Case Study: Golden Gates Housing

Project Type - Standalone Stores
Start Date - May 2006 - 5 year contract
Contract Value - £1.2m p/a

Golden Gates Housing (GG H) established a major supply contract with Jewson in 2005 through the use of an Office of Government Commerce (OGC) Buying Solutions framework agreement. Under the partnership, Jewson opened an on-site dedicated store in May 2006, exclusively for the use of GG H. The store carries a bespoke stock range designed to meet GGH's specific requirements.

One of only 10 Social Housing Organisations in the country to be presented with this prestigious award, GG H recognises the contribution made by its partnership with Jewson, which has delivered over £130,000 savings.

Over the last few years Jewson has worked with GG H to close and relocate three existing stores facilities. These have been rationalised into one new facility which is leased and managed by Jewson. The new facility incorporates a store, offices and meeting rooms.

A bespoke core stock range and comprehensive stock management system has been put in place to manage stock availability for GG H's fleet of 96 operatives and reduce reliance on local third tier suppliers. An e-business facility has also been implemented which provides monthly consolidated invoicing, along with bespoke order fields that enable the data to be loaded directly onto the GG H IT system. This reduces both paperwork and the time spent on procurement. These solutions have generated significant cash and efficiency savings for GGH, enabling its team to carry out more repairs each day.

Peter Mercer, Chief Executive of Golden Gates Housing, says: "We have worked extremely hard to achieve the three-star status and could not have done so without the support of our partners. Jewson has unrivalled expertise in assisting public sector clients to achieve their efficiency targets. It has vast experience of working with housing associations and local authorities, and, through its relationship with OGCbuying.solutions, delivers a cost-effective and highly efficient supply solution."

The OGC has assessed that the partnership with Jewson is delivering overall savings of £70,000 on material costs and £60,000 on tendering and managing the contract. Further actions taken to reduce expenditure include the relocation of two thirds of GG H's operational staff to the new shared Jewson store facility, which alone generates £50,000 annual savings.
