The group has appointed Breyer B-Line and Mitie as limited liability partnership partners under a 10-year agreement starting from 1 April.
The joint venture companies have been named Pyramid Plus and will deliver repairs to A2Dominion’s 34,000 properties across London and the South East.
Andrew Evans, A2Dominion’s Executive Director (Operations), said: “The JV model is, we believe, a more efficient and cost effective delivery vehicle that will provide a first class service to our customers whilst, at the same time, offer opportunities to generate additional revenue streams.”
Tim Breyer, managing director of Breyer Group, said: “This is an innovative delivery structure which provides us with the opportunity to further enhance our collaborative approach and develop a model that is at the forefront of partnership working.”
Peter Griffin, director of social housing at Mitie, said: “We are extremely excited about the JV with leading housing provider A2Dominon. The venture will guarantee a high value of investment in its people, ensuring excellent customer service for the ten year life of the contract and beyond.”
The award of the contracts follows the successful completion of a comprehensive OJEU tender process, and the subsequent customer consultation and standstill period.
For each of the JVs, A2Dominion will be the majority shareholder, with a 70/30 split agreed with the contractors.
A2Dominion will pay a fixed price for the responsive repairs and void services, with any surpluses being shared by both parties and reinvested into additional work, or employment and sustainability initiatives.
Each JV will have a board responsible for maximising efficiency and delivering the services that residents need.
Over time, A2Dominion will look to extend the scope of the JVs to work for other clients, such as housing associations.
