Housing provider A2Dominion has gone out to tender for repairs and maintenance contractors with final appointment likely in the autumn.
A statement by A2Dominion said that it has begun an OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union) tender process to find the contractors, two of which will become joint venture partners to deliver responsive repairs and void property repair services.
One of the JV partners will cover the London region while the other will cover the south and north regions. Each contract will be for 10 years, the statement said.
A2 is setting up two framework agreements to deliver planned programmes such as kitchen and bathroom replacements. One will cover the London region and the other will cover the A2Dominion south and north regions.
Each framework agreement will be for four years and have three to five contractors appointed to do the work.
A2 will also set up five frameworks for painting and cyclical repairs programmes, based around A2Dominion’s main local offices in Oxford, Staines, Ealing, Winchester and Bromley. Each framework will be for four years and have three to five contractors.
David Lingeman, director of property services, said A2 is working with its residents throughout the tender process to help appoint contractors.
“We anticipate that the new contractors will be announced in the autumn,” he said.
Last September A2Dominion announced it had chosen eight suppliers for a four-year framework contract for new-build and refurbishment work valued at over £10 million.
The eight contractors are:
Galliford Try Partnerships
Wates Living Space
Willmott Dixon Housing.
The A2Dominion Group provides more than 34,000 homes across London and southern England with thousands in development. Housing options include affordable rented, temporary, student, sheltered, supported and key worker accommodation.
