LLL: new contracts worth c£250 million awarded to five contractors

Not only will these new contracts help ensure we achieve the Lambeth London Living by 2017, but we are confident they will deliver value for money for all residents. All five contractors have given us a commitment to help create apprenticeships and training opportunities as well as supporting local businesses where possible.” Councillor Pete Robbins, Cabinet Member for Housing and Regeneration

Lambeth London Living working in partnership with the London Borough of Lambeth has confirmed the contractors who will deliver the next tranche of work as part of its £450m Lambeth London Living programme. The new contracts which come into force on 1 April 2014, are for four years with options for a two year extension. They have been awarded to five contractors.

Representatives from the five firms met with Cllr Pete Robbins, Neil Litherland, Ola Akinfe and the team from Lambeth London Living on Tuesday 25 March 2023 for an official signing ceremony at the Town Hall.

Ola Akinfe, Director of Property Services at Lambeth London Living, said: “These contracts are arranged in a unique way to ensure we achieve the LLL by 2017.  Breyers, Mears and Keepmoat have been allocated geo-graphical areas in the borough. Lakehouse and Mulalley will serve as reserve contractors ensuring continuity of work if one of the main contractors leaves or is unable to handle the full work schedule.”

“The contractors will be expected to deliver around £250m of work as part of the ongoing LLL programme. Works will be focused on roof, window and external door replacements, but there will also be an element of internal decent homes upgrades including boiler replacements, plumbing, rewiring, and installation of new kitchens and bathrooms.”

“These latest contracts represent excellent value for money. The ability to deliver wider community benefits in line with our joint vision and ensure sustainability were also top priorities for the procurement. Breyers, Mears, Keepmoat, Lakehouse and Mulalley will all contribute to meet our joint vision of creating apprenticeships, training opportunities, share basic DIY skills involvement for residents and help support local SMEs, where possible.”

The Lambeth Housing Standard was co-produced between 5,600 Lambeth residents, Lambeth London Living and the Council. Fresh contractual capacity was needed to deliver agreed objectives within the LLL by 2017. The winning firms were awarded the contracts after an extensive OJEU compliant competitive tendering process which generated competitive rates from bidders.
