New appointments to The Connected Partnership Contractor Framework

The Connected Partnership, the leading consortium of Octavia Housing, Origin Housing and Shepherds Bush Housing Group, has appointed Higgins and Thomas Sinden to its Contractor Framework.

Thomas Sinden, which operates across London and throughout the South East, has been appointed to Lot 1 of The Connected Partnership Construction Framework, for projects with a value of £4.5m up to £12m.

Focusing predominately in North and West London and the Home Counties, Higgins has been appointed to Lot 2, which covers refurbishment and new-build projects with a value of over £10m over a four-year term. This appointment sees Higgins add to its portfolio of framework places with recent successes on The Hyde Group Main Contractor Framework and Islington Council New Build Construction Framework.

Steve Leakey, Managing Director of Higgins said: “With our wealth of experience and knowledge of new-build and refurbishment schemes, we are pleased once again to be appointed to this framework and look forward to working with The Connected Partnership to deliver its significant development programme to build genuinely affordable, high quality homes for London.

“We are very proud to have secured a ranking of second place out of the 12 successful bidders and be recognised for delivering high quality, competitive projects.”

Paul Cooke, Business Development Director for Thomas Sinden commented: “We have had an extremely positive start to 2020, with the appointment to a number of industry frameworks and with a wealth of experience across many disciplines, including commercial, residential and refurbishment, we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with The Connected Partnership over the next four years.”

The Connected Partnership focuses primarily on new-build accommodation for private rent, private sale, intermediate, shared ownership and affordable rent through both Connected-led and Section 106 schemes. Connected also produces care schemes and some community, retail and commercial buildings. In addition, Connected delivers regeneration schemes.

With nearly 60 years’ experience, Higgins has an established reputation for delivering both new build and refurbishment solutions together in partnership. It is committed to delivering exceptional estate regeneration schemes by creating thriving communities in which people can live, work, learn and play and which they are proud to be part of.
