National procurement organisation Fusion21 has announced the suppliers successfully appointed to its national Construction Works & Improvements Framework developed for the housing sector, which is worth up to £800m, over a four-year period.
A total of 45 highly skilled firms — including 50% SMEs — have secured a place on the framework which is accessible to the market on Monday 1st April and has been specifically developed to support housing providers, local authorities and other public sector organisations to deliver capital works programmes.
The framework offers a range of internal and external refurbishment and improvement works through to the building of additional structures and will support the delivery of regeneration programmes, modernisation and upgrade works, plus construction of all building types required across the housing sector — from new homes to extra care schemes and roof top developments.
Peter Francis, Director of Operations at Fusion21 said: “Having responded to member and market demand we have created a commercially efficient framework solution that will support the delivery of refurbishment and regeneration programmes across the public sector.
“Our members will benefit from working with supply partners that have been appointed based on sector experience, competence and capability, whilst also having the option to select suppliers by region and value band to meet local delivery requirements.
“In addition, this framework offers value for money, streamlined price models, flexible call-off process and social value outcomes.”
Fusion21 provides procurement services to the public sector — fully compliant with EU, UK and Scottish legislation — and is committed to making a difference in communities across the UK. To date the firm has saved its members more than £197m through the procurement process, created more than 5,500 jobs and generated £78m of social value.
