Wates and Wilmott Dixon among firms on £2.5bn London housing framework

Wates, Wilmott Dixon and Bouygues UK have won spots on a £2.5bn framework to build 7,000 new houses across London.

The framework, tendered by housing association Notting Hill Genesis, will run for four years until June 2026, with the option to extend for a further two years.

A total of 39 suppliers were named on the Notting Hill Development Contractors Framework, which can be accessed by other registered housing providers in and around London.

The houses will range from 50-unit urban infill sites to the regeneration of entire estates in the city.

Other firms named in the agreement include John Graham, HG Construction, Henry Construction, McClaren, Higgins Partnerships, Vistry, Claritas Group, Countryside Partnerships and Lovell Partnerships.

Notting Hill Genesis deputy chief executive John Hughes said: “Our new framework is a key part of our commitment to better-quality homes and improving the experience for our residents. The membership of the framework has a greater level of diversity than we have achieved before.”

He added: “We want the companies we work with to reflect the communities in which we work.”

Firms based in London and southeast England make up the majority of firms selected for the scheme.

Essex-based Higgins Partnerships managing director Steve Leakey said: “We already have a well-established partnership working with Notting Hill Genesis on projects including Peckham Place in Peckham, the recently completed Woolwich Reach in Newham and City Park West in Chelmsford.

“We are pleased to have secured our position on their development framework and look forward to working together to deliver more homes within sustainable communities.”

Firms were notified of the housing framework in September 2021.
