Clancy Re-secures Top Spot on Affordable Homes Framework
Article posted on: 29th October 2020
Cunninghame Housing Association (CHA), the provider of more than 2,800 homes for rent in south-west Scotland, has re-appointed Clancy Consulting on its latest development framework.
The new consultancy framework has an estimated value of £4.15 million across its four-year lifetime providing new affordable homes throughout Ayrshire. This budget allocation will provide the design and delivery of around 500 new general-needs, amenity and specialist-needs homes, all much in demand across the region.
Successfully appointed to the framework for the second consecutive time, and positioned in the top spot, Clancy will provide civil and structural consultancy services which continues the significant residential sector growth across the Scottish region offices, located in Prestwick and Glasgow.
Currently at early design stage for CHA, Clancy is working in partnership with MAST Architects to develop the feasibility for Green Street, Saltcoats; a new 24-apartment affordable housing scheme designed for elderly-amenity residents. The scheme, which sits at the very centre of the community, has recently been made publicly available for consultation prior to a formal planning application being submitted.
Neil Orrock, Director at Clancy Consulting commented, “Our relationship with Cunninghame Housing Association stems back to 2010 so we’re thrilled to be reappointed to continue the successful partnership for the next four-year term. The key ambitions of CHA are to create strong communities and high-quality homes; with these principles sitting at the heart of every development brief. This is perfectly showcased in the latest scheme we are working on in Saltcoats which is an exemplar project and one which we look forward to delivering next year.”
Linda Anderson, Executive Director of Development Services at Cunninghame Housing Association states, “With strong submissions received across all Lots we are confident in selecting the very best consultants for our development programme over the next four years. Appointing Clancy, in addition to the other consultants, marks an exciting next chapter for the organisation in terms of our new build ambitions, and we look forward to working in partnership to provide quality homes and create strong neighbourhood communities to improve the wellbeing of our residents.”
