England – PBA, now part of Stantec, has been reappointed to the Homes England Multidisciplinary Framework to support the delivery of housing to meet government targets.
PBA has been a member of the Homes England framework panel since 2014. The existing framework was due for renewal at the end of 2018 and we have been successful in tendering for the new Framework appointment.
Homes England, the government’s housing accelerator, aims to intervene in the market to ensure more homes are built in areas of greatest need and improve affordability by creating a more resilient and diverse housing market.
Commenting on the reappointment, Michael Parkinson, Director, North and Scotland, said:
“We’re delighted to have been reappointed to the multidisciplinary framework. Our teams around the country are committed to the work they do for Homes England and it’s great to know this work and the relationships we’ve built over the last four years will continue. PBA looks forward to supporting and furthering Homes England’s aspirations for the duration of the framework.”
Since 2014, PBA has been appointed to many projects through the framework ranging from high level due diligence advice to detailed design and delivery schemes. We have worked for both Homes England and other public sector organisations who are also able to procure services through the framework.
Stephen Kinsella, Executive Director for Land, at Homes England, said:
“We want to work with ambitious partners who can help us accelerate housing development, deliver value for money, use their skills, knowledge and capacity to significantly increase housing delivery across the country.
“Members appointed to the new Framework bring with them a wealth of knowledge and housing expertise that will enhance the work of Homes England. This will help us meet our ambition to accelerate housebuilding and deliver the 300,000 homes needed each year by the mid-2020s.”
PBA is named as one of 20 specialists on the new multidisciplinary panel. Our appointment includes a selection of named sub-consultants.
