Rok secures £90m after eight framework wins

Rok has won eight new contracts under framework agreements worth a combined total of £90 million over the next four years.

The latest Rok wins bring the total anticipated value of the 22 frameworks won so far this year to £440 million, compared with £290 million worth this time last year.

Rok has been chosen by Wincanton, the UK’s second largest logistics company, to provide planned maintenance, repair and building alteration services for its warehouses and offices.

Specialist care provider Craegmoor Healthcare selected Rok to provide maintenance for the care homes, colleges and hospitals they run in Central England and the South-east.

Bracknell Forest Council has hired Rok’s planned and response maintenance services for its schools and public buildings.

Rok will replace kitchens, bathrooms and heating systems in Bath for Somer Housing Group.

In Lancashire, where Rok has been working on a similar replacement scheme for Wigan and Leigh Housing, it has now been asked to carry out planned maintenance on the exteriors of its rented properties.

The other three framework wins are for local authorities and their management organisations where Rok has existing maintenance services contracts and has now been asked to build new homes to increase the stock.

These are for Your Homes Newcastle, City West Homes in Westminster and Wigan and Leigh Housing.

Rok chief executive Garvis Snook said: “These eight new framework arrangements illustrate the geographical spread we have through our extensive network of branches and the range of sectors in which we operate.

“It is also pleasing to see the diversification of our provision to existing social housing customers through a combination of good service and excellent relationships.

“The fact that we employ so many of our own people to deliver these services which are available round the clock if required, continues to prove popular with the market.”
