The council estimates the outsourcing deal will save £9m over the liftime of the responsive repairs framework.
Each of the firms will carry out responsive repairs to around 12,000 homes and properties in individual deals worth more than £50m.
Specialist Willmott Dixon Partnerships will transfer in 170 council staff as it works with the local council’s arms length management organisation to deliver a repairs service to council-owned property.
The new contract starts in October and covers the areas of Wentworth South, Wentworth Valley, Rother Valley West and Rother Valley South. Morrison’s area covers the north of the region.
Willmott Dixon Partnerships managing director Mick Williamson said, “Our aim will be to work closely with 2010 Rotherham and other stakeholders to develop and deliver a three star excellent service as we have achieved with other clients, including in South Yorkshire.”
This new contract award brings to over 110,000 the number of properties that Willmott Dixon Partnerships is responsible for.
This includes over 60,000 properties for Europe’s biggest landlord, Birmingham City Council, in the north and south of the city.
