Scotland Excel


NBRC 2

Launched in August 2019 our innovative new framework for New Build Residential Construction was designed to significantly reduce the time it takes for councils and housing associations to engage a contractor and build new affordable homes. 

Fully compliant with EU and Scottish procurement regulations, our £1.5 billion framework is available to all of Scotland Excel’s members and associate members. It provides an efficient method of engaging contractors for works and services commonly required by councils and housing associations relating to the design and building of new residential properties and all enabling and ancillary works and services. 


5 compelling reasons staticWorking in partnership with 11 funding councils, we developed the groundbreaking framework to  support the Scottish Government’s £3bn Affordable Housing Supply Programme (AHSP) to deliver 50,000 affordable homes by 2021. Whilst the impact of Coronavirus has affected the target of the AHSP programme, there have been encouraging signs and the majority of construction projects have resumed.

Available builds

The type of properties that can be constructed under the framework include terraced, semi-detached and detached houses, cottage flats, bungalows and up to 5 storey flats, these can be called off using direct award or mini competition.  In addition members can also procure care homes, supported living accommodation, student accommodation and temporary accommodation.
