AG appointed to £560m housing framework

AG Project + Building Consultancy has been appointed to the £560m JV North framework, a consortium of housing associations and local authorities.

The framework is one of the biggest of its kind in the country and its objective is to build around 4,000 homes before the end of 2025.

Members include Bury Council, Johnnie Johnson Housing, One Manchester, Peaks and Plains Housing Trust, Muir Group, Plus Dane Housing, Sovini, Stockport Homes, Stockport Council, Torus, Trafford Housing Trust, Weaver Vale Housing Trust and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group.

They will call on framework partners to undertake the work, and Preston-based AG is one of eight organisations to secure a place in it.

Jonathan Shaw, AG managing director, said: "We’re proud to have been selected and look forward to playing our part in helping deliver quality affordable housing for people living in the North West.

“The inclusion to the framework aids our expansion into the housing sector, which is an important aspect of our growth plans. We look forward to working with the consortium members in not only creating quality housing but helping deliver projects that help rebuild communities.”
