Through SCF Residential, public sector organisations can now access a full range of residential construction and development solutions. This includes access to leading local housebuilders; traditional contract or design and build and turnkey end-to-end development, construction, and management services.  A commitment to provide a trustworthy, equitable, and ethical vehicle for delivery underpins the framework.

SCF Residential will be tailored to suit a wide range of projects, including:

Larger value projects (65+ Units) – delivered in 3 sublots (SW, SE, London).

Smaller Value (10-75 Units) – delivered in 7 sublot regions, focused on local delivery.

SCF is the market leader in Two Stage Open Book (2SOB) tendering, under which the framework will operate exclusively.  This Government-recommended bidding process is part of an initiative to reform UK construction practices and is unique in the way it brings the contractor, stakeholders and suppliers together at the very start of a construction project.

Matthew Elliott, SCF Senior Framework Manager, said: “The successful bidders offer public sector organisations a fantastic breadth of experience and expertise ideally tuned to the needs of the current housing market.  We have built this framework around our ethos and practice of collaboration, transparency and added value, with a focus on social value and supporting carbon and environmental impacts.”

This new deal complements the current SCF Construct and SCF Consult frameworks which have delivered over £7 billion worth of combined construction schemes in the last 14 years since they were first established.
