In its biggest contract win to date by number of properties, Liberty will deliver servicing and repairs and maintenance of heating systems for 22,000 homes on behalf of Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council.
Worth up to £7.2m over six years, this work will include call out maintenance, servicing and repairs for all wet central heating, warm air and hot water systems as well as electric fire suites and other gas and solid fuel appliances including homes with air source heat pumps.
As part of the contract, Liberty has committed to creating up to 14 apprenticeships to benefit local people.
Liberty has also secured a contract worth up to £22m with mhs homes to carry out heating system servicing and repairs and installation works on tenant’s homes and commercial properties in Kent. The contract is for five years with options to extend the term up to a maximum an additional five years.
