Hammersmith and Fulham Council has awarded United Living Property Services (ULPS) a repairs and maintenance contract worth at least £20 million over five years.
From 1 August, ULPS will be responsible for providing an essential day-to-day repairs service for 5,000 homes in the borough including both flats and houses, as well as refurbishing any empty homes. The service will be operated 24/7 with out-of-hours support.
About 20 staff will move across to ULPS under TUPE regulations, and the team will provide plumbing, carpentry, groundworks and electrical works. It will work alongside other contractors of different disciplines across various geographical areas.
Conor Bray, managing director of ULPS, said: “We are committed to working closely with Hammersmith and Fulham Council to help improve the lives of its residents and their communities. Our data-driven customer focus delivers real value to our customers, driving improvements throughout the portfolio and as a result we are seeing significant growth within our business.”
