Housing association L&Q has awarded a six-year, £7.5 million contract to MITIE to deliver painting services to its properties.
And the deal comes with an option for a six-year extension, worth an additional £7.5m.
The contract, which started in August, will see MITIE’s painting business deliver internal and external painting and minor fabrication repairs to general and supported housing and internal decorations to communal areas for over 5,000 of L&Q's homes each year.
MITIE was awarded the contract on the basis that it could provide value for money whilst delivering a high quality, consistent service for residents.
Matthew Drake, L&Q's head of programme management, said: “We have worked in partnership with our residents to make sure we appoint the most suitable supplier to carry out our cyclical painting programme.
“Our number one goal is resident satisfaction and we are confident that MITIE will deliver high quality products for our residents over the next six years and provide value for money.”
Kenny Robson, director of MITIE’s painting business, said: “We are delighted to be working with L&Q, who are one of the largest affordable housing providers in the UK.
“We look forward to working in partnership to support their goal to provide great value and high quality services to all residents.”
