Network Homes wishes to establish a framework agreement for the provision of employers agent and principal designer services.

We are one of the UK’s leading housing associations with over 40 years’ experience developing award winning homes. A member of the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations, we own and manage over 20 000 homes across London, Hertfordshire and the South East. We love to build homes and we take great pride in the quality of the homes we deliver. We develop homes for a variety of affordable tenures including social, affordable and intermediate rents, shared ownership and rent to buy products. We also develop homes for market sale and for market rent. We also manage and develop a ranges of tenures for older people.

We have a strong track record of development and regeneration, with an ambitious growth strategy of 5 000 new homes over the next 5 years and secure development pipeline of approximately 2 500 homes. We have strong relationships with Homes England, the GLA, and local authorities across our operational area.

Network Homes’ Growth Strategy sets out our ambition to deliver 1 000 units a year within London and Hertfordshire which will be delivered through three procurement routes: land, S106 opportunities and package deals and this framework will help us deliver this.

We have and maintain an impressive pipeline of development opportunities, with schemes of varying scales, ranging from garage site redevelopments, neighbourhood-transforming regeneration schemes, land-led residential developments of 100 units+, up to significant mixed use opportunities including a 575 unit residential-led development in Southall and a 1,600 unit placemaking scheme at Northwick Park. Where the opportunity is right, we look at the potential for joint ventures.

We usually have between fifteen and twenty development sites between the stages of offer accepted and exchange and expect this rate to remain constant over the framework period.

We currently have 18 projects on site, with more due to commence in the coming months. The majority of these projects are land led, with the remainder being made up of S106 development agreements and package deals.

Under the framework agreement network homes will have the option to call-off contracts as and when services are required.

The services required are set out in the schedule of services in the tender documents pack.

We will appoint 9 or 10 consultancies. Criteria are set out in the documents.

Other social housing providers in the UK (both those that are in existence now and those that may come into existence during the term of the framework agreement) may also be entitled to call-off contracts under the framework agreement. ‘Social Housing Provider’ for this purpose means any provider of social housing and includes registered providers (as listed on the Gov.UK Website:, and may include local authorities and ALMO's. Applicants should note that, under the framework agreement, no organisation that is entitled to call-off shall be under any obligation to do so neither does any social housing provider have the automatic right to do so without direct permission from Network Homes Ltd.

Where other ‘Social Housing Providers’ have instructed call-off contracts under this framework agreement, the value of the Framework stipulated in II.2.6) may increase over its 4 year duration.

The contracting authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement.
