Seddon secures place on £63 million Midlands framework

Builder and developer Seddon has secured a place on Central Housing Investment Consortium’s (CHIC) planned maintenance framework which is expected to see £63 million of work released over the next four to six years.

The appointment will see the company, which has offices in Birmingham and Stoke, deliver replacement kitchens and bathrooms for social housing providers across the Midlands and beyond.

Central Housing Investment Consortium was founded in 2010 by seven Midlands-based housing associations and now has 38 members, collectively managing over 450,000 units across England and Wales.

The win builds on the company’s recent expansion in the region, with the appointment of Eamonn Burns, Regional Director for the Midlands, and the purchase of new offices in Birmingham.

Seddon unveiled ambitious plans last year to grow its turnover in the region to £100 million by 2019.

Eamonn Burns, Regional Director at Seddon, said: "This latest framework appointment builds on a number of contract wins for Seddon in the Midlands as we look to grow our turnover in the region. 

"We are delighted to have secured this framework win and look forward to working with CHIC’s 38 members to deliver high-quality refurbishment projects.

"Hopefully this will be the first of many social housing framework wins for Seddon as we continue to grow.”

John Fisher Managing Director of CHIC said: "CHIC’s new planned maintenance frameworks will help to secure additional savings for affordable housing providers across the midlands and beyond. To date CHIC Members have saved £17.75M against a target of £8.5M and we expect this to increase as existing and future members utilise CHIC’s new offerings.”
