Circle names four on £1.2bn repair and maintenance framework

Affordable housing provider Circle has announced four preferred bidders for a repair and maintenance framework worth £1.2 billion.

The ten-year contract will see Morrison Facilities carry out responsive repairs in the central and West Midlands, while Kier Services will carry out planned repairs in the same regions.

Apollo Property Services and United House will carry out responsive repairs and planned repairs respectively in its southern region.

Circle chief executive Mark Rogers said: “As one of the UK’s largest housing groups, we are using our size not only to create a better service for our 200,000 residents, but also to deliver better value for money, saving up to £100 million in ten years.

“We have been really impressed by the high standards of the final bids presented to us. All of our shortlisted contractors put in a phenomenal effort, really taking the time to understand our organisation and what our customers want from us.  

“They also share our passion for putting more back into the communities we work in. We would like to thank all involved for their support in this, and congratulate the preferred bidders who received the highest scores against a very strong field.”

Circle plans to enter into an initial term of five years with any final selected bidders, subject to contract, with an option to extend for a further five years.

Contracts will be awarded once a customer consultation process is concluded.
