Network Housing reveals framework architects

  • Comment

Stirling Prize-winner Haworth Tompkins and Weston Williamson are among 17 practices chosen for a high-profile social housing framework in the capital

The two studios – along with PRP, HTA and a raft of other residential experts – have all been earmarked for future work by Network Housing which currently develops 1,000 dwellings a year.

The four-year framework will allow the housing association to ‘procure new schemes faster’ and avoid having to tender design contracts individually.

Smaller housing associations, local councils and NHS Trusts are also able to use the framework.

Set up in 1974, Network Housing now owns and manages around 19,000 homes in London, Hertfordshire and the South East.

Around 58 practices from the UK, Portugal and Hungary applied for the new framework.

Only 26 met the qualifying threshold to submit tenders and 17 were eventually selected.

Group development director Vicky Savage said: ‘I am delighted with the high calibre of firms who have successfully made our framework.

‘I am confident the firms will work closely with us to produce outstanding award winning designs which our customers will feel proud to live in.’

Tranter McManus Architects director Judith Tranter said: ‘We are delighted to be selected to work with Network on their Architects’ Framework over the next four years.

‘We look forward to working pro-actively with Vicky Savage and the team to design new homes that are distinctive, affordable and great to live in.’

Wai Lun Ho, associate director at PCKO Architects, added: ‘We are thrilled to be chosen by Network for their new framework and look forward to creating new, innovative homes and memorable places where people live, work and simply enjoy.’

The 17 teams have been invited to a seminar with Network Housing this month.
