ICNW was first established in 2012 and the first framework expired in 2016. The framework has been a great success and has seen throughput in excess of £380million and the completion of more than 4000 units across Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire.  Clients of the framework include: Great Places Housing Group; Plus Dane Housing Group Limited; Halton Housing Trust Limited; Bolton At Home; Adactus Housing Association Limited; Wulvern Housing Limited; Cheshire Peaks & Plains Housing Trust; Your Housing Group Limited; Equity Housing Association Limited;  Calico Homes, Mosscare and Rochdale Boroughwide Housing Limited.

We have just completed the procurement of the second framework and we are aiming to have it up and running by 4th July 2016. This framework has been set up and will be managed by Great Places Housing Group and we are expecting the same clients to procure through the framework as last time. We are hoping to see throughput of up to £500million. 

The successful contractors and consultants are shown here:

The framework is open to all those who seek to deliver mixed use housing within the geographical regions identified on each Lot. All RP’s registered with the HCA can use the framework, along with their subsidiaries.  If you are interested in joining the framework, you will find further details of who to contact using the “Contact Us” link above.

Embracing new technologies and house types, we deliver quality, sustainable homes that are cheaper to run and future–proof.

Objectives of the Framework:


Establish and maintain sound and stable relationships between the clients and service providers of the framework by supporting the delivery, implementation and completion of projects to the required quality, on programme and within budget.

Demonstrate value for money and drive down costs in real terms by maximising the efficiencies of scale, volume, rationalisation and certainty.

Optimise opportunities for partnership working and innovation by participating in research, knowledge share and learning processes.

Maximise social value opportunities that directly benefit the client’s residents, concentrating on the principles of education, employment and training.
