Mears Group has been reappointed by Islington Council to a new housing contract to manage planned maintenance of council homes in the borough.
Under the four-year contract, valued at around £12 million a year and including an option to extend for another six years, Mears will continue to deliver cyclical repairs, preventative maintenance plus energy efficiency and fire protection works.
The contract began on 1st April in the east of the borough. Over the past decade, Mears has delivered repairs and maintenance to about 15,000 homes in the council’s area.
Theo Petrou, Islington’s general manager for Mears Group, said: “This is further validation of our hard work and service that we have provided our client for the last 10 years. We place social value at the heart of our business, and we look forward to working with our client and customers to develop shared objectives as to how we can contribute back into the community, especially on our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
He added: “Mears is not just a contractor, but a local employer and our operatives are members of the community in which we will be working.”
