Vacman is pleased to annnounce the award of two contracts with separate central Scotland Councils. In Fife, a cleaning and general maintenance contract has been secured with the Council's Procurement and Logistics Department . The new combined contract, which previously was held by two separate companies, is for the provision of services that are primarily within properites for the homeless. The contract, which commenced in August 2012, includes an element of minor repairs, maintenance and decoration, as well as the clearance and cleaning of a range of houses and flats. The company will also provide daily cleaning services at 6 homeless hostels in the area.
" These contracts were awarded against stiff competition from a range of national and regional players, said Neil Montgomery, managing director of Vacman. We continue to develop the range of services we provide for social housing landlords, so that our clients can have a one- stop approach to clearing,cleaning and preparing void properties for re-let. The range of services we provide enable our clients to order clearance, cleaning and a range of decoration and maintenance tasks all at the same time. This ensures that property downtime is minimised and rental income is maximised. Because orders for multiple tasks are issued at the same time and, Vacman has the ability to work to very demanding timescales, the poperty is normall ready for re-let just one day after the order was issued"
In a separate move, Falkirk Council has entered into a similar 3 year Framework Agreement with Vacman. The company will clear and clean vacant properties for the Authority starting on 1st September. Commenting upon the new contract, Neil Montgomery said "We are very pleased to be adding Falkirk Council as a client. Vacman continue to lead the way when it comes to the provision of these services in Scotland. We are confident that Falkirk will receive the same high quality, responsive service that we currently provide to several of their neighbouring social housing organisations in central Scotland"
