Casey has been awarded two new social housing contracts with Six Town Housing, taking its property refurbishment total to 2000 as part of a £15.8 million neighbourhood project, funded by Bury Council.

Casey, which has worked with Six Town Housing since 2008 and has completed 1,692 house refurbishments to date, will contract 45 per cent of its workforce from Bury, including ten NVQ placements, to deliver the next phase of the project to deliver 454 homes across Trinity Green and Heath Avenue residential estates.

These new works involve kitchen, bathroom and heating installations at the houses on instruction of Six Town Housing, an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) that delivers neighbourhood services to approximately 8000 homes across Bury on behalf of Bury Council.

 

Since Casey's original framework appointment with Six Town Housing in 2008 and its subsequent independent contract awards, the company has completed works using its established apprentice scheme, employing local long-term unemployed residents, and youths Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEETs). The trained apprentices have now secured full time roles with Six Town Housing as members of its Repairs Direct Team.

Emma Richman, Director of Assets at Six Town Housing, added: “As one of our delivery partners, Casey Group has worked alongside us for a number of years to improve our community services while directly impacting upon local employment. We look forward to officially welcoming the latest additions to the team.”

Chris Casey, Managing Director of The Casey Group Ltd, said: "Our ongoing relationship with Six Town Housing is a result of the synergy in our work values and experience to invest in and benefit the local community to generate economic growth. We are very pleased to have been selected for the latest phase of refurbishment works and to reach this significant milestone in Six Town Housing's services together."
