Mi-space secures place on £350m construction framework
Mi-space has secured a place on a multi-million-pound construction framework aiming to tackle the housing crisis by creating thousands of homes over the next decade.
The construction framework is worth £350m and will see 10,000 new homes built across the south of England. It is run by Abri, a housing association that oversees 35,000 homes and 80,000 customers.
Midas Group’s specialist residential business, Mi-space, is one of eleven contractors to win a place on the Abri framework.
Midas Group Chief Executive, Alan Hope, said: “We are pleased to announce our involvement with the Abri framework and we look forward to being part of such a vital development, enabling communities across the south of England to benefit from modern, sustainable new homes.
“Frameworks like this are instrumental to our continued success, allowing us to forge strong and lasting partnerships with customers while continuing to create high quality developments fit for the future.”
James Pennington, Director of Development at Abri said: “We’re really looking forward to working with partners who share our mutual interests to help build communities that provide social value. But it’s not just about building homes, this framework will also help to create jobs for people and provide educational opportunities. With our shared commitments to building high quality, sustainable homes this partnership led approach will enable us to build many new communities in the coming years.”
Frameworks add value for customers through early contractor involvement and simplify procurement by connecting customers with the industry’s leading contractors. They also provide the opportunity for Midas to win repeat business and further its strategy to build long-term relationships.
Frameworks secured by Midas over recent years include the Procurement Partnerships National Framework with lots for developments valued between £4m and £12m across three regions; the South West, South East and South Wales; the University of Oxford’s Capital Projects Partner Framework for developments valued between £5m and £20m; as well as re-securing its place on the £5.2b SCF Framework.
