East Anglian Social Landlords are set to realise both performance improvements and savings from the latest multi-million pound Eastern Procurement Property Improvement Frameworks.
Two new Frameworks replace our previous single-supplier solution with a more competitive, performance focused five-contractor arrangement for kitchens, bathrooms and other internal improvements plus a framework of three further contractors specifically for roofing works.
Eastern Procurement, the not-for-profit, customer-owned East-Anglia based procurement consortium invested more than £200,000 in 2015 developing its latest multi-service framework.
Steve Tyree, Managing Director of Eastern Procurement said; “these latest arrangements are our best yet: we are predicting savings for our members of up to 30%, as well as improved quality, performance and customer satisfaction.”
Mark Fisher, Procurement Manager said; “The new five contractor arrangement for kitchens, bathrooms and internal improvements brings both existing and new players to the area: Lovell Partnerships Limited, United Living (South) Limited, Foster Property Maintenance Limited, Roalco Limited and interestingly a new special-purpose-vehicle Seagway Limited, combining the strengths of two local businesses. The Roofing Framework brings a further three contractors; Lakehouse Group and two local SMEs: Aspect Roofing and Doors Plus Limited all of which are experienced in delivering this kind of work, to a high standard in this region. It’s a very exciting mix”
“The Frameworks are open to new housing associations, registered providers of social housing and stock holding local authorities. Works can be undertaken at tendered rates or alternatively projects can be commissioned via mini-competitions for annual programmes or key projects.”, Darren Welham, Delivery Manager.
This £160m procurement replaces the previous £82m framework procured in February 2012.
