Wood re-appointed to multimillion-dollar Homes England framework to support housing growth

Wood has been re-appointed by Homes England to its multidisciplinary  framework to provide technical advice, consulting services,  and design input to help prepare brownfield and surplus public sector land for  residential development.

Homes England is the UK Government’s  housing accelerator with objectives to ensure more homes are built in areas of  greatest need and improve affordability by creating a more resilient and  diverse housing market. The four-year programme will enable procurement of  £100m ($130m) worth of services and will also be available to other public  sector bodies.

Wood has an established 20-year  relationship with Homes England and predecessors, and has supported many of its  major programmes with a diverse range of environmental, planning, engineering  and design services, working collaboratively alongside its other strategic  partners to help deliver better homes faster. Drawing on its broad Environment  & Infrastructure Solutions capability, Wood is committed to serving the  wider UK public sector through several major consultancy frameworks providing  effective procurement routes for its services.

Ann Massey, CEO of Wood’s Environment &  Infrastructure Solutions business, said: “This contract aligns closely with our  strategic commitment to the UK infrastructure market and reflects Homes  England’s continued trust in our ability to support its accelerated  housebuilding programme. Some 300,000 new homes will be needed each year by the  mid-2020s. 


“We look forward to helping Homes England deliver  them as part of our overall commitment to enhancing UK infrastructure from housing  and transportation to water, energy and waste.”
