Introduction
Places for People Group is one of the largest property management, development and regeneration companies in the UK. We are also one of the largest Registered Providers of affordable housing. We were simultaneously Building UK Housebuilder of the Year 2013 and RESI Social Landlord and Property Managers of the Year; testimony to the quality of our service across all areas of the residential market.
With a long track record of successful large scale development, and a solid reputation for delivering complex regeneration in towns and cities, our approach goes much further than simply building homes. We look at what an area needs to be able to thrive — whether it is new schools, shops, leisure facilities, job opportunities, access to learning and training, or specialist support services — and we make a commitment to providing it.
Our Group mission is to ‘ensure successful places and enable people to reach their potential.’ As a not-for-dividend organisation, any profit we make is re-invested back into the business and our communities. With a platinum award in the Corporate Responsibility Index we are currently the leading company in our sector.

Additional information on Places for People, and its Group Structure is available from www.placesforpeople.co.uk

Unlike most house builders or landlords, Places for People operates across the housing market; developing and managing every tenure; from supported and social housing, through shared ownership and equity to market sales and rent.
As we have shown on our own award winning developments we invest in the infrastructure and quality of our places and offer flexible tenure homes to help make housing more accessible as well as more affordable.
We are totally committed to delivering aspirational homes in inspirational places; to work in partnership with the public sector to not only inspire the sustainable regeneration of our own neighbourhoods, but of theirs too. To create truly inspiring places for the people that will live there and the teams that will help create them. To deliver new ways of working and share our experience of what makes successful places.
In the current economic and political environment, the effective planning, management and realisation of value of the built environment has never been more critical. Many areas need ambitious and transformative regeneration and development programmes to drive investment in their communities. At the same time, public sector bodies continue to face unprecedented financial constraints and need to ensure that they achieve the best returns on the investment of their assets whilst supporting sustainable communities. New models for investment and delivery are needed that maximise the whole life returns — social and environmental as well as financial — on that investment.
Whilst the country continues to face a major shortage of housing, we know that building homes is just the start. New schools, shops, leisure facilities, job opportunities and training for support services make a place thrive. This is about generating the maximum returns from regeneration investment; sharing in the long term benefits to be gained whilst leaving behind a legacy of quality homes in sustainable neighbourhoods.
Placemaking Hub

Places for People were one of the pioneers of offering procurement frameworks to help drive economies of scale for us and our partners. We presently operate a number of successful frameworks including Green Services, Major Works, Professional Services, Utilities and IT Services that are already helping the public sector save money on its essential procurement in an EU compliant way (see www.procurementhub.co.uk for more information).

Using our knowledge, expertise and added value service offering, we want to create a platform where public bodies such as Local Authorities can compliantly and immediately access all the services required to facilitate the development of mixed tenure housing and all that a community needs to thrive within in it.
Placemaking goes way beyond the planning and delivery of the built environment; effective neighbourhood and tenancy management services, ICT solutions, neighbourhood assessment and reporting, community capacity building and asset and investment management strategies will all contribute to the long term success of a place.
In the same way our Placemaking Hub will go further; it can bridge this gap and provide a route to market for the public sector for cost effective, high quality and compliantly procured regeneration, development and property management related services and supplies. It will competitively market test all of the services required to deliver our Placemaking approach so that other contracting authorities can access it too. It will offer an end-to-end service; from the initial conceptual stages, through physical delivery and management of all tenures.
In order to deliver our Placemaking approach there will be a substantial range of skills that accompany such a potentially diverse range of activities. Whilst the Placemaking Hub will be offered as a holistic approach it is our intention to separate this into three distinct procurement procedures — Strategic Consultancy, Regional Consultancy (Dynamic Purchasing System) and Strategic Managed Services.
Contracting Authorities named in the OJEU Contract Notice will be able to ‘plug in and play’ by calling-off services from individual lots or accessing the intelligent client of Places for People Placemaking Limited as a Joint Venture partner with its compliant supply chain which supports it.
Our team has the structure and expertise to work with its partners every step of the way, from finding and securing land, through design and development and into sale and management. Our approach brings about lasting value through creating sustainable thriving communities and a strong sense of place. We are unique in our offering — few other developers can deliver this end-to-end service.
Regional Consultancy (DPS)
Places for People Placemaking Ltd are seeking to appoint a number of regionally focussed development and regeneration consultants that consistently meet the highest professional levels of performance and conduct. The providers will need to deliver high quality services across a number of areas, underpinned by a comprehensive understanding of the public sector environment.
Selected providers will be required to develop relationships with clients within specific geographic regions and the capability to deliver projects which require localised knowledge and appreciation. We have identified regions and post code locations for where services can be delivered.
Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)
The Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a procedure available for contracts for works, services and goods commonly available. As a procurement tool, it is run as a completely electronic process, but where new suppliers can join at any time.
Additional information about Dynamic Purchasing Systems can be found from Crown Commercial Service.
