Eric Wright Construction has been successfully appointed to Lot 2 and Lot 4 of the JV North framework which will see the firm deliver new build houses and flats, plus refurbishment, alterations and remodelling for a consortium of nine major housing associations.

Lot 2 covers Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire with a project value between £200,000 and £1m per project. Lot 4 covers projects valued at more than £3m in the North West and the West Midlands.

Eric Wright Construction has also been successfully appointed to the City West Housing Trust Construction Work Framework which covers residential housing, commercial buildings and extra care facilities in Manchester, Stockport and Swinton.

Eight contractors have been appointed to the framework which will deliver projects valued between £1m and £5m.

Finally, Eric Wright Partnerships, a division which marked its first anniversary in January 2013, has been appointed to the Homes & Communities Agency framework to develop housing across the North West, North East and Yorkshire and Humber.

The firm joined forces with registered housing provider, Your Housing Group, to bid for the contract which is expected to see £1bn spent during a four-year period. Twenty five contractors have been appointed to the framework.

Jeremy Hartley, managing director at the Eric Wright Group, said: “These bidding processes can take a substantial amount of time and I am thrilled that our name is officially in the hat for such a large number of projects across the North of the country.

“We were up against some tough competition and to have secured a slot on three four-year frameworks is great news for the business and will no doubt provide a number of opportunities once we begin to start work.”
