That framework is worth £1.3bn and Sutcliffe anticipates winning contracts to the value of up to £6.8m over the next four years. It hasn’t specified the value of this latest framework win to the firm.

Sutcliffe will deliver civil and structural engineering and site investigation, as well as principal design services for a range of clients between the North West and North East.

The firm has designed more than 10,000 houses per year in the last five years, and with 90% of its housing schemes benefiting those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Recent affordable housing projects include developments such as Longshaw Drive, Salford with contractors Seddons, Preston Regeneration for Onward Homes and Ivy Road, Macclesfield for Peaks and Plains Housing Trust.
