Home Group is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced Contractors for the delivery of responsive repairs, void property works, planned works and compliance works (including building safety and fire safety works) to its circa 6,000 properties dispersed throughout Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. The properties are a mixture of tenures consisting of general needs, market rented, leasehold and shared ownership. Home Group have an active development programme within the contract area and additional properties may be added to the contract as they come out of their defects liability periods. In addition, Home Group may also add properties from adjoining areas into the scope of the contract at their discretion. The Contract will be awarded for an initial period of 10 years, with the option to extend until 26th October 2037 at Home Group's sole discretion. Although initially centred on the delivery of repairs, voids, compliance and planned works the contract has the provision to add in multiple additional workstreams during its term including (but not limited to) commercial boiler maintenance, cyclical maintenance services, building safety works, fire safety works and retrofit renewable technologies as set out in the procurement documents. The value of the core services (i.e. those services included in scope from contract commencement) is circa £6.1 million per annum and the total potential value of the contract with all options included is circa £250m over the whole term (including all possible extensions to 2037). Home Group intends to utilise either a Joint Venture Company or a Wholly Owned Subsidiary model for the delivery of the contract. The contractual structure of these two potential options is explained in more detail in the "Alternative Delivery Model Contract Structure" section of the Descriptive Document (Section 3.4). The procurement is being undertaken using a "Competitive Dialogue" procedure (in accordance with Regulation 30 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015).
