Framework agreement with Notting Hill Genesis will run for at least four years.

Specialist contracting group O'Keefe has won a framework agreement potentially worth up to £50 million with Notting Hill Genesis (NHG), a Top 5 provider of social housing in the UK.

The agreement, for the delivery of demolition and complex enabling works, has the potential to involve all of O'Keefe's four business divisions (London, Kent, Demolition and Plant), and will run for four years, with the possibility of another four.

Formed just 18 months ago from the merger of Notting Hill Housing and Genesis Housing Association, the organisation is one of the largest housing associations in London and the south-east, providing homes for around 170,000 people in some 55,000 properties across the capital and a further 9,000 in the home counties and East Anglia.

More than half its homes are general needs properties, charged at social or affordable rent levels, but it also offers extra care and supported accommodation for older people and other vulnerable groups, as well as temporary housing, shared ownership, private rental, student accommodation and commercial properties.

Notting Hill Genesis re-invests all of its surpluses into providing more homes for lower income households. The framework agreement with the O'Keefe group, which was won competitively, kicks off late this year. Projects over the four to eight-year period range from £50,000 of site clearance to £10 million of piling and enabling works.

O'Keefe managing director Patrick O'Keefe said: “Winning this framework agreement with Notting Hill Genesis has not just been about the money, although that is obviously welcome. It is also about working with an organisation which brings a commercial and pragmatic approach, that is nonetheless sensitive, to providing homes for lower-income households.”
