Midas takes its place on new £20 billion Homes England framework
Midas Construction is delighted to have been selected to join a new £20 billion procurement framework set up by Homes England.
The new Homes England delivery partner dynamic purchasing scheme (DPS) marks a step change in the way Homes England works with developers, contractors and housebuilders to build new homes.
The aim is to streamline the process for building new homes - and in particular affordable homes – providing greater opportunities for regional contractors and inviting site-specific local partnerships aimed at delivering schemes large and small.
The framework will be the primary route for firms looking to partner direct with Homes England on land it owns and the DPS can also be used by local authorities and housing associations to find and engage with contractors for projects on their own land.
Midas Group Chief Executive, Alan Hope, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to be part of this significant procurement framework that will give considerable impetus to the continued delivery of high quality, fit for the future new homes, across the region and countrywide.
“Recent years have seen frameworks become an increasingly important source of activity for Midas. It’s an approach to the procurement and construction process which has been proven as an effective solution for our customers and which fits well with our own ethos of building strong partnerships and securing repeat business through a collaborative approach.”
News of Midas’s appointment to the Homes England DPS follows Midas Group’s specialist residential business, Mi-space, being named in July as one of 11 contractors to win a place on the £350m Abri framework. The construction framework run by Abri, a housing association that oversees 35,000 homes and 80,000 customers, will see 10,000 new homes built across the south of England over the next decade.
Other 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.
