Breyer Group has won a clutch of social housing contracts collectively worth more than £50m, including a place on a prestigious £400m ECO framework for British Gas, Construction News can reveal.
Breyer has been named on British Gas’ Energy Company Obligation panel, which will see Breyer receiving work from the energy provider and sourcing its own projects on the South, London and Midlands lots.
The firm has also won a £31m Tower Hamlets Decent Homes contract to bring the council’s housing stock up to standard.
That work will cover almost 2,000 homes in east London, focusing on kitchens and bathrooms and providing apprenticeships and skills programmes for local subcontractors.
The third contract will see Breyer providing planned repairs work for housing group A2Dominion.
This deal will be worth up to £3m in the first year and will run for a further three years.
The British Gas framework will run for two years. Breyer is now completing final Ofgem compliance checks and is putting processes and procedures in place to deliver the scheme.
These include the ability to mobilise funding for energy-efficiency works.
Under ECO, energy companies are obliged to deliver £1.4bn in energy-saving measures over the next two years, with British Gas responsible for 33 per cent of this.
The scheme is focused on energy-efficiency measures in low-income households and areas, along with hard-to-treat properties.
Breyer Group managing director Tim Breyer said the framework would rely on both parties seeking out green opportunities and bringing them to the table.
He added that the firm was in “detailed discussions” with existing customers, and with potential new customers interesting in improving the efficiency of their stock.
Work under that agreement is due to start immediately.
Mr Breyer also said he was “extremely proud” to be continuing the firm’s relationships with A2Dominion and Tower Hamlets council.
Five new apprentices will be created through the A2Dominion contract, and eleven in the first year of the Tower Hamlets work.
Breyer carries out various repairs and maintenance work for A2Dominion, and has formed a joint venture with the providers, known as Pyramid Plus.
