more commercial approach to respond to the UK’s long term housing challenges, is to broaden the range of technical and design services available to accelerate the supply of new homes.

The new frameworks will provide direct access to professional, technical and design services to help prepare land for housing development and disposal in the market more quickly and meet the government’s ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the middle of the next decade.

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.

“We want to create strong working relationships with a wider range of companies who can provide valuable technical advice and design expertise to help accelerate housing development, deliver value for money and great places to live.”

Valued at £150 million, the new frameworks with replace Homes England’s current framework that expires in November 2018.

Homes England will make the frameworks available to other public sector bodies, for example local authorities, to help them procure specialist technical services and develop homes for their residents. Our frameworks have been used by over 300 other public bodies.
