Osborne named for £33m Winchester housing contract

Osborne has been appointed to a 15-year framework to provide repairs and maintenance work and bring empty Winchester City Council properties back into use.

The building contractor, civil engineering and property services firm is responsible for the maintenance of around 5,400 council-owned homes under the £33m deal, as well as for a small number of council buildings including the Grade II listed Guildhall.

Works will vary in scale from fixing a dripping tap to major structural repairs under a 24 hour, 365 days a year call out service.

The firm has been challenged to prepare empty properties for use quickly so that the council can house new residents, and reduce re-letting times and tenant waiting lists.

Osborne property services managing director Nick Sterling said: “At Osborne our aim is to deliver ‘right first time’ repairs, quality workmanship, customer-focussed service and value for money.

“We hope that the residents in Winchester will benefit from our UK wide experience of making sure that we deliver the best possible service to the people we look after.”
