The four-year deal will see Apollo’s housing team carry out improvements to the Essex town’s social housing estate, including kitchen and bathroom refurbishments, central heating upgrades and electrical re-wires.
Apollo chief executive officer Dave Sheridan said: “Winning a contract of this size is a great way to end the year for Apollo.
“The appointment is a testament to our track record on delivering outstanding results for public sector clients. We look forward to working with Colchester Borough Council in the New Year.”
