The repairs framework is expected to be worth around £14m a year with the winning firm working alongside the in-house DLO, which will carry out a separate £11m programme of housing work.
Camden said the housing maintenance contract will run for five years with an option to extend the arrangement to 10 years if the project is running smoothly.
As part of the joint working, the contractor will be expected to work with the DLO to improve processes and systems under its “right first time” project and possible jointly procure materials.
Work packages include internal upgrades and minor communal repairs to 3,000 homes in the Holborn District and major communal repairs including those requiring leasehold consultation to the council’s 33,000 housing stock.
Camden’s new maintenance contract will start in January 2013. Firms turning over more than £22m can prequalify and have until 5 March to express an interest on the e-tendering system: https://uk.eu-supply.com/lbcamden.asp.
