A social landlord is searching for contractors to help ensure its 66,000 homes are safe and secure.
Circle Housing is inviting firms to bid for three regional contracts, which combined could total £150 million over 10 years.
The contracts, which will cover central, southern and eastern regions, include:
• Lift repairs and maintenance.
• Fire equipment repairs and maintenance.
• Water hygiene.
By replacing 40 contracts with just three, Circle hopes to provide a better service for its tenants.
Sasha Harrison, Circle's executive director of customer services, said: “We operate with a business head on a social heart. This new arrangement makes perfect sense as it will simplify and enhance the way we provide services to our customers. We look forward to hearing from organisations who share our commitment to providing great homes.”
