City West Housing Trust is inviting firms to bid for places on a nine-lot housing framework worth £225m.

The Manchester-based trust is undertaking the construction of multi-dwelling buildings and individual houses, as well as environmental and renewable energy works alongside several specialist and maintenance jobs.

Running for up to four years, the framework is estimated to be worth £225m, and contains scope for contracts to be extended beyond the period.

Bidding is open until 2 November, at 13:00.
