Establishing Innovative Partnership Working

Our concerns over the wasted cost and effort involved in ever changing JV partnerships for large scale regeneration projects led HFBT to establish Ecentral.

We brokered a new way of working for our clients, bringing them together into a single and stable bidding entity for major regeneration opportunities instead of the usual ad-hoc bidding partnerships.
Ecentral comprised a partnership of like minded organisations and included Housing Associations, House Builders, Developers and a sub-framework of the best-in-class consultants.  HFBT Director Kevin Burrell led the united partnership under a unique “Charter of Values” which committed all partners to a set of leading edge aspirations.

Ecentral partners have included Laing O’Rourke, Development Securities, Chelsfield, First Base, George Wimpey, Crest, Genesis, East Thames, and Family Mosaic.  Our partnering Architects have included FCB Studios, Llewelyn Davies, Ken Yeang, Proctor Matthews, Studio Egret West and Haworth Tompkins.
