Sovini Property Services wins contract worth over £300m
A consortium led by Sovini Property Services has successfully secured a housing management contract worth £317.6m.
The consortium, which includes Carroll Group, will deliver integrated asset management for two Merseyside-based housing associations, One Vision Housing and Pine Court Housing Association over a 10 year period.
Sovini Property Services will continue to provide repairs and maintenance services to the housing providers, which they have undertaken since their inception in 2010.
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.
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.
Steven Parker, Director of Sovini Property Services, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue our excellent relationship with One Vision Housing and Pine Court Housing Association. Working with our suppliers Sovini Trade Supplies, we have developed collaborative IT systems to help improve efficiency and transparency for our clients and we have been able to protect our clients from fluctuations in material costs. We have increased our efficiency and reduced our carbon footprint thanks to innovative van stocking systems. The excellent standard of service we deliver is consistently borne out by top performance customer satisfaction figures. We look forward to continuing to deliver an excellent service to both housing associations and their customers.”
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 consortium’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, offering local employment opportunities and apprenticeships, will result in long-term benefits to the communities we serve.”
Terry Carroll, Managing Director of Carroll Group, said: “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.”
