£3 million NIHE contract

SitexOrbis has retained a £3 million contract to secure empty properties for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the province’s largest landlord. The four year contract joins eight others won in the public sector this year worth up to an additional £1 million for the property and people protection specialist.

New business signed includes out-of-hours call handling for Cheltenham Borough Council, Accent Housing and Solihull Community Housing Trust. In addition, Ty Bron Afon housing association in Wales awarded a new contract for cleaning and clearing and Dublin City Council awarded a contract for removals and storage.

Public sector clients renewing empty property security contracts include River Clyde Homes, Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council and Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council. The last two contracts were procured through LHC framework agreement, V5. LHC awarded the company a 99.9% Value for Money rating last year.

European director, Mark Cosh, said: “We’ve worked with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive since 1993. Retaining the contract speaks volumes about our staff in Belfast. We are encouraged by the rate we are winning new business and retaining clients in a tough trading period.”
