18 January 2019 | By Neil Gerrard

Greenwich council in London is seeking an offsite housing firm to build offsite homes in the borough under a deal worth £320m.

The council said it was seeking a single “turnkey” provider that can design, manufacture and install new homes using predominantly offsite manufactured products and systems.

A contract notice published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) said: “The provider will be required to provide a full design service and act as principal designer. The provider shall undertake feasibility studies and develop schemes through the RIBA Plan of Work Stages 1-4 including obtaining full planning consent. The provider shall manufacture OSM buildings and undertake all site construction to deliver new homes (RIBA Plan of Work stages 5-7). 

Orders for the homes will be placed for an initial term of five years up to a maximum 10-year term, resulting in up to 13 years’ work due to delivery timescales.

The time limit for the receipt of tenders is 1 March this year.

Truly exciting times in the MMC sector and this is such a well deserved boost for a long overdue shift in thinking. MMC has so many massive advantages and so few detractions it can only exponentially gain momentum.
