The MMC lot was part of a wider OJEU procurement process for a £2bn main contractor framework on which 41 contactors were appointed across eight regional lots around London, Kent, the South and Midlands. The scope of works will differ under each contract, but the programme primarily covers construction works for new build residential with the possibility of some ancillary retail and commercial development.
Stephen McMorris, director of development and sales at Hyde, said: “We went through a stringent process of appointing partners who have each demonstrated a commitment to providing quality services, delivering value for money and working collaboratively. We look forward to working more closely with our partners who will help us achieve our ambition of building as many homes as we can across London and the south east.”
Hyde owns or manages more than 50,000 homes and plans to build 11,000 in the five years of the framework.

IMH can build a home in four days. Luke Barnes, founder and CEO of Ideal Modular Homes, said: “ We are looking forward to delivering high-quality sustainable homes to fulfill Hyde’s housing requirements and showcase how affordable homes can be beautiful”.
