Staffordshire County Council has appointed Stoke-on-Trent based maintenance specialist Seddon Property Services to its three-year planned and reactive maintenance framework for schools and other public buildings.
The appointment is set to be worth in the region of £12 million to Seddon over the life of the framework, which also has the option to be extended. Seddon Property Services is one of a number of partners appointed to the framework which will deliver maintenance services for Council-owned buildings throughout the county, including schools, care homes and libraries.
The new framework appointment follows a seven-year partnership between Seddon and the Council for the delivery of maintenance. “Our local team has a solid track record and an excellent working relationship with the Council which we are delighted to be continuing through this new framework appointment,” says Mick Triner, head of maintenance for Seddon Property Services. “We are focused on continuing to work with the Council to provide efficient, value-for-money responsive and planned maintenance services.”
County Councillor Mark Winnington, Cabinet Member for Assets and Environment, says: “After going through the European tendering process, we successfully appointed Seddon along with five other building contractors to carry out refurbishments, small extensions and minor maintenance of schools and other county council buildings. All the contractors we have appointed represent the best value for money for the county council and Staffordshire taxpayers, and Seddon’s extensive use of the local workforce further reinforces our support of local businesses.”
Seddon Property Services is part of Seddon Group, a family-owned company specialising in construction, painting and maintenance and housebuilding.
