ForWorks secures two framework wins and expands into Wales

North West construction firm ForWorks has been appointed to two multi-million pound frameworks as the company continues to expand its commercial operations and moves into North Wales for the first time.

The maintenance and development firm, which launched in June 2015, has been appointed to three lots on the Undod £10.95 million Welsh Housing Framework and two lots on Fusion21’s circa £100,000 property retrofit framework.

Work across both frameworks will be released over the next four years.

The appointment to Undod’s framework will see ForWorks in line to deliver internal works, windows, doors and soffits projects, and responsive repairs works for social landlords in the Clwyd area of Wales.

The Fusion21’s framework will enable the firm to work with housing associations and local authorities across the North West and North Wales delivering external wall insulation and cladding works for its members.

Steve Parrington, Director of ForWorks, said: “Securing five lots on two separate frameworks is the latest in a series of wins that are paving the way for our ambitious growth plans.

“We are very proud that we are now expanding our operations into Wales, as we also continue to develop our reputation working across the North West region.

“These appointments highlight that we have the skills and the expertise to provide a first class service to both housing associations and other organisations operating in the public sector – helping to transform communities whilst delivering high-quality installation and refurbishment projects.”

The framework appointments builds on the firm’s recent contract wins worth £400,000 with social housing providers Pierhead Housing and First Choice Homes Oldham – to deliver a range of responsive repairs, maintenance and planned adaptation works.

ForWorks is a member of housing group ForViva, which owns and manages 18,000 homes across the North West.
