OSD's New External Repair Contract

Much of our work for Chesterfield Borough Council is delivered through procurement frameworks, but the council also has a separate operations service division (OSD) which sometimes commissions work directly. We were therefore pleased to be invited to submit a proposal for a new project, which will entail external improvements to a variety of occupied properties.

Our proposal was accepted and is now scheduled to run from August to late November 2019. The work will include installing new energy efficient windows to 45 properties, and re-rendering 36 properties. Some of the houses may need both measures.

"We are ranked number one for both price and quality on EEM's current solid wall insulation framework," said Group Commercial Director, Gary Lawson. "As a result, we've won a number of projects through the framework itself, including for Chesterfield Council, but it's good to see that our top ranking is also helping us to win directly commissioned work.

"We have a strong track record in the area, and I look forward to building on it through this latest scheme."
