“To be appointed on ICN’s framework is a great achievement and affirms our commitment to building more affordable housing across the north of England, continuing Sutcliffe’s legacy of supplying affordable housing. We take immense pride in our contribution to essential projects across the country and as we continue to solidify our reputation as one of the most prolific and respected engineers in house building, I do not doubt that this appointment will help us continue to build more affordable homes for those who need them most.”

Joanne Whitehead, Great Places’ Development Performance Manager, responsible for managing the framework, added :

“We are delighted to be working with Sutcliffe on our new ICN framework. We are confident they will be able to work with us and the clients of ICN in delivering the sector’s extensive development ambitions in the North.”
