M&Y Construction has secured a place on the £1.5bn Innovation Chain North Framework.

A division of affordable housing group Regenda, M&Y says the framework will span the next four years. It secures its role in delivering construction and maintenance services across the North West of England.

From a competitive pool of 206 applicants, M&Y Construction was one of the 103 selected contractors and consultants. M&Y stood out due to its “technical competence, past delivery, competitive pricing, and its commitment to social value”.

Chris Mellor, construction director at M&Y, said: “It is amazing news that M&Y has been awarded a place on the re-procurement of the ICN framework.

“Not only have we secured a place once again onto the framework, but we are also now appointed onto the H1 lot which will allow us to tender for projects 35 homes and above, highlighting our growth and development since the last tender.”

Under the previous ICN framework, M&Y Construction secured a £7.9m contract for the Shevington Extra Care scheme, in partnership with Wigan Council.

The re-appointment, coupled with the eligibility to tender for larger contracts, is pivotal in supporting M&Y’s ambitious growth objectives.

Joanne Whitehead, development performance manager at Great Places Housing Group which manages the framework, added: “We are delighted to be working with M&Y Maintenance and Construction on our new ICN framework.

“We are confident they will be able to work with us and the clients of ICN in delivering the sector’s extensive development ambitions in the North.”

The new ICN framework, compliant with the Public Contract Regulations (PCR) 2015, is designed to support the delivery of new homes and associated social infrastructure across the North of England.

The previous iteration of the framework (2020-2024) saw 35 client members procure approximately 5,000 affordable homes, with a spend of £650m. The ICN supply chain delivered over £20m in added social value.
