Published by Rebecca Jackson for Kier Services in Housing and also in Local Government
Kier has been appointed by North Kesteven District Council in Lincolnshire to provide a responsive repairs and maintenance service to all of its 3,830 council houses and non-housing assets as part of a contract worth £1.7m.
Kier was selected following an extensive procurement process, which involved residents at every stage and incorporated a price and quality evaluation, interviews and site visits.
The leading housing maintenance company, which manages repairs and maintenance for more than 240,000 homes across the country, will provide repairs and maintenance including property clearing and cleaning, disabled adaptations, a vulnerable persons decoration scheme and maintenance of door entry systems and stairlifts as part of the North Kesteven contract.
Kier regional managing director, Simon Bullen, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to work with North Kesteven District Council to provide repairs and maintenance for properties across the region. We look forward to working closely with residents and the council, and this opportunity further enhances Kier's well-established status as the country’s leading provider of public sector maintenance services.”
North Kesteven contract manager, Michael Gadd, said: “We are happy to be partnering with Kier to provide the very best service for customers across the region. We take tenant feedback very seriously and chose Kier for its reputation as a leading service provider that has consistently received positive feedback in customer surveys and satisfaction ratings.”
Kier beat off competition from six other providers to be awarded the five-year contract, which will begin on 1 April.
