Higgins Group has been appointed to the East and South East Panel of preferred contractors by the Homes and Communities Agency for the next four years.
HCA’s third generation Delivery Partner Panel (DDP3) will be used to deliver an estimated £8bn residential-led development programme on public sector land.
Richard Higgins, Chairman of Higgins Group commented, “We are delighted to be named as a preferred contractor on the East and South East Delivery Partner Panel for the HCA and look forward to working with local authorities and other public sector bodies to deliver more homes and sustainable communities.”
DPP3 is available free of charge to a wide range of local authorities, registered providers and other public sector bodies including central government departments, NHS Trusts and educational establishments to help them streamline their procurement process. By providing access to a pre-qualified list of housing developers, the panel makes procurement far more efficient, delivering significant time, cost and resource savings.
DPP3 builds on the HCA’s experience of operating its first and second partner panels, which have so far delivered over 43,500 homes, through 258 schemes over seven years.
