External Refurbishment of PRC Properties, Bromford

SBS is one of four contractors recently appointed to a new multi-measure scheme in the Midlands. The work was procured through the Merlin Framework on behalf of Bromford Housing Association.  

SBS was appointed to the Merlin framework a number of years ago, but it won its place on this latest contract as a result of a mini tender. Its bid was assessed on the basis of price and quality. The quality elements of the submission were judged by criteria including experience, knowledge and understanding; resources and management structure; and added social value and innovation.
