Circle announces preferred bidders

25 May 2012

Housing group Circle has announced the preferred bidders for responsive and planned repairs work worth up to £1.2 billion.

Circle plans to enter into an initial term of five years with any final selected bidders, subject to contract, with an option to extend for a further five years.

Circle is now running a full customer consultation with leaseholders and service charge payers on the preferred bidders, a Circle statement said.

Contracts will be awarded once this process has been completed and any feedback from customers or shortlisted bidders has been taken into account. Implementation across the group is expected to take place over a period of six to nine months.

Mark Rogers, Group Chief Executive at Circle, said: "As one of the UK’s largest housing groups, we are using our size not only to create a better service for our 200,000 residents, but also to deliver better value for money, saving up to £100 million in ten years.”

Circle has consulted with more than 400 customers who “have helped to shape the new service and select our contractors”, he said.
