Mi-space secures a place on housing framework for South West and Wales
Mi-space Living has successfully secured a place on the London Housing Corporation (LHC) H1 framework to carry out housing development schemes across the South West of England and South Wales.
This is the latest framework award for the company, part of the Midas Group, one of the UK’s largest independent construction and property services providers.
The LHC H1 framework covers all areas from Cornwall up to Gloucester and into South Wales, divided into lots according to region and project size. Mi-space has been successful in two lots, covering housing developments of 16 to 49 properties and 50 units or more.
Frameworks, including this one, are hugely important to the Midas Group, providing the opportunity to win repeat business and further the firm’s strategy to build long-term relationships with customers.
Ian Farrell, Director for Mi-space, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as a strategic partner on the framework.
“Securing projects through frameworks allows us to work more closely with customers on the planning and design of schemes, which results in improved efficiency, quality and performance.”
Frameworks offer support and an effective construction procurement route, giving customers access to the top contractors in the region who have already successfully completed a rigorous tendering and evaluation process. It simplifies the procurement process for local authorities and public and private sector organisations when they look to bring forward individual projects and, more importantly, brings added value through early contractor involvement.
In the last three years alone, the Midas Group has delivered more than 50 projects valued around £300 million through framework agreements and strategic partnerships; including education projects, residential, retail, defence estates and varied public sector facilities.
New frameworks in the last year include the £8 billion Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) Framework, which is set to drive major investment in schools and other education facilities over the next four years, and where Midas was successful in lots covering the South, South East and West Midlands. More recently, the Southern Construction Division earned a place on the Dorset County Council Framework.
