Saltire takes two new contract awards

Saltire Facilities Management, a national central heating and electrical services provider based in Glasgow, has secured new business with South Lanarkshire Council and Almond Housing Association.

The contract award with South Lanarkshire Council will see Saltire deliver a programme of domestic fixed electrical testing for up to 5,000 homes across the region.

Saltire, who has a long history delivering home improvement works for various councils and housing associations throughout Scotland, will complete inspection and testing of electrical systems including undertaking any remedial works in order to ensure each installation is fully compliant. Though the programme of works is subject to change due to Covid restrictions, Saltire is expected to deliver home improvements to between 3,500 and 5,000 homes across the South Lanarkshire region.

The contract, worth approximately £340,000 is for an 18-month period with a further potential 18 months extension available.

Speaking of the contract award, Electrical Manager, Steven Kerrigan commented: “Winning this contract is testament to the quality and reputation of our local electrical team. I am looking forward to developing our relationship with South Lanarkshire Council and supporting them to deliver this programme of home improvements for their tenants.”

Saltire has also secured a £930,000 boiler replacement and central heating upgrade contract with Livingston-based Almond Housing Association.

The three-year deal, which will see Saltire work with Almond Housing Association for the first time, extends the company’s footprint across Lothian.

Under the contract terms, Saltire’s team of expert gas and heating engineers will complete cyclical boiler replacements and a programme of planned central heating upgrades to the benefit of Almond Housing Association’s many tenants.

Almond Housing Association, which has been operating for over 20 years, is the largest housing association in West Lothian with over 2,500 properties.

Installations Director Alan Murray commented: “I am delighted to welcome Almond Housing Association into our growing portfolio of clients. Saltire is very well established in the West of Scotland with regional offices across the UK so it is great to continue expanding our delivery footprint. I am looking forward to sharing my many years’ experience with the team at Almond HA and helping them to deliver quality homes for their tenants.”
