A consortium made up of the Carroll Group and Sovini Property Services has successfully secured an asset management contract worth over £317m.
Carroll Group, which incorporates Carroll Build, Carroll Waste and Amianto Services, will deliver various elements of the contract including new-build, refurbishment and waste management.
Terry Carroll, Managing Director of Carroll Group, said: “This is our largest contract award to date and will enable us to invest in our staff, including providing further opportunities for apprentices. We are delighted to have the opportunity to lead on One Vision Housing’s extensive development programme over the coming years, creating much needed high quality affordable homes across the region. Our quality waste management and asbestos management offer will also deliver increased value for money.”
Sovini Property Services will continue to provide repairs and maintenance services to the housing providers, which they have undertaken since their inception in 2010.
Arturo Gulla, Group Director of Asset Management at One Vision Housing and Pine Court Housing Association, said: “Sovini Property Services has been delivering an excellent service for us for a number of years. They are always looking to improve services for our customers and consistently achieve high satisfaction as a result. The involvement of Carroll Group will further enhance the services we provide to customers, offering more value for money. The consortium’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, offering local employment opportunities and apprenticeships, will result in long-term benefits to the communities we serve.”
Carroll Group and Sovini Property Services won the contract through OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union), a European procurement database designed to ensure fairness and transparency in tender processes.
The consortium’s track record in delivering excellent services, consistently achieving high levels of customer satisfaction and a commitment to social value, were among the key factors in securing the contract.
