Rok wins £20million deal in north east

Property repair and maintenance specialist Rok has won a four-year framework contract in the north east of England worth £20million.

NE Procurement – a consortium of 11 social housing providers – has appointed Rok to provide repairs and maintenance services to the 100,000 properties owned and operated by its members.

The work will include installing new bathrooms, heating, windows and doors.

Rok chief executive Garvis Snook said: “The NE Procurement appointment adds to our successful position on similar consortia arrangements across the North of England, such as Fusion 21, GM Procure, Northern Housing Federation and Cumbria Housing Partners, illustrating the value that our local businesses and direct delivery workforce can add.”

NE Procurement includes Coast & Country - which covers the Redcar and Cleveland area, Blyth Homes, Dale and Valley Homes, Derwentside Homes, Erimus Housing, Housing Hartlepool, South Tyneside Homes, Tees Valley Housing, Three Rivers Housing and Your Homes, Newcastle.

Another deal announced by Rok this week will see the company build a proportion of the new homes required by Moat Housing Association in the south east and London. The deal is worth around £66mill.

The two deals bring the total value of framework agreements won by Rok so far this year to £343millcompared with the £240mill won during the first four months of 2008.
