Propeller Studios has successfully supported many house builders to secure new development opportunities working with Housing Associations and councils.
For instance we have provided a quality tender writing service for an Irish Contractor with a turnover of £50M and secured contract opportunities and tenders to a value of £27M. We have assisted a Southampton based Regional House Builder pre qualify and secure contracts for Hyde Housing, Southampton City Council and Radian.
We have expertise in tendering for traditional and design and house building contracts whether for social rent, affordable rent, shared ownership or open market sale. We also have expertise in the growing extra care and dementia housing sectors.
It is essential for contractors wishing to win work in this sector to have a robust bid strategy which ensures you put your energy into the right bids and that the bid process is managed effectively and results in well structured, well presented, compelling and compliant tenders that leave your prospect in no doubt that your company represents best value for money and will deliver their project on time, on budget and to the best quality.
