Revealed: 26 contractors chosen for two housing frameworks worth over £1bn

Twenty-six firms have bagged a spot on two major frameworks for Hyde Housing totalling over £1bn, Construction News can reveal.

Contractors including Bouygues, Galliford Try and Laing O’Rourke have won places on the housing association’s £1bn main contractor framework.

Laing O’Rourke is also one of the four contractors to have bagged a spot on Hyde Housing’s £100m Modern Methods of Construction framework.

The MMC framework has no lots and will last for four years. It includes offsite manufacturing services across Kent, the south coast and London.

Laing O’Rourke was selected for the MMC framework alongside F1 Modular, Mar City Homes and Mear New Homes.

The £1bn main contractor framework has been split into eight lots also covering Kent, the south coast and London and will last for four years.

Kent has two lots: up to £5m; and over £5m. The South Coast has three lots: up to £5m; above £4m and up to £10m; and above £10m. London has two lots: up to £15m; and above £15m. The last lot is for all regions above £25m.

Contractors including Bouygues, Galliford Try, Osborne and Willmott Dixon have won places across multiple lots on the £1bn framework, with other firms including Ardmore Construction and Wates also winning work on individual lots.

Speaking when the frameworks launched last September, Hyde Group business development director David Gannicott said the frameworks would help Hyde “build new homes that people are proud to live in”.

He added: “At the same time, they also reflect Hyde’s ongoing commitment to exploring the use of modern methods of construction in future housing stocks. 

“They provide a great opportunity for us to forge closer working relationships with local authorities and other housing associations, who can come on board and take advantage of these new framework agreements.”

The frameworks can be used by social housing providers in the UK, which includes housing associations and local authorities.
