Leading property services business Liberty has secured a new General Building Works and Property Refurbishment Framework to void properties for Flintshire County Council.
The multi-year contract will see the business repair and refurbish empty homes to an updated and modern standard for new tenants across the council’s c.7,300 properties until 2027.
As part of the new contract, the business is committed to supporting the local community. One apprenticeship will be available for young people in the local area as well as improved skills workshops and a carbon emissions reduction plan through the use of electric vehicles.
Bryan Tennant, Regional Director (R&M and Construction), said:
“I am thrilled to be partnering with Flintshire County Council. This significant milestone allows us to breathe new life into vacant properties, revitalizing them to meet the highest modern standards for the benefit of the Councils tenants.
“Together with Flintshire County Council, we embark on a transformative journey. Our shared vision encompasses not only the renovation of properties but also the empowerment of individuals. At Liberty, we are proud to be catalysts of positive change and progress.”
Flintshire County Council’s Chief Officer for Housing & Communities, Vicky Clark said:
“We are looking forward to working with Liberty to refurbish our empty housing stock. It is positive that the company is committed to supporting the local community in what will be an ambitious project to bring our void properties up to modern standards and to be able to offer a home for those in need.”
