Keepmoat secures new £9m regeneration contract win in Renfrewshire

KeepmoatHundreds of residents are set to benefit after Keepmoat was appointed to carry out improvement works to over 600 homes in Renfrewshire.

Renfrewshire Council has appointed the housing and regeneration specialist for the £9 million scheme which will include external wall insulation, re-roofing, rendering and structural repairs to Phases 9 and 10 of the Common Blocks as well as landscaping improvements.

Keepmoat has previously secured six previous Phases worth over £12m of external refurbishment work to date, on the Common Blocks framework contract for the council.

As part of Renfrewshire Council’s Investment Programme, Keepmoat has so far carried out £18m of external refurbishment works and £26m of internal refurbishment works including 3,500 kitchen and bathroom renewals, 2,000 central heating installations and 4,000 electrical rewires.

The contract win is a huge boost to Keepmoat which currently employs over 250 staff and sub contractors between its offices at Linwood and Cambuslang.

Keepmoat is expecting to grow its workforce in Scotland after announcing in January that it is looking for sites to construct its first new build houses north of the border.

Keepmoat has been working on refurbishment contracts in Scotland for more than five years but this would be the first time that the company has brought its model of high-quality entry-level housing to Scotland.

Eamonn McGarvey, regional director of Keepmoat, said: “We are looking forward to starting this project and helping to improve the lives of hundreds of Renfrewshire residents. This contract win is a huge boost for our team in Scotland and is testament to the fantastic work we have carried out on behalf of Renfrewshire Council over the past five years.”
