Catalyst picks 22 contractors for £500m housing framework

More than 20 contractors have been picked for a £500m construction framework to build affordable homes across London and the South-east.

Housing association Catalyst has named a total of 22 contractors on its four-year framework, which will see firms deliver a variety of projects including mixed-use developments and major regeneration schemes.

The framework is split across six lots, divided regionally into those projects within London and those projects outside the capital (see table).

Bouygues, Galliford Try, Rydon, Wates and Willmott Dixon are among the biggest winners, securing spots on the lots for £30m-plus projects in and outside London.

Durkan, Henry Construction, Higgins, Hill, Midgard and United Living were also chosen for both £30m-plus project lots.

Catalyst will open up the framework for use by other housing associations and local authorities for a fee.

Catalyst is one of the biggest housing associations London and the South-east and manages more than 21,000 rented and shared ownership homes in the region.

It plans to deliver more than 1,000 extra homes by 2020.

Catalyst executive director of property & growth at Tom Titherington said: “Our new framework will help Catalyst drive better value for money and enable us to deliver even more great homes.

“We also have the benefit of working with contractors that we know and trust and that understand the importance of our core social purpose.”
