Liverpool property services business Liberty has secured three new contracts that will be worth up to £32m over the next 10 years.
Among the trio of new deals, its the company’s biggest contract win to date by number of properties. Liberty will deliver servicing and repairs and maintenance of heating systems for 22,000 homes on behalf of Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council.
Worth up to £7.2m over six years, this work will include call out maintenance, servicing and repairs for all wet central heating, warm air and hot water systems as well as electric fire suites and other gas and solid fuel appliances including homes with air source heat pumps. It will also create up to 14 apprenticeships.
Liberty specialises in domestic repairs and maintenance and heating and compliance services. During the final quarter of 2021 it secured nine new contracts in what was a strong period of growth for the business. In January it reported new deals worth more than £5m.
Its new contracts also include a deal worth up to £22m with mhs homes to carry out heating system servicing and repairs and installation works on tenant’s homes and commercial properties in Kent. The contract is for five years with options to extend the term up to a maximum an additional five years.
Its third contract win is with East Devon District Homes. The contract worth £3m over 10 years will see the firm delivering similar works covering homes and commercial properties. This has been secured as part of the new Advantage South West multi-supplier framework.
Ray Jones, group managing director of Liberty, said: “It’s been a great start to the year for Liberty, with these new contract wins building on three new repair and maintenance contracts that we have already announced so far this year.
“I’m delighted that we have been able to achieve such strong growth in the face of a challenging economic climate. These latest contract wins build on the strong foundations we have as a business. Our people-focused, intelligence-driven property services put tenants at the heart of our approach, delivering better outcomes for clients.
