The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) helps create successful communities by making more homes and business premises available to the residents and businesses who need them. It focuses on the release of land for the delivery of housing.
PBA was appointed to the HCA multidisciplinary panel as a lead consultant from 2014–2018. Appointing us through the HCA helps the public sector save time and money on projects, including major development, due diligence, estate renewal and refurbishment.
"We have worked with PBA through a variety of projects ranging from high level pre-acquisition development constraints and viability appraisals, to detailed design and construction delivery. Throughout these schemes we have continued to be impressed with PBA’s consistent approach; understanding our aspirations, providing intelligent development advice and always delivering to meet the required timescales. PBA are a highly professional and knowledgeable team of consultants, with a wide range of expertise; they continue to provide a high quality, flexible and collaborative service." Lisa Broom, Homes and Communities Agency
We work with the HCA on national and regional levels. Public sector bodies can use our services via the HCA after signing an Access Agreement with the agency. Once the HCA has received the signed document, login details are provided to a secure website containing full information on how to use the multidisciplinary panels.
“In the run-up to the new financial year and with an election looming, the City of London Corporation required a Professional Services team to support the delivery of a politically vital project at short notice. The framework gave us access to suitably qualified suppliers; the flexibility to move quickly with challenging deadlines and enabled us to exceed stakeholder expectations”. Toni Peters, City of London Corporation
In alignment with the HCA terms and conditions, PBA Partner Michael Parkinson is our Designated Person to direct, control and manage the overall provision of services. He has full authority to act on behalf of PBA for all purposes in connection with the multidisciplinary contract.
