A sub-contract clause has been included in this contract. For more information see:

Community benefits are included in this requirement. For more information see:

A summary of the expected community benefits has been provided as follows:

Albyn Housing Society aims to combat social exclusion and deprivation by promoting opportunities for training and employment for the long term unemployed. The contractor must be able to demonstrate its intention to integrate trainees and [long term] unemployed persons into the labour market without distinction of sex, marital status, race, ethnic origin or political or religious beliefs.

Albyn Housing Society also specifically wishes to encourage and intends to support the education and training of young people in order that they can be equipped to work successfully in the building and construction industries. The contractor is, therefore, required to recruit and train such young people.

The construction industry adds immense value to our communities. Community benefit is a means by which the industry can raise its profile in a positive way by adding additional value to the community in which the development is happening.

We are seeking innovative approaches for community benefit, however the table below gives examples of the types of community benefit that can be considered.

In general term for every 1 000 000 GBP of construction value we are looking for 20 points of community benefit to be delivered for this development.

The contractor is free to add in other activities that are not listed.

The contractor is required to complete for the development a community benefit plan, showing how his approach to community benefits will be achieved on a month by month basis during the construction phase of the project and confirm their commitment to implementing these deliverables during the contract. This will then be monitored as part of your contractor’s monthly progress report.

See attached community benefits documentation.
