Cushman & Wakefield reappointed to Homes England Economics Panel

07/01/2021

Cushman & Wakefield has been reappointed to the national Homes England Economics Framework.

The new Strategic Research and Economic Analysis Professional Services Framework 2020-2024 is a national framework which any public body can now procure services from.

Services included as part of the framework include economic appraisal, business case development, impact assessment/evaluation and economic research/modelling.

Cushman & Wakefield has been providing economic appraisal and business case services to Homes England on the existing panel since 2018, with a key focus on supporting Homes England to secure investment to acquire sites and/or deliver infrastructure to unlock housing delivery. The firm is also leading a wider team comprising of consultancies, Capital Economics, GHD and ERS Ltd to provide a comprehensive offer across the spectrum of services.  

Ben Pretty, Partner at Cushman & Wakefield and Framework lead, said: “I am delighted we have been reappointed as a preferred advisor to Homes England on this prestigious national economics panel. Our combined economic and market facing property expertise means that we are very well placed to support Homes England’s housing delivery agenda going forward. Despite the current macro-economic instability, housing delivery remains a key national priority and Homes England’s role in promoting innovation/productivity and addressing failures within the market is critical to meet housing needs going forward.”

Keith Hardman, National Head of Development at Cushman & Wakefield, added: “I am very pleased by this further appointment which sits alongside and complements Cushman & Wakefield’s existing appointment to the Homes England Property Panel. It’s testament to the breadth of our development offer and our ability to articulate the intrinsic links between property related and economic outputs.”

Cushman & Wakefield has also recently been reappointed on long-term frameworks as retained advisors to the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership and the Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership. Its role will be to provide independent business case appraisal and wider economic development advice to inform LEP investment decision making.
