Facilities management firm wins 10-year deal for 14,000 homes

Mitie has won a £110m repairs and improvements contract for 14,000 homes in East Anglia, London and the South-east.

The deal, for housing associations Orbit East & South, will be worth around £11m per year for 10 years, Mitie said.

It is due to begin in April 2011, and has an optional extension of five years after the first 10.

Adrian Dawson, Director for Mitie group’s Property Management team, said: “The appointment is a testament to our track record of delivering outstanding results on our existing contract with Orbit. We look forward to delivering on our promises to further invest in the community, provide apprenticeships and work placements. 

“Our investment package is all made possible by Orbit’s vision for a long term partnership with Mitie.  We are delighted to be working with Orbit for many years to come and are committed to continuing to deliver a first-class service to Orbit and its residents.”
