Galliford Try among winners on £160m housing framework

Housing group Bromford has appointed four contractors to a new £160m housing framework.

Galliford Try Partnerships was appointed to two of the framework’s three lots, alongside Morgan Sindall’s housing arm Lovell, Speller Metcalfe, and residential contractor EG Carter.

The framework will focus predominantly on the wider Gloucestershire area, but will also span across the Midlands and the South-west. Bromford’s own construction arm Bromford Developments already undertakes its own schemes across much of the North.

The three lots of the framework will be divided according to size of developments, ranging from projects below 20 units to large developments of 100 or more.

Bromford awarded EG Carter to lot one, for developments of up to 20 units, alongside Speller Metcalfe.

Medium developments of 20-100 units will be covered under lot two, which Lovell, Galliford Try and EG Carter have won places on.

Lot three has been awarded to Galliford Try and Lovell and will feature developments of 100 units and more.

Bromford executive director of new homes Martyn Blackman said: “Forming strategic relationships with partners whose ambition and values align with our own is a key part of the Bromford strategy. This framework is about working collaboratively to increase the number of homes we build, to invest in innovation, and to ultimately build the best quality homes which will enable our customers to thrive.

“The partnership will see £160m invested into the wider Gloucestershire area and we are confident it will demonstrate how collaborative working can help deliver the high quality homes needed to combat the UK’s housing crisis.”

Galliford Try’s appointment follows a string of contract wins for the firm, with the group also winning £435m worth of Highways England contracts earlier this week.

At the beginning of the month, Galliford Try announced to the stock market that it had agreed “high-level” terms with Bovis to sell its housing arm, Linden Homes in a deal worth £1.08bn.

Areas the new framework will cover include the West Midlands, Shropshire, Staffordshire, South Gloucestershire, Cirencester, the Cotswolds, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and some areas of East Wales.

The framework is expected to run for four years.
