Catalyst has announced a line-up of 22 building contractors for its new construction framework.

The new framework has a combined contract value of approximately £500 million over a four year period and will help Catalyst deliver affordable housing across London and the South East.

The successful contractors are also expected to help Catalyst’s projects bring benefits to the surrounding economy. Each new development will help create apprenticeship roles for local people and will make use of nearby supply chains where possible.

Tom Titherington, Executive Director of Property & Growth at Catalyst said: “Our new framework will help Catalyst drive better value for money and enable us to deliver even more great homes. We also have the benefit of working with contractors that we know and trust and that understand the importance of our core social purpose.”

For a fee, housing associations and public sector bodies will be able to access the framework for their own projects.

About Catalyst

Catalyst is one of the leading housing associations in London and the South East, managing over 21,000 rented and shared-ownership homes.

We are experts in placemaking and developing tenure-blind neighbourhoods, with a strategy in place that will see us build 1,000 homes a year by 2020.

Our approach to creative design, effective urban planning and high quality development is underpinned by our long-term interest in our neighbourhoods. By adopting a stewardship role, we ensure that the places we help to create are well maintained, look great and remain desirable places to live. A prime example of Catalyst’s work can be seen in our flagship regeneration project in North Kensington, Portobello Square.
