Mitie's property management business has been awarded a new contract - and the largest since 2012 - with Home Group, a provider of affordable housing.
The new seven-year partnership is worth in the region of £84 million and has an optional seven-year extension that would bring the total value of the contract to £168 million.
Mitie has been providing repairs and maintenance to Home Group residents since embarking on an interim contract with the housing provider over a year ago.
The subsequent contract award - which will see Mitie deliver responsive repairs, void works, servicing and heating repairs and planned works across central and northern regions of the UK - encapsulates the business's mission to form long-term, collaborative relationships and deliver sustainable value to clients, customers and communities.
Rosemary Du Rose, Home Group executive director of operations, said Mitie "understand our social mission to delivering high-quality housing, repairs and maintenance to our customers living in the North-West and central regions".
