Contractors and materials suppliers are being sought for a major framework agreement for social housing works in the North West.
Trafford-based regeneration group, Procure Plus, is looking for suppliers to join its labour and installation framework for homes in the region, and is holding a series of 'meet the buyer' events for businesses to find out more.
In addition to its labour framework, Procure Plus is also refreshing its multi-million pound materials agreement and is looking for providers and distributors to supply goods for social housing works across the North of England.
The social housing landlords represented by Procure Plus include Trafford Housing Trust, Northwards Housing and Stockport Homes.
Contractors are required for a range of building services at social housing properties, including kitchen, bathroom, heating and electrical installations, as well as general building, masonry, painting and decorating, and roofing works.
To help contractors find out more about the labour and installation agreement, its structure and how they can apply to participate in the procurement process, Procure Plus is holding three Meet the Buyer events: the first at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford on Monday 13 May; a second on Tuesday 14 May at Haydock Racecourse; and a third on Wednesday 15 May at the Rheged Centre in Penrith.
The supply framework is split into 46 lots and requires providers for goods including kitchens, bathrooms and flooring as well as more specialist renewable technologies such as ground source heat pumps and solar photovoltaics.
To allow potential suppliers to find out more about the agreement, Procure Plus is holding two Meet the Buyer events, the first at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford, on Monday 13 May and a second on Friday 17 May at Leeds Metropolitan University.
