Catalyst Housing has launched an architectural services framework worth between £20 and 100 million
The framework will run for four years and will cover a range of major regeneration and refurbishment projects featuring affordable rented homes, low-cost home ownership, private sale and mixed-tenure units.
The project is part of Catalyst Housing’s plans to deliver 1,000 new homes every year by 2020. The framework comes two years after Alison Brooks Architects’ 44-unit Ely Court development in South Kilburn (pictured) for the housing association won an RIBA Award.
In its brief, Catalyst Housing says it has ‘a pipeline target of delivering 1,000 homes per year by 2020. The requirements include mainly the provision of new homes including affordable rented accommodation, low-cost home ownerships, private sale, mixed tenure schemes and some major refurbishment and regeneration.
‘The critical part of its successful delivery is putting in place a long-term arrangement with a selected number of key partners to better reflect our evolving needs. The authority is seeking to establish a framework agreement for a period of four years for architectural services including landscape design, garage design, masterplanning and high density.’
Catalyst Housing was created in 2002 following a merger with the Kensington Housing Trust and Northcote Housing Association.
Today it is part of the UK’s G15 group of leading housing associations and manages more than 21,000 homes in London and the South East.
The organisation plans to deliver 7,000 new homes by 2020, housing more than 21,000 people and is currently working on 12 separate developments across the country.
The new framework will focus on refurbishment, regeneration and new-build projects providing new homes for affordable rent, low-cost sale and private sale.
The deadline for applications is midday, 7 September.
