Clarion Housing Group has chosen Pinnacle Group to provide cleaning services in properties at its estates in Wisbech, Huntingdon, Peterborough and Cambridge.
Clarion is the UK's largest housing association, owning and managing about 125,000 homes.
Under the three-year contract, starting on 8 March, Pinnacle will supply estates services at 195 sites, working in new-build flats, low to medium-rise flats and a mix of new and established housing estates. The deal runs for an initial three years, with a two-year extension option, and will include the 17 retirement schemes that Clarion operates in the region.
Services include regular cleaning and management of the wide-ranging, mixed tenure and sheltered sites in Clarion’s Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire portfolio.
Neil Fergus, Pinnacle Group’s managing director of facilities management, said: “As shown in our work with other housing associations, Pinnacle takes pride in building valuable partnerships with our customers’ teams and ensuring that their residents get the best possible service. We look forward to demonstrating this commitment to Clarion.”
Across the UK, London-based Pinnacle supports at least 300,000 homes, 200 schools and 80 public buildings.
Both Clarion and Pinnacle Group are focused on taking a sustainable approach to housing and participate in a range of wider ventures. These include Clarion Futures, the charitable foundation of Clarion Housing Group and Pinnacle People, the group’s social investment arm, which helps to get people back to work, develops skills and offers support with personal financial management.
