SNG appoints contractors to deliver ambitious sustainable development plans

Housing association SNG (Sovereign Network Group) has announced the appointment of 16 building contractors to work on its growing new homes programme with a total potential value of £800 million over four years. 

The appointment of the contractors forms part of SNG’s ambition to deliver 25,000 new homes over the next ten years that meet its bold Homes and Place Standard for high quality, environmentally sustainable homes within thriving communities.  

Support for shared values was a key part of how and why the winning bidders were successful with the contractors scored and selected on a rigorous set of criteria including quality, social value, sustainability, health and safety, strong financial standing, contract management and pricing.  

Tom Titherington, Chief Investment and Development Officer at SNG, said: “This is a crucial step towards delivering our ambitious plans for thousands of good, affordable, new homes that are desperately needed and I’m pleased we now have a framework in place with some of the best home builders in the industry. We are a long-term business that has invested in understanding what makes a good home and place to live, so it is critical that our partners share our vision of building high quality, sustainable homes that will form thriving communities over generations.”  

The contractors chosen in this agreement will cover the South and South West of England including Oxfordshire, Hampshire, across to Devon and Gloucestershire. Successful contractors include Vistry Partnerships, Hill Holdings, Thakeham and EG Carter. 

Within the homes built SNG includes plans to replace older homes that cannot reasonably meet its customers’ needs against the Homes and Place Standard. Under the current company investment strategy, over 3,000 properties are forecast to be built through this framework.
