Electrical and central heating provider Saltire Facilities Management has been awarded a contract with South Lanarkshire Council following a housing framework procurement competition.
The deal, worth about £340,000, involves delivering a programme of domestic fixed electrical testing for up to 5,000 homes across the region.
Bellshill-based Saltire, which delivers home improvement works for councils and housing associations across Scotland, will complete inspection and testing of electrical systems including undertaking remedial works to ensure that each installation is fully compliant. The programme of works is subject to change owing to Covid restrictions, but Saltire expects to deliver improvements to between 3,500 and 5,000 homes across the South Lanarkshire region.
The contract is an 18-month working partnership between Saltire and South Lanarkshire Council with an option for an 18 months extension. It will be managed by electrical manager Steven Kerrigan and contract managers Brian Purden and Jamie Cooper, all supervised by installations director Alan Murray, who was recently appointed to the company's board.
Murray is one of two new directors on the board, as Natalie Milne joins as service delivery director. With a combined 30 years at Saltire, both new directors bring leadership experience to the board.
As installations director, Murray will add monitoring and compliance to his current role, where he manages all heating installations at Saltire, and Milne will lead on all contract administration for operations in Saltire’s contact centre as part of her new role.
Murray said, “Saltire Facilities Management is looking at sustainable growth to come over the next 3-5 years, and our recent contract wins are testament to how ambitious we are.”
