Delivering Social Value for the Hyde Group

Delivering social value for our customers and our stakeholders is of great importance to us and we were really pleased to provide a significant contribution in the provision of a new cupboard at The Arc Community Centre, Islington in partnership with the Hyde Group. Claritas sourced and funded the project with DGP Logistics despatching the manpower to complete the work. The cupboard was required as a valuable asset to the community food bank which operates from the centre.

Damien from The Arc said “The work that you guys have done is absolutely vital to the smooth running of the centre.  The cupboards also mean that everything can be safely stashed away and out of sight enabling us to use the room for more community activities and hire the space to generate essential income as well as reducing wastage through lack of suitable storage”.

Claritas continue to work with the Hyde Group and the Hyde Foundation through our involvement with the Hyde Main Contractors framework and, as we deliver 126 new homes for them in Stafford Road Croydon. So far we have created two job vacancies, and we have set targets for local spend as well as training and learning opportunities for a variety of groups within the community. The whole team at Claritas is keen to contribute and colleagues from across the company have pledged volunteering hours to work across a range of community projects.


Claritas awarded place on prestigious SCF Residential framework

Claritas is delighted to announce our appointment on the new £15.6bn Residential Delivery & Development Framework with SCF Frameworks. We have secured a place on Lot 2 Larger Value Projects of 65+ units within the sub regions of London and the South East.

Created to support public sector residential construction and development, SCF Residential is a four-year framework available to all public bodies in the South East, London and the South West.

It gives them access to market leading tier one and SME housebuilders and has been designed to be flexible and responsive to industry pressures, including carbon reduction, driving MMC and tackling the ongoing housing crisis.

Claritas CEO, Jon Wardle “This is a fantastic result for Claritas. Having secured a place within the framework amongst some strong competition we are now looking forward to working with SCF and our fellow framework providers in delivering on our promises and driving the #SCFvalues of collaboration and open book two stage tendering culminating in trustworthy, equitable and ethical contract delivery”.

Staying Connected During Lockdown

We hope all of our customers and stakeholders are staying safe and well during the Covid 19 crisis. Whilst we cant be ‘together’ at Claritas it has been lovely spending some quality ‘social’ ‘times with our Claritas family as we host various social’s via Microsoft Teams, thanks to our colleague Emma who organises them and always thinks of an interesting topic to get us all having some fun and laughter during these ‘different’ times.


Claritas expands its Commercial Portfolio

Claritas has been appointed by HGG London Limited as principal contractor to deliver the redevelopment of 134 Old Street in the heart of Shoreditch, East London. The scheme involves the demolition of the existing two storey building and construction of a new seven storey building to provide office use on floors 1-6 with a retail unit at Ground Floor. The site, which is a tight infill site in a busy central London location, will comprise a CLT frame with attractive curtain walling to the front elevation. We are pleased to be working with Mary Duggan Architects (Mary Duggan) and Measur (Brian Woodhouse) to achieve the successful delivery of the project adopting our ‘two-way transparency’ culture. Works start on site in August 2020. The award of this project adds to Claritas’ recent significant wins in the London Commercial Sector


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – Claritas closes all sites

From 5pm, Tuesday 24th March Claritas Group took the difficult decision to temporarily close all of our sites. Managing the known risks of our projects is tangible and what we do as an industry. However, when you can no longer ensure the safety of those travelling to and from your projects or their loved ones at home you need to change your focus. Our people, their families and all of our stakeholders will always come first.

Our Business Continuity Plans have been preparing us for this moment and we are now working with our many stakeholders to transition sites from operational to secure and ensure the successful continuity of design, procurement and all other processes that can be completed remotely. I thank all of our customers, consultants and supply chain partners for their support in this decision and we will celebrate the successful delivery of all of our projects as ‘one’ team in the future.

Thanks to all of the Claritas Team who have shown unwavering dedication, bravery and at the right times humour in the face of such adversity.

We will get through this together by being apart…for a short while.
