Sandwell Council has signed up Graham to its Building Fabric Repair & Maintenance and Minor Building Works contract.
The Midlands-based construction and FM contractor will deliver a range of repairs and maintenance to non-housing buildings and external areas, including minor capital works for new-build, refurbishment, and alteration projects, across Sandwell council’s large property portfolio.
The four-year deal involves facilities and amenities such as public buildings and associated structures, offices, schools, community centres and parks.
Procured through Constructing West Midlands, the deal extends a long-term relationship between Graham and Sandwell Council that goes back to 2013.
Sandwell is a metropolitan borough in the Black Country, comprising six towns – Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich. The council provides services to at least 325,000 residents.
Gareth Smyth, operations director for Graham’s FM division, said: “Graham has established a strong presence in the Midlands, and we are particularly pleased that Sandwell Council has selected us to deliver this important Building Fabric Repair & Maintenance and Minor Building Works contract.
“This latest award is testament to the professionalism and consistent record of quality delivery by our West Midlands team. We will continue to collaborate with the council team and its stakeholders, develop and invest in our local supply chain, and work closely with the Sandwell community to maximise our social value impact, particularly through the creation of jobs and the provision of skills and training opportunities.”
Tammy Stokes, interim director of regeneration and growth at the council, said: “Following a competitive procurement process that assessed both cost and quality outcomes we felt that Graham was the perfect fit for this important contract and we look forward to working with to help us to achieve our ‘big plans, for a great place’.”
