Osborne replaces Willmott Dixon on £48m repairs contract

Willmott Dixon and Affinity Sutton have agreed to cut short a £48m responsive repairs contract, with Osborne replacing the firm on up to 20,000 units across Affinity’s London stock.

The five-year deal was originally billed with a potential extension up to 20 years – giving the contract a total value of £190m.

Construction News understands that Osborne will take over the contract “on an interim basis”, from 26 June.

Willmott Dixon Partnerships – the company’s specialist repairs and maintenance division – won the deal in February 2012.

A Willmott Dixon statement said: “Affinity Sutton and Willmott Dixon have agreed to shorten the term of their current responsive repairs and voids contract with effect from 25 June 2013.

“Affinity Sutton is grateful to Willmott Dixon for successfully establishing the ASLA wholly-owned subsidiary and in delivering the new integrated programme of work during its first year.

“Affinity Sutton, in conjunction with ASLA, are working together to hand over to a successor service provider.”

Willmott Dixon’s £45m repairs contract with Notting Hill Housing Trust was ended by mutual agreement in August of last year.
