Framework fills the void for Housing Associations
Fusion21 are proud to launch their renewed Void Security & Management Framework.
With over 1.8 million families on waiting lists for homes in the UK, according to the National Housing Federation, it is essential that void properties are maintained and brought back to the market as soon as possible.
The Framework consists of three lots covering Void Security & Associated Works, Clearance Works (including grounds maintenance) and Minor Repairs (covering refurbishment and decoration works / vouchers).
Providing national coverage, the framework is available for either direct call-off or call-off after a mini competition between appointed contractors.
Keith Douglas, Framework Manager (Delivery) for Fusion21, said: “We can help minimise turnaround time to reduce rent loss and ensure effective use is made of housing stock. That can be a large volume or deliver a tailored service for smaller associations.”
Camelot Europe features on the framework as a supply partner.
Tina Scarrott, Regional Director said:
Those commissioning services through the Voids Management framework will also be entering the spirit of the Public Service (Social Value) Act as Fusion21 is a dedicated social enterprise, ploughing all of its profits back into the communities of its members.
“Our supply partners include small and medium sized enterprises across many regions which can provide a real local service and keep neighbourhood economies healthy,” adds Keith.
Fusion21 is a social enterprise that promotes bespoke procurement services to generate savings for the public sector. All profits are ploughed back into communities to create social value in terms of job opportunities and community regeneration.
Since 2002 Fusion21 has gained national recognition for its collaborative approach; delivering over £100m savings through the procurement process, creating over 1900 jobs and generating an estimated financial benefit in excess of £30m through regular paid work and reductions in benefit claims.
