The i-Flair consortium which represents a number of local Housing Associations based in East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and Renfrewshire published a Prior Information Notice (PIN) on Public Contract Scotland (PCS) on Monday 19th August 2019 for its highly successful property investment and maintenance related Framework for 2020 - 2024.
The Framework involves eight Housing Associations who own and manage approximately 10,000 houses across the three Local Authority areas. The Framework is now entering its third iteration having been tendered in 2011 and 2015 and has been used to deliver approximately £80m worth of investment in the iFlair members housing stock.
The Contract Notice for the Framework is due to be published in October 2019. However in advance of this a Meet the Buyer Event is being held at 11.00 BST on Thursday 29th August 2019 at the Tweedie Hall, Linwood.
The Framework is being administered on behalf of the Associations by Renfrewshire based Quantity Surveyors A.D.A Construction Consultants.
A.D.A owner Alan Shanks commented “The Framework is a great vehicle for the i-Flair members to deliver high quality investment and services to the Associations customers, which have mainly been undertaken by small and medium sized Contractors during the current Framework. The new Framework will build on the success of the first two Framework Agreements and it is anticipated that the Framework may deliver upwards of £60m of investment and services.”
“The Contractors who have been involved in the previous Frameworks are a huge part of the success and i-Flair welcome interest from both existing and new contractors in the 2020-2024 Framework Agreement. Any Contractors wishing to apply should register their interest in the PIN on PCS to obtain more information and how to attend our upcoming Meet the Buyer Event”.
i-Flair members are made up of Barrhead, Bridgewater, Cloch, Ferguslie Park, Linstone, Oak Tree, Paisley and Williamsburgh Housing Associations.
