This lot of the framework, which will run for the next four years, covers the design and build of complex residential projects, which might include restricted and challenging sites and existing buildings.

The projects will range in size, but are generally expected to be for 20-50 units on each site and are likely to be in the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen areas.

Main contractor Clark Contracts recently worked with the independent housing charity on the £3 million conversion of the former Westwood House office block on Edinburgh’s Gorgie Road to create 47 mid-market rental flats.

Michael Scanlan, director at Clark Contracts, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with LAR Housing Trust by being appointed to this framework and we look forward to supporting them achieve their goals of developing 1,000 affordable homes across Scotland over the next few years.”

Ann Leslie, chief executive of LAR Housing Trust, added: “We were delighted with both the quality and quantity of interest in our framework. We have worked hard to build a reputation in the construction sector over the last four years and it is now paying dividends.

“We look forward to working with our partners going forward.”
