Thirteen Housing Group Ltd | Published May 21, 2014 - Deadline June 26, 2014
Environmental issues consultancy services. Project management consultancy services. Thirteen Housing Group Ltd was created from the merger of Tees Valley based organisations Fabrick Housing Group and Vela Group.
The group owns and manages more than 32,000 homes from an area spanning North Tyneside to York, making it the largest registered housing provider in the North East, and in the top 25 nationally. It is also one of the ten largest employers in the North East.
Former companies Fabrick and Vela merged to become new parent company Thirteen Housing Group Ltd. Their partner landlords, Erimus Housing and Tees Valley Housing, formerly in Fabrick and Housing Hartlepool and Tristar Homes, formerly in Vela, remain separate successful organisations in their own right but are part of the larger group. Thirteen offers strategic direction and drives the vision for the partnership, overseeing the partner organisations in the group.
As part of the move, plans are being developed to create Thirteen Care and Support, a new housing support arm, bringing together the services of the supported housing team of Tees Valley Housing and Norcare, a former Tyneside based charity.
The move means expertise; resources and costs can be shared, achieving savings without reducing services and allowing the landlords to focus on the needs of their tenants and neighbourhoods.
The concluded contract will be in the name of Thirteen Housing Group Ltd and will be available to all current and future Group members.
The Group intends to engage the services of a Landscape Consultant to deliver and support a diverse range of environmental projects.
Over the term of the contract it is expected that the Group will spend in excess of GBP 10 million delivering environmental schemes.
— The length of the contract will be five (5) years, with an option to extend for a further two (2) years at the sole discretion of the Group
— The contract will be awarded to one supplier
