Bangor based engineering, environmental and planning consultancy, Caulmert, has been reappointed to Adra’s Construction Consultancy Framework.
Caulmert will provide Planning Consultancy, Engineering and Principal Designer services to North Wales’ largest social housing provider through the second iteration of the framework.
Up to £3.5 million worth of consultancy work for new affordable housing developments is expected to be procured through the four-year framework.
Caulmert previously delivered almost 40 projects through the inaugural framework, including planning services for an Extra Care scheme in Pwllheli and new build homes in Trefnant; and planning and engineering services on the redevelopment of Bangor Social Club to create affordable homes.
The framework will be used to select construction consultants for Adra’s development and refurbishment programmes.
Adra manages 6,300 homes across North Wales and plans to build 1,350 new homes in the next 10 years.
Caulmert MD, Mike Caulfield, said “We are delighted to have been reappointed to the Adra Framework. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team for the past four years.
We also share a commitment to the local area and, where possible, we always strive to deliver additional economic and social benefits in North Wales. Almost half of Caulmert staff live in North Wales and 75% of our supply chain is from the area meaning money spent on Adra developments stays in the local area.”
Adra Senior Development Surveyor, Ian Gillespie, said “Adra is pleased Caulmert has once again qualified for our Consultation Framework and will continue our long-standing business relationship. We have worked together on many varied schemes in the past and hope to do so in the future.”
