HOME Group has appointed Mitie Property Services to contracts with a potential value of £168m.

The affordable housing provider has appointed Mitie to provide repairs and maintenance services in two regions.

The North West contract covers areas surrounding Maryport, Workington, Whitehaven and Egremont in Cumbria with an estimated value of £126m.

The other contract covers Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Northampton and valued at around £42m.

Rosemary Du Rose, Home Group’s executive director of operations, said: “We’re committed to ensuring our customers have homes which are maintained to the highest standards.

“This announcement details the vast sums we will be investing in our homes in the coming years and were confident that Mitie fully understands our social mission to deliver high quality housing, repairs and maintenance to our customers.”

The contracts follow a competitive tendering process in which all companies were assessed against criteria which included Customer Service, Value for Money and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Mat Bishop, Managing Director for Mitie’s Property Management business, said: “I’m delighted to have been awarded the full term contract with Home Group, after initially starting work on an interim basis. This is testament to us performing well and delivering a great service to our client.”
