ForWorks Secures Three New Housing Provider Contracts

North West construction firm ForWorks has secured three new housing contracts with housing providers.

North Symphony Housing Group owns and manages 41,000 homes in the region and has given ForWorks the task of delivering its responsive, out of hours repair service to customers throughout Greater Manchester.

West construction firm ForWorks has secured three new housing contracts with housing providers.

ForWorks, based in Salford, has also been chosen by Rochdale Boroughwide Housing to carry out disrepair works to many of its properties.

As part of the deal, ForWorks will install new kitchens and bathrooms and deliver repairs, as well as carrying out larger structural works, to 14,000 properties owned by Rochdale Boroughwide.

The firm has also been chosen by Ribble Valley Homes to carry out bathroom and kitchen work on its properties.

Stever Parrington, Managing Director at ForWorks, commented: “Securing three contracts with regional landlords demonstrates ForWorks’ ability to deliver first class services into the heart of communities.

“We are delighted to have been selected for these projects as we continue our growth in 2016 and beyond.”

The hat-trick of wins comes after ForWorks’ appointment to a £15.6 million contract to deliver grounds maintenance works for the City West Housing Trust.

The North West based business will manage more than 500 sites across the city for client City West Housing Trust, with work including the maintenance of green spaces and hedges, playground inspections, tree and shrubbery inspections and other operational work.

The team will also undertake the development of new and existing sites to enhance the local environment.

The 13 year contract will allow ForWorks to create three new apprenticeships within its grounds maintenance team with a view to increasing this in the coming years, as well as take on 18 staff currently employed by the local authority.

Earlier in the year, the firm was also awarded a six figure maintenance contract by health and social care charity Alternative Futures Group.
