Kier has been appointed to seven lots on the Hyde main framework development, which will see the construction of around 11,000 new homes
Hyde Group aims to build around 11,000 mixed-tenure homes through the five-year framework, which will primarily cover new build residential works with the possibility for public sector bodies to procure ancillary retail and commercial development.
The first six are split into three regions; Kent, South, and London with two value bands (£5m-£10m and £10m+). Lot 7 is for all regions with a value of £25m+ and lot 8 is for Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).
This latest appointment for Kier follows on from its appointment to the nationwide £8bn Procure Partnerships Framework which was established to ensure flexibility for public sector bodies to procure contractor partners.
Commitment to long-term frameworks
Cliff Thomas, managing director at regional building London & South East, said: “It is the first time we have tendered to be on this framework and our appointment is significant for us. It feeds directly into our strategic priority to operate under long-term frameworks, providing us with good visibility of future work opportunities.
“Our knowledge and expertise of delivering mixed-use housing schemes across the country will support us in delivering mixed tenure housing schemes through the framework, and we look forward to creating beautifully designed quality homes.”
Stephen McMorris, director of development and Sales at Hyde said: “I am delighted that we have launched this main contractor framework which is also open to all other public sector organisations.
“We went through a stringent process of appointing partners who have each demonstrated a commitment to providing quality services, delivering value for money and working collaboratively.
“We look forward to working more closely with our partners who will help us achieve our ambition of building as many homes as we can across London and the southeast.”
