Painting and maintenance specialist Seddon Property Services has been chosen by Orbit Housing Association’s East and South regions for a ten-year painting and repairs contract worth approximately £20 million in total turnover.
Seddon Property Services is part of the family-owned Seddon Group, specialising in construction and maintenance.
The work will take place in the East and South regions, starting this month, with redecoration work and pre-painting repairs to be undertaken on around 16,500 homes managed by Orbit in Kent, East Sussex, Surrey, South London, Norfolk and Suffolk.
There will be an optional five-year extension when the ten-year term ends, and Seddon will create 20 new jobs.
Orbit head of planned works Deji Fajobi said the contract was “the culmination of a competitive and OJEU-compliant process that generated significant interest”.
He added: “Seddon’s winning tender offers the opportunity to deliver high quality works at great value for our residents and the wider community.”
Seddon strategic operations manager Lee Painter said: “We look forward to working with Orbit and residents to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective service using our extensive experience of providing painting and maintenance services for affordable housing sector clients.”
