Progress Housing Group Commissions £400K Mechanical and Electrical Contract
Fusion21 member, Progress Housing Group has accessed our Compliance and Facilities Management Framework to carry out a ‘further competition’ for the service and maintenance of fire alarms; emergency lighting and CCTV.
Following the further competition, Amalgamated Ltd – a leading independent Fire and Security company – has been awarded a Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) contract worth £400,000 to undertake all maintenance and service works nationwide across the group’s geographical locations.
The housing association - provides a variety of supported living schemes for people with learning disabilities nationwide, in addition to accommodation for keyworkers; has dispersed housing stock in locations including Lancashire, Lincolnshire and Surrey and was keen to consolidate its current M&E supply chain to one single supply partner.
As a result, Amalgamated Ltd began its contract in July 2017 which is set for completion in June 2022.
Rebecca Baldwin, Procurement Officer at Progress Housing Group said: “As a result of this successful procurement process, we can now service all of our M&E contract requirements - from fire alarms; emergency lighting to CCTV and door entry systems all in one place.”
Phil Woodhead, Framework Manager at Fusion21 added: “The ability to appoint a supplier who can service work nationwide has resulted in Progress Housing Group having a single point of contact and a consistent reporting approach for the housing group.”
