East: Derbyshire East, Durham, Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and Yorkshire

West: Cheshire, Cumbria, Derbyshire West, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and Staffordshire

Commenting on the appointment, Erol Erturan, MD of Adept Consulting Engineers, said: “We look forward to helping the framework members deliver high quality homes across the northwest and northeast. Our team offers expert consultancy for every aspect of civil and structural engineering, and we will use our cross-sector experience to support the diverse needs of each housing provider. We hope these new developments generate wider community transformations through beneficial environmental and social initiatives.”

Joanne Whitehead, Great Places’ Development Performance Manager, responsible for managing the framework, added: “We are delighted to be working with Adept 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.”
