Contractor wins place on £500m framework

A contractor has won a place on a framework worth up to £500 million with a major housing provider.

United House will join A2Dominion in the building, repair and refurbishment of homes in London for the duration of the four-year framework.

The focus of the works will be mainly in urban areas and town centres, on both greenfield and brownfield sites and the framework is for contracts with an estimated value of between £5m and £25m-per-year.

According to United House, the homes being built and refurbished will be high in density and number of storeys and the work incorporates renewable technologies.

Jeffrey Adams, group chief executive of United House, said: ‘Securing this long-term framework with A2Dominion Group reflects our reputation for delivering quality work on major works across London, on time, on budget and at a competitive price.

‘Customer service is our ultimate priority and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with A2Dominion Group in the future.’

Doreen Wright, A2Dominion’s development director (programme & quality) said: ‘A2Dominion is one of the country’s leading developing housing associations and we have thousands of homes in the development pipeline in London.

‘We look forward to working alongside United House to deliver more high-quality new homes in the capital.’
