This appointment sees Higgins add to its portfolio of framework places with recent successes on The Hyde Group Main Contractor Framework and Islington Council New Build Construction Framework.

Steve Leakey, Managing Director of Higgins said, “With our wealth of experience and knowledge of new build and refurbishment schemes, we are pleased once again to be appointed to this framework and look forward to working with The Connected Partnership to deliver its significant development programme to build genuinely affordable, high quality homes for London.

“We are very proud to have secured a ranking of second place out of the twelve successful bidders and be recognised for delivering high quality, competitive projects.”

The Connected Partnership focuses primarily on new build accommodation for private rent, private sale, intermediate, shared ownership and affordable rent through both Connected-led and Section 106 schemes. Connected also produces care schemes and some community, retail and commercial buildings.  In addition, Connected delivers regeneration schemes.

With nearly 60 years’ experience, Higgins has an established reputation for delivering both new build and refurbishment solutions together in partnership. It is committed to delivering exceptional estate regeneration schemes by creating thriving communities in which people can live, work, learn and play and which they are proud to be part of.
