Natta is delighted to announce that we have been appointed to VIVID Housing Association’s Contractors Framework.
Earlier in the year, Natta was one of the several bidders who tendered for the inclusion on the Contractors Framework Agreement.
The tender process required organisations to demonstrate their track record for delivering a fully constructed design and build housing scheme. The process covered the range of both pre-construction, on-site construction and complete aftercare services.
We are now one of nineteen contractors and developers who has successfully been awarded a place on the VIVID Framework. The Framework is expected to run until 2022.
Matt Sainty, Commercial Director commented, “We are very pleased to have been selected by VIVID for this framework. We hope that we will be successful in procuring a significant proportion of the available projects and become a preferred delivery partner going forward.”
VIVID is a newly launched housing association formed from the merger of First Wessex and Sentinel Housing Association. They are a registered provider and the largest housing association in Hampshire. Currently, they are managing around 30,000 homes and services and have over 1,000 members of staff.
With a strong commitment to the community, they endeavour to build more affordable homes to all. So far they have built 749 homes between 2017 and 2018 with more to come. Like Natta, they are committed to tackling the challenge of rising homelessness. According to Vivid, in Hampshire alone, last year there were more than 930 households in temporary accommodation at any one time.
We look forward to working with VIVID to meet their targets of delivering 1,200 new homes over the coming 4 years.
