LONDON, 29 June 2022 – Cushman & Wakefield has been reappointed to Homes England Property and Financial Professional Services Framework following a competitive tender process. The framework provides Cushman & Wakefield with preferred supplier status across England for the next four years.
The reappointment puts Cushman & Wakefield at the centre of delivering the government’s Levelling Up Agenda as it assists Homes England to meet its expanded role to regenerate England’s towns and cities.
Homes England is the government’s housing and regeneration agency, targeting positive market change and the property-led regeneration of towns and cities across the country, helping to improve neighbourhoods and grow thriving communities.
The Homes England Property and Financial Professional Services Framework will be used to procure property-related professional, technical, and financial services on land owned by Homes England, as well as other public bodies.
Paul Wickenden from Cushman & Wakefield’s Residential Development team said: “Homes England is an important client of Cushman & Wakefield, having worked with the organisation and its predecessors for over 30 years to deliver exciting projects and innovative solutions to the challenges presented by the UK housing market.
“Homes England’s remit has never been more important, as evidenced by its changing focus to regeneration and supporting the delivery of the Levelling Up agenda. We are excited to continue our work with Homes England, helping towns and cities to thrive and provide much needed housing.”
John Keyes, Chair of Public Sector UK, Cushman & Wakefield, said: “This is an important competitive reappointment for Cushman & Wakefield, continuing our mandate with Homes England and further strengthening our experience working with government and public sector organisations to deliver on ambitious and large-scale projects.”
Cushman & Wakefield is appointed to numerous public sector frameworks and works extensively with clients across central and local government and the health and education sectors. The firm advises the public sector not only as occupiers of commercial property but also on how best to use the private sector to viably deliver its policy aims, from housing delivery to social care to urban regeneration.
