£750m Framework Partners Announced
22 Jun 20
Great Places Housing Group has announced that Seddon has been appointed to their £750 million Innovation Chain North Framework.
The four-year framework, which has placed social value at its heart, is designed to support the delivery of new homes across the North of England, not only for Great Places but also for other Housing Associations that operate across the North of England.
Seddon has been appointed to two lots, including the high value North West and North East categories. A strong emphasis is being placed on the contractor’s social value pledges, including commitment to apprenticeships, work experience opportunities and volunteering hours.
Joanne Whitehead, Great Places’ Procurement and Performance Manager, said: “Well done to Seddon and all the organisations who have been awarded a place on the framework. We received a large number of high-quality bids and we now have an excellent group of contractors and consultants covering a wide range of disciplines to support our housing delivery ambitions. Great Places and the other housing providers who access the framework look forward to working with them all in the future.”
Duncan Williams, Regional Director at Seddon, said: “Social value has always been at the heart of what we do, and we’re well known for our commitment to charity, training and community work across the North West. We’re really pleased that our continued focus in this area has helped us gain a place on this new framework, enabling us not only to create new homes across the region but also create new opportunities for the residents too. A big thank you to all our team who have helped to make this happen.”
Helen Spencer, Great Places’ Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to be working with Seddon on our new ICN framework. We are confident they will be able to work with us and the clients of ICN in delivering the sector’s extensive development ambitions in the North. We were delighted to have a huge response from the market and receive high quality proposals and substantial social value pledges for our communities. We are now looking forward to mobilising the framework and working together on new projects with Seddon supporting us with building new homes”
