Peabody in the news

Peabody has appointed Axis, one of the UK’s leading construction and property services companies, for its £90 million responsive repairs contract.

The 10-year contract, which starts on 3 March 2014, covers planned and responsive repairs, void refurbishment works, and pest control services to Peabody’s 20,000 properties across the capital. Axis already provides an interim responsive repairs service to Peabody. 

Peabody residents played a key role in the selection process, with Axis chosen for its strong health and safety record, cost efficiency and drive  to continuously improving customer satisfaction. Residents will benefit from a faster, more efficient, two priority system for emergency and routine repairs.

Tim Keogh, Director of Property Services at Peabody, said:

“We are pleased to announce the appointment of Axis and look forward to continuing our successful partnership. Peabody residents have shaped the service they would like to see delivered, and were impressed with Axis' commitment to resident involvement and the employment and training opportunities that they offer."

John Hayes, Chief Executive at Axis, said:

“We are delighted to have secured a new 10-year contract with Peabody having worked tirelessly on the interim contract. Peabody and Axis have closely aligned values, with a strong commitment to people and communities. We look forward to providing a great service to Peabody residents for many years to come, building on the customer satisfaction enhancements already achieved through teamwork and relationship building.”
