Property services business Liberty has been awarded two contracts with Salford-based landlord ForHousing worth approximately £2.8m.
ForHousing, which owns and manages more than 24,000 homes across the North-West, re-appointed Liberty to its servicing contract for communal gas and biomass heating systems.
The contract was secured through a mini competition on the Fusion21 Heating & Renewables 2020-24 Framework.
With a value of £450,000 the one-year contract, which recently got underway, covers a portfolio of nearly 2000 properties. The contract includes the possibility of a one-year extension.
The business has also secured a contract to replace kitchens and bathrooms and void works worth over £2.4m. The one-year contract will increase the living standards for tenants for years to come.
Ray Jones, Group Managing Director at Liberty, said: “Retaining this significant heating systems contract, and a new repairs and maintenance contract with ForHousing is testament to the high standard of services we consistently provide and the trust our clients place in us.”
Nigel Sedman, Executive Director of Homes at ForHousing, said: “We are committed to providing well-maintained, sustainable homes for our tenants and their safety is our number one priority.
“Everything we do aims to positively impact the lives of our social housing tenants.
“Working collaboratively with Liberty means we can deliver on being 100% gas compliant and ensure we deliver excellent performance in maintaining the heating of our tenants’ homes.”
