Double framework appointment success demonstrates multidisciplinary strength


We are proud of our appointment to two recently launched four-year residential frameworks, highlighting our expertise across civil, structural and geo-environmental engineering.

Our civil and structural support can be procured through Great Places Housing Group’s £1.5 billion Innovation Chain North (ICN) framework. The framework has been designed to support delivery of new homes across the north of England, not only to support Great Places’ affordable development programme but also other housing associations operating across the north of England.

We are one of the 103 contractors and consultants from the 206 that applied to be successful, selected based on technical competence, price and commitment to social value.

Chris Pollet, our regional director in Liverpool, said: “The ICN framework is particularly competitive, proven by the number of applications and appointments, so we’re very pleased to have earned our place. Our presence and work pipeline in the north of England continues to grow, with this latest framework appointment undoubtedly set to help us support the delivery of new homes for a number of housing associations with exciting plans.”

Earning a place on the £6.6 million Keystone Developments Limited Professional Services and Consultancy Framework for new build residential, new build extra care and refurbishment projects, our team will also be able to provide housing associations in the Midlands and East of England with ground investigation services.

Director Stewart Friel said: “The requirement for a place on the Keystone Developments Limited Professional Services and Consultancy Framework was the ability to demonstrate relevant knowledge, skill and innovation. We know that our talented team meets these criteria, but it is always rewarding to be recognised and given the opportunity to contribute to important projects across a number of regions.

“Our two latest framework appointments prove our strength in multiple engineering disciplines and regional areas, which ties into our continued growth as a business and commitment to mutually beneficial relationships.”

Joanne Whitehead, Great Places’ development performance manager, responsible for managing the framework, said: “We are delighted to be working with Rodgers Leask on our new ICN framework. We are confident they will be able to work with us and the clients of ICN in delivering the sector’s extensive development ambitions in the North.”
