HCA reveals extended delivery panel
Thu 4th April 2013, 4:41 pm
The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has announced the developers which will get a place on its new delivery partner panel.
Successful bidders include Kier, Bouygues, Lovell, Rydon and Sitematch London advisor Willmott Dixon, making a total of 25 delivery partners.
The DPP2 will be used by the HCA and its partners to procure contractors to work on up to 29.000 new homes across 150 sites outside London.
It will also be available for other public bodies looking to streamline their procurement process, the HCA said.
DPP2 has replaced the previous delivery panel (DPP1), which consisted of 17 members and was launched in January 2010.
Richard Hill, interim chief executive at the HCA, said: “Bringing forward land for development and speeding up the rate at which it is made available is a priority for Government.
"We hope that DPP2 will build on the success of the original Delivery Partner Panel and continue to offer local authorities and public sector partners the opportunity to procure developers in a cost effective, speedy and efficient manner.”
A statement from Willmott Dixon said: “Willmott Dixon was appointed on four regional frameworks with the HCA – the 4 regional lots being the South East, South West, Midlands and North.
"A place on these framework with other national developers and contractors not only provides opportunity to bid for a total development programme potentially worth in excess of £4 billion gross development value over four years, but also opens up procurement routes for over 50 other public sector bodies across health, education, leisure and emergency services.”
A list of developers appointed to the Greater London Authority's separate delivery panel is set to be announced in due course.
A full overview of all DDP2 members is available on the HCA's website.
