We have recently been successful in our bid to get on the Reallies Consultancy Framework for Architectural Services which greatly improves our access to direct appointments Nationally with Public Sector Affordable Housing Providers. Of the 40 bidders in the Architecture Lot, we were ranked 4th overall which is a superb result up against some stiff competition.
The Reallies framework spans over 3 regional procurement consortia namely:
• Procure Plus which covers 53 different Housing Associations in the Lancashire, Manchester & Merseyside areas.
• Efficiency North which covers 30 different Housing Associations in the Yorkshire and Humberside area.
• CHIC which covers 61 different Housing Associations in the Midlands and Southern Regions.
This Framework, which is now live, allows us to be more active with Housing providers direct as well as land deals & section 106 opportunities via developers.
