  • Client background

  • Advantage South West is a consortium of 17 housing associations and councils from across the South West with a combined housing stock of nearly 70,000 properties spread from Bristol to Dorset and North Devon to Penzance.

  • The selection process

  • Premiere were selected ahead of up to eight other companies to be the Advantage South West kitchen supplier following a rigorous and thorough selection process. After the pre-qualifying process Advantage South West worked to five main principles when awarding the contract and these were:- 

    1.Tenant involvement - tenants viewed kitchen samples (anonymised) and rated them according to how they looked, felt and how easy they were to use.

    2. Member involvement - this included a technical panel to ensure the product met the various members' specifications and requirements.

    3. Value for money - this took into account the quality of the product and the quality of the service, not just the cheapest price.

    4. E-auction for pricing - live bidding.

    5. Legislative compliance - ensuring the successful candidate had all the necessary accreditation and certification.

  • Our work with Advantage South West

  • The contract requires Premiere to supply kitchens of different specification quickly and accurately to numerous locations across the South West.

    In the first 18 months, Premiere supplied more than 3,500 kitchens to over 40 different clients and contractors for planned programmes (including ‘decent homes’ projects), void and response contracts direct to site, as well as to local stocking merchants and numerous development schemes including properties to rent, ‘shared ownership’ and ‘build to sale’ schemes.

  • Client view

  • Tor Homes has consistently received a very high standard of service from all at Premiere Kitchens – from the initial survey, order and customer service through to the dispatch and delivery. The quality of the products provided are second to none”.
