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.
