Lakehouse wins slice of £200m East London housing deal
6 Jul 2012
A group of six east London councils have named the contractors they intend to use for housing maintenance and new build work over the next four years. The East London Solutions procurement group, which includes the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest, will divide the haul of planned jobs between Lakehouse and three other contractors.
The Housing Construction Works Framework will cover large scale refurbishment projects and a backlog of Decent Homes work. There will also be a programme of new homes building work that the council aims to deliver using alternative financing with its contractor partners.
The forward funding is needed until surplus funds are available after year five of its planned investment programme.
