BIRMINGHAM: Lovell has been awarded a 10-year-deal worth £50m by the Accord Group to repair housing in the Midlands.

Accord provides 11,000 houses and Lovell will undertake day-to-day repairs and provide a 24-hour reactive repairs service to properties in Birmingham, Coventry, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Sandwell.

The contract will start next month. Paul Smith, chief executive, Lovell parent company Morgan Sindall said: “We are thrilled that Accord Group has chosen Lovell to carry out this repairs contract, not least because the deal will create a number of maintenance apprenticeships over the next 10 years.

“This is a significant contract win, and further underlines the ability of Lovell to deliver first class maintenance and repair services across a broad geographical area.”
