Firms wanted for £400m housing repairs deal

Published:  16 February, 2012

LONDON: Social housing landlord A2Dominion has started the search for two firms to handle repairs to its housing stock in and around London.

The landlord is organising responsive repairs and maintenance jobs into two separate contracts covering London and the south and an area covering Oxfordshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Wiltshire.

Spending on repairs is expected to top £15m a year with materials accounting for an extra £5m on each region.

The framework is being set up for around 10-years with the option to extend through a longer-term relationship of cyclical repairs.

Under the procurement plan, the two winning contractors will be expected to form a management joint venture with A2Dominion or its relevant housing association in the region.

Around three bidders will be invited to enter into a competitive dialogue with the social housing group to submit best and final offers.

Interested firms have until 19 March to submit prequalification information. Contact Paul Smith at Faithorn Farrell Timms
