Morgan Sindall Property Services (MSPS) work in partnership with Waltham Forest Council to deliver its borough-wide housing repairs and maintenance programme for the Council’s 10,000 homes, plus its 2,000 leaseholders.
The eight-year contract started in April 2019 and has the potential to be extended for a further seven years. It will see MSPS provide a complete range of repairs and maintenance services including day-to-day repairs; emergency repairs; refurbishment of void properties and out-of-hours services. MSPS will also carry out planned improvement works and special projects including the Council’s kitchen and bathroom replacement and window renewal programmes as well as decorating work and improvements to communal areas on estates.
Key to this contract is the development of social value initiatives helping to support the local community. We have created “WalthamFUTURES”, which is designed to provide training, structured work experience, pre-apprenticeships and employment opportunities to local residents of all ages and backgrounds. Residents will also be supported with CV workshops and interview training sessions, DIY skills training and digital inclusion workshops.
