Plus, an additional ‘All areas lot — covering Lots 1-9 (the Super-Lot)'. Please see the procurement documents for further details.

The works (including associated services and/or supplies) to be delivered are new build housing projects, including housing, bungalows, flats, apartments, care homes, etc. WPA anticipates a wide range of projects being delivered under the framework, from single smaller sites to complex multi-site projects.

This is reflected in a value-banded lot structure within each area (and the ‘all areas 1-9’ (Super-Lot)).

For delivery of developments of varying sizes: up to 5 units, 6-15 units, 16-49 units, 50 units and above.

The framework also provides for the delivery of associated community buildings to residential developments (such as hubs and sporting facilities e.g. meeting places, health and care centers, recreational facilities and libraries). Plus, any associated commercial facilities such as car parks and retail units. However, whilst scope for this associated development is included, bidders will not be substantively evaluated on this aspect of development, rather clients seeking to commission such developments (permissible only as incidental to a residential scheme) will carry out a mini-competition. Capability to compete such developments is also not criteria for selection.
