Ashfield appointed as Framework Contractor for five-year development programme - Ashfield Building Group

Ashfield Building Group are delighted to announce another major step in the company’s growth following our appointment as a Framework Contractor for an ambitious five-year development programme launched by Northallerton-based Brierley Homes.

Following an extensive tendering process, Ashfield were selected as a preferred supplier for a series of new build housing developments which will range in size from single properties to 300+ homes, including associated infrastructure works. Brierley Homes is founded and owned by North Yorkshire County Council, but operates independently. The company has plans to deliver a wide range of high quality, bespoke homes that will meet the aspirations of buyers throughout the region. Activity will be predominantly concentrated in North Yorkshire with typical schemes of between 15 to 20 units and potentially in excess of 50 sites requiring development.

Ashfield Building Group Director, Joel Ramsden, said:

“This is a huge achievement for Ashfield Building Group. We were competing with some of the region’s largest contractors and being one of just six companies selected for Brierley Homes’ Principal Contractors Framework reflects the enormous strides that Ashfield have made in recent years with regard to our operational systems, including the development and certification of our ISO 9001 Quality Management System last year. ISO 9001 qualification has given the company outstanding credibility when tendering for large contracts of this nature. ISO 18001 & 45001 are next scheduled to be certificated by Q2 of this year.

“Brierley Homes is commencing a very exciting initiative which will transform the provision of new homes in North Yorkshire with a wide range of properties introduced to the sales and lettings market. It will also deliver major benefits beyond the housing sector, with any surplus income going back to North Yorkshire County Council to support essential services, so Ashfield are very pleased to have the opportunity to play a part in this far-reaching programme of regional investment and renewal.”

Brierley Homes’ Framework will run for five years, with an option to extend for a further period of five one-year increments.  Details on the company’s current range of homes are available at
