BTP Architects appointed to JV North's £180m Home Building Framework

BTP has been reappointed to the architectural panel of JV North’s £180m Home Building Framework.

The consortium, which has 11 social housing association members across Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Nottingham and Preston, has appointed contractors and consultants for works valued at £1 million and over.

Vicky Saunders, Managing Director of South Manchester-based BTP, said: “BTP has enjoyed a successful partnership with JV North for many years and is looking forward to being part of its ambitious development programme which will deliver much needed affordable housing to the region.”

JV North is investing £335.5 million to build nearly 3,000 new homes under the Government’s Shared Ownership Affordable Homes Programme.

Approximately 2,000 of the homes – for rent and ownership – will be delivered through the new four-year framework that starts in July.

Sean Stafford, Director of Saffer Cooper which manages JV North’s development programme, said: “We received a large number of applications – in total 30 contractors and 89 consultants applied.

“We are delighted with the quality of the businesses selected for what will be a very busy period as we build thousands of much needed homes over the coming years.

“Housing association members are already well underway with their home building plans and will be calling off the framework immediately.”

JV North Chairman and Chief Executive at Wythenshawe Community Housing Group, Nigel Wilson said: “The current framework that is due to end has been a big success and this is due to the excellent partnership work, dedication and commitment of the companies involved.

“We are very grateful for their input over the past four years and look forward to the new framework where I’m sure the standard will be raised once again to the benefit of residents in all members’ communities.”
