Diamond Build Group has been appointed to a £250m framework which will provide reactive and empty building repairs, security, disrepair works, and contact centre services for public sector organisations.
Developed by Fusion21, and in response to member and supply chain feedback, the four-year framework is split into five Lots covering different service areas and regions.
Diamond Build Group has been selected for Lot 2 and Lot 4 for London. Worth up to £22.5m, Lot 2 covers empty property repairs and improvements for housing organisations. Lot 4 has a value of £35m and is for property repairs and improvements driven by housing disrepair legislation.
Peter Francis, Executive Director of Operations at Fusion21 said: “Our refreshed offer has been designed in response to member and supply chain feedback and now provides all aspects of repairs, maintenance, property refurbishment, and security works in one place.
“Current figures have highlighted housing associations are spending around £5.4 billion a year on repairs and maintenance services and we expect demand in this area to continue to grow.
“Our national Reactive Repairs and Empty Buildings Framework comes at a time when tackling back-log repairs and disrepair works remains a high priority for registered providers, alongside targets to increase customer satisfaction within communities and deliver best practice.
“Fusion21 members accessing this complaint framework will work alongside a rigorously assessed and approved supply chain and will also be supported by our technical procurement experts to deliver social value they can see within communities.”
Paul Hoskins from Diamond Build Group added: “We have been helping public sector organisations to upgrade and repair their properties for more than four decades. Our appointment to this framework reflects this expertise and our ability to provide high quality improvements while minimising disruption for residents.”
