MONTREAL — SNC-Lavalin announced on Dec. 17 that EDAROTH — a wholly owned subsidiary of SNC-Lavalin — has been named as part of the announcement of a new £47bn developer led framework in the United Kingdom.

EDAROTH (Everybody Deserves A Roof Over Their Head) offers development management, design and engineering expertise, and off-site manufacturing techniques.

“EDAROTH is an example of how innovation and technology can enable us to provide better infrastructure solutions to our clients and communities. We developed this innovative solution having identified a trend in social and economic issues related to the future lack of affordable housing,” said Ian L. Edwards, President and CEO, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. “At the core of EDAROTH are digitally enabled, modern methods of assembly, that can be adapted to help people across the world.”

Under this framework, with public sector framework provider PABAGO, EDAROTH will have the opportunity to bid for developments of residential schemes across the UK.

“A shortage of affordable housing continues to affect communities, cities and individuals all over the world, and it’s a problem which will only be solved through innovation and new ways of working,” said Philip Hoare, President, Atkins, Engineering, Design & Project Management, SNC-Lavalin.

Once developments are completed, the public sector retains land ownership giving them essential facilities and a long-term revenue stream to bolster their finances. EDAROTH unveiled its first completed social housing development in February 2020.
