A Midlands-based construction firm has secured a spot on a £1 billion new build housing framework.
Deeley Construction, which is headquartered in Coventry, has been named with 31 other contractors on the four-year framework.
Not-for-profit public sector procurement body LHC will operate the Construction of New Homes (H2) framework, which will run until September 2026 solely for projects in England.
Deeley Construction was selected due to its expertise in a mix of disciplines, including low and high-rise housing, care homes and student accommodation.
Martin Gallagher, managing director at Deeley Construction, said: “To be delivering a variety of public sector construction projects as part of the LHC Construction of New Homes (H2) framework is an important step.
“Addressing the need for low carbon and energy efficient housing through action and improving the lives of the communities we work in is at the heart of what we do – and we’re keen to start working with our peers across England to ensure we, as contractors, are providing an innovative and top-class service for our clients and for the general public.
“In the here and now and looking ahead to the future, being environmentally responsible when working on live projects is key to a successful build.
“We support the framework’s emphasis on delivering the new Future Homes Standard and Net Zero Carbon homes through ourselves and the other contractors involved in the partnership, starting with the implementation of the new building regulations that came into force in June 2022.”
LHC’s regional business units across England operating the framework include LHC London and South East and Consortium Procurement Construction (CPC) in the North and Midlands.
Dean Fazackerley, head of technical procurement at LHC, said: “The new H2 framework in England will equip providers to meet ongoing housing challenges within the public sector, addressing local housing demand while maintaining momentum in their journey towards the production of zero carbon homes.
“It’s hugely important that we continue to respond to the housing needs of local populations while at the same time looking to the future, creating healthier environments that embody social, human, and environmental considerations.”
