Clarion Southern Region

  • Project:Clarion Southern Region
  • Client:Clarion
  • Contract value:£25m per annum

This £125m major repairs and maintenance contract is one of the largest awarded in the sector and followed an intensive selection process. The contract is to undertake all planned maintenance and gas servicing work across 14,000 properties in Clarion’s Southern region.

Challenges

A major challenge for this project is the wide geographical spread of properties which covers areas managed by three former associations now part of the Clarion Maintenance Group; Merton Priory Homes in South West London, Mole Valley Homes in Dorking and Leatherhead areas of Surrey and Russet Homes in the Tonbridge area of Kent.

We are addressing this through operating bases across the South East, together with our online project management system (FLAG) which programmes and manages the works.

FLAG

FLAG provides real time access to all information relating to properties including contact details, survey documents, photos, plans and certificates which allows us to effectively programme and record work to people’s homes.

FLAG is a collaborative tool that can be accessed by clients, consultants and subcontractors and reflects the transparent way we work with our partners.

Making a difference

  • We are working with Clarion to create a tailor-made package of community initiatives
  • We have committed to support Clarion’s pledge to ‘Enhance Life Chances’ including a new employment and training programme which will see circa 50 new apprentices taken on during the project.
