Saltire Facilities Management is delighted to have been awarded a three-year contract to deliver gas servicing and maintenance in more than 130 properties owned by Bield Housing & Care.

The contract, awarded by Bield Housing in April this year, will involve gas servicing and maintenance for properties across Tayside, Angus and Fife. While the contract, which has an indicative value of approximately £400,000, is initially set to run for three years, there is the possibility that it may be extended to 2026.

Saltire’s highly qualified and experienced engineers are also known for their focus on customer service, and are well-versed in making sure that residents feel at ease when allowing tradespeople into their homes. A large part of Saltire’s focus throughout the pandemic has been working with homeowners and tenants to reassure them that all work is undertaken according to strict Covid-safe guidelines.

Bield Housing & Care is one of the largest providers of housing for older people in Scotland, and they are committed to improving the quality of life for residents, by offering diverse housing, care, and other services. Due to their caring ethos, Saltire is especially proud to be have awarded the contract, which is recognition of the quality and customer service we bring to every job or contract, no matter how large or small.

Saltire Managing Director John Reynold, said “All of our tradespeople are first class, both in terms of their skills, but also when it comes to working with tenants and homeowners – some of whom have had concerns about letting people into their homes, especially during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We’re proud to be able to reassure people that we work to Covid-safe guidelines at all times, and we feel that this contract award from Bield Housing & Care is a reflection of how the Saltire name is regarded across Scotland, as a company you can trust for quality and excellent customer service.”
