Multi-disciplinary design practice, rg+p has been awarded a place on the £40m Homes England Development Monitoring and Management Services Framework.
One of only 15 consultants to have been successfully appointed, rg+p is approved to deliver compliance inspector, monitoring surveyor and project & cost management (QS) services on development projects nationwide.
“This is obviously a huge success for our business and demonstrates our capability to be competitive with some of the UK’s best-known consultants,” said cost and project management director, Mitch Dale. “Our relationship with Homes England actually extends some ten years, including delivering our first scheme at Booth Rise in Northampton through to our most recent project of 138 new homes now underway in Upton, Northamptonshire. We look forward to continuing this longstanding partnership by working collaboratively to tackle the national housing shortage.”
In place until 2025, the framework is designed to enable Homes England to drive positive change, release developable land, improve existing affordable housing stock and build new homes. It is also available for use by other public sector organisations seeking consultancy support.
Mitch continues: “As reported earlier this year, we’ve made some significant changes to our division including new staff and senior promotions so securing this framework certainly helps consolidate this growth. In fact, since being made aware of our success, we took the decision to continue recruiting and have appointed two new team members. With the framework only being formalised recently, we’re confident we now have the right balance of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm and welcome the opportunity to get underway.”
rg+p’s QS team has a well-established and trusted track record delivering affordable, build to rent and new build housing schemes across the country. Some of its flagship projects include 518 units at Brooklands, Milton Keynes for Paradigm Housing; a 300 unit joint venture in Suffolk; 250 units across multiple sites for Citizen Housing using off-site manufacturing; and 158 units in Rugby for Midland Heart. The team is also appointed on an additional eight frameworks for some of the UK’s largest housing providers.
