JV North is currently managing a four-year contractors’ and consultants’ framework – the latest chapter in its long history of delivering social housing that has seen it build one home a day with Homes England since 2007.

In July 2017, JV North announced the successful applicants for stage one with works valued at £1 million and over.

The second stage is now open and for the first time, SME contractors are invited to apply using the Dynamic Purchasing System for works up to £1 million.

SMEs can apply to join at any time throughout the four-year framework (until 2021) via the In-Tend procurement portal.

JV North is investing more than £480 million to build over 3,800 homes under Homes England’s 2016/21 Shared Ownership Affordable Homes Programme.

Based on previous experience it is anticipated circa 2,000 of these properties will be delivered through this new framework.

The new framework is valued at £180 million and will run until June 2021.
