Newlon appoints Wates Living Space as new repairs contractor
3rd Aug 2015
Following an extensive and competitive procurement process we are pleased to announce the appointment of Wates Living Space as our new responsive repairs and maintenance contractor. They will be responsible for providing a range of repairs and maintenance services for our nearly 8,000 homes
The new contract formally commenced on 3rd August and runs for an initial period of five years. We have already been working closely together to prepare for the contract to go live. It is hoped to extend the partnership so that Wates can take on cyclical and major works commitments further into the contract.
Wates is also actively supporting our programme to help residents into employment through a range of apprenticeships and community initiatives.
Mark Newstead, Newlon’s Director of Property Services said: “I am really pleased to announce the appointment of Wates Living Space as our new repairs and maintenance contractor. We have a shared commitment to working in partnership and improving services. I am confident that Wates will help us deliver outstanding services for our residents.”
