Muse and Lovell appointed to Homes England’s new delivery partner framework
Muse Developments – one of the UK’s best town and city-centre regenerators – and sister company, leading provider of partnership and open-market housing, Lovell, have both been appointed to Homes England’s national Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the next 10 years.
The Delivery Partner DPS will build on the work already done through Homes England’s Delivery Partner Panel (DPP3) and will look to make the procurement of a developer as quick and efficient as possible, to accelerate the delivery of residential-led development on land owned by public-sector bodies. The new framework will also allow Homes England to control the speed, quality and type of scheme that comes forward.
Muse has a 40-year track record of delivering major, multi-phased mixed-use schemes and mixed-tenure homes that drive investment and prosperity right into the heart of communities.
This year Lovell are proudly celebrating 50 years of working in partnership with housing associations and local authorities, creating places where communities can thrive, and people can enjoy a strong sense of belonging.
Muse and Lovell are part of Morgan Sindall Group plc, the leading construction and regeneration group.
Speaking on the appointment, Muse’s managing director, Matt Crompton, said: “To be named on this national framework with Homes England is testament to the tenacity of everyone at Muse. We’ve been working hard throughout the pandemic, in partnership, to help repurpose and regenerate communities and deliver direct benefits to them.
“We’re proud to support Homes England and bring both our track record, resources and expertise to help them accelerate the delivery of much-needed residential-led development in our towns and cities across England as they will be the catalyst to the country’s economic recovery.”
Steve Coleby, managing director of Lovell, said: “Being appointed onto the Homes England framework is something we at Lovell are very proud of. Creating homes and communities that have a positive impact on people’s lives has been at the heart of our business for 50 years and this partnership will ensure that we continue to have the opportunity to
use our expertise to build and regenerate spaces that have a long-lasting impact on society.
“The DPS framework is the largest of its kind and provides many exciting future development opportunities, supporting us to achieve our purpose of transforming communities through innovative new residential construction and regeneration programmes and delivering much needed housing across England.”
