The five-year major works programme deal covers Decent Homes-type improvements to kitchens and bathrooms, boiler and system replacements as well as upgrades for disabled access.
The Homes and Communities Agency has provisionally allocated £96m to Lewisham Homes with £25.5m confirmed for the first two years.
The Lewisham win adds to Mitie’s social housing business, which now delivers building maintenance to more than 80 local authorities and housing associations.
Mitie also agreed to take on five apprentices from Lewisham and invest in targeted back-to-work programmes in the area.
Lewisham residents were involved at each stage of the procurement process, from visiting housing providers to interviewing and selecting contractors.
They played a key role in developing the Major Works Standard which sets out the quality and finish of works expected by residents.
Bill Robson, managing director of Mitie’s Property Management business, said: “We are delighted to be working with Lewisham Homes to carry out extensive improvements and maintenance.
“Mitie’s work in Lewisham extends beyond Lewisham Council homes, as we embark on this sizeable piece of work we welcome members of the Lewisham community to join our cadre of over 300 apprentices.”
