Countrywide Grounds has won a new five-year contract with Greenfields Community Housing. They will deliver grounds maintenance to green spaces surrounding its 8,500 homes across Braintree. The contract is worth over £1 million and started on January 1 2019.
Greenfields has awarded Countrywide the contract to provide a year-round grounds maintenance service. They will work across its towns and villages.
The work will include over half a million square metres of grass cutting and litter collection. There will also be over three hectares of pruning and two and a half of weeding, and over four kilometres of hedge cutting. Also, a gritting service will be available for the residents in Housing for Older People Schemes to ensure paths remain clear and safe.
Andrew Gilliar, Regional Director of Countrywide Essex, said:
“We are happy to win this new contract with Greenfields Community Housing. Our teams trained to the highest standards, and they have the commitment and enthusiasm necessary to provide a service that’s second to none. We recognise that Greenfields’ housing and their appearance are key to the standing of its organisation. We will do everything to ensure that their grounds will always look their best. We are happy to have already started the work and look forward to the seasons ahead.”
Diane Foley, Head of Neighbourhoods at Greenfields Community Housing, added:
“We take pride in our neighbourhoods. We are looking forward to working with Countrywide to ensure our residents get the communal areas and services they deserve.”
