Anchor Hanover announces contractor framework to deliver ambitious growth plans
Anchor Hanover has announced a robust supply chain of reputable construction specialists to work alongside, to deliver its vision for the future and target to create 3,200 homes for older people in the next eight years.
Following a competitive tender process, a combination of strong national and regional specialist housing contractors form part of the four -year framework agreement.
Anchor Hanover’s Head of Technical and Commercial, Richard Pullen said:
The framework in place is focused on trust and collaborative working, so the team can deliver a more competitive approach to procurement as well as better design and build techniques. The framework is in two value bands with projects between £5m to £25m and projects over £25m which is split into regions. We have identified contractors with national presence as well as those who operate specifically within core local areas. This will help to ensure the most appropriate company is appointed depending on the required local knowledge and supply chain relationships. As part of the procurement process, a number of contractors per region will be approached on a rotational basis to deliver our ambitious development pipeline.
Anchor Hanover’s Head of Development Delivery, Victoria Mager said:
As Anchor Hanover look to increase the volume of homes being built to meet demand, our partnerships with contractors are more important than ever to ensure smooth and timely deliveries. Working with these partners, the aims throughout our build programmes are to minimise the amount of construction disturbance to existing communities whilst also ensuring that those interested in living with an Anchor Hanover community can move into their new home on time and into a property where they love living in later life.
The bidding process for the first projects in Newmarket, Suffolk and York will be put to tender within the next month. For Newmarket, the successful contractor will be appointed to build Anchor Hanover’s development of 69 one- and two-bedroom apartments offering home ownership and independent living. Building works on the project are anticipated to start by Autumn. The York project will see the appointed contactor deliver a development of 58 apartments with build due to commence in November 2021.
