Goal:  Partnership working

Establish partnership working to reduce and share operational costs by utilising economies of scale and sharing costs by March 2018

Strategic context

This new goal recognises the benefits of partnership working to improve VFM though sharing of costs and achieving larger economies of scale.

What we are doing

(1)       Off site manufacturing factory 2016-19

Modern sustainable construction methods focus on the fabric of the building and utilise off site manufacturing of kit house units which permit higher tolerances than traditional methods.  This project considers the viability of partnership working to introduce an offsite factory to produce these units through all stages of investigation and implementation, through to the factory being up and running.

2: Partnership working for supported housing services in Worcestershire

Working with partners, review and evaluate the costs, benefits and feasibility of developing a joint venture arrangement or collaborative mechanism to provide supported housing services in Worcestershire
