Central Housing Investment Consortium or CHIC for short is a consortium of social housing providers. CHIC was set up to procure efficiency savings for our members asset management programmes, including all repairs, maintenance and new build programmes. CHIC has a comprehensive suite of EU Compliant materials, supply, works and services supply and frameworks. CHIC is supported by the HCA and is a free-to-join membership.
CHIC BuildSmart offers EU-compliant contracts and frameworks for volumetric, frame/panel and traditionally constructed homes. Standard designs and documentation work with CIC’s existing, proven materials supply chain to drive down the cost of new homes, whilst improving the speed of delivery and quality standards at handover.
We hope the Forum will enable us to keep abreast of new technologies and providers of innovation to provide our members with the latest market efficiencies.
