Builder’s Profile Help Telford Homes to Build a ‘Living Legacy’
Telford Homes, one of London’s largest residential developers, has chosen Builder’s Profile to effectively assess and approve subcontractors to their own rigorous high standards – and to help build their ‘Living Legacy’.
Established in 2000 and in the top 20 of UK’s Housebuilder’s, Telford Homes has over 300 employees dedicated to developing the homes and creating the places that London needs. Focusing on brownfield sites, Telford Homes has a clear plan to significantly increase its output of new homes to the benefit of Londoners.
Their supply chain is a key part of Telford Home’s brand reputation and sustainability strategy; 80% of supply chain spend is with small & medium sized subcontractors, and £51m a year of spend is with businesses registered in London Boroughs. Telford’s regional supply chain policy bought with it a set of compliance and communications challenges which the Builder’s Profile service will address:
- Growing the operational capacity of the business – Operate efficiently
- Driving the evolution of our sustainability strategy – Operate responsibly
Geoff Marshall, Commercial Director says, “Telford Homes is a forward thinking, innovative organisation that continues to grow in size and reputation. As we develop new ways of working to deliver prestigious, residential developments across London, we needed to find a more streamlined process to pre-qualify our valued subcontractors and manage our supply chain.”
After building company type-specific questionnaires from a vast resource of questions, Builder’s Profile Main Contractor Services Team worked with the Telford Homes’ Procurement Department to create a bespoke Pre-qualification Evaluation, designed specifically to suit their unique strategy.
Julie McGrady, Head of Operations at Builder’s Profile says, “Telford homes are the developer equivalent of the ‘square’ hole that Builder’s Profile has created the ‘square’ peg to fit. Working together, we’ve created an efficient and straightforward workflow that both improves the review procedure and integrates with existing internal systems.”
Geoff continues, “The solution provided by Builder’s Profile ticks all those boxes and many more, aiding our subcontractor selection and ensuring that all of the documentation held by us is correct & up to date. As a free service to the industry, we have been impressed by their offering and look forward to developing our working relationship.”
