AG secures place on £560m framework

Preston-based AG Project + Building Consultancy (AG), has secured a place on the JV North framework - a consortium of housing associations and local authorities.

The £560m framework will enable its partners to build approximately 4,000 homes from now to the end of 2025.

The JV North consortium is one of the biggest developers of new social homes in the UK, and its members are building the equivalent of 3.5 homes every day.

Consortium 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.

AG, which has operations in Preston, Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield, is one of eight employers’ agents to secure a place on the framework.

Managing director Jonathan Shaw 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.”
