CPA were appointed by Blackwood Homes in February 2012 to review and advise on the status of their Grounds Maintenance contracts over the various Scottish Regions. 3no. sites for Pilot Remedials were quickly identified and works to gardens in Paisley, Bridge of Allan and Montrose commenced in April 2014 and completed within 4 weeks. The sites set the standard for the proposed major Grounds Maintenence contract to be tendered in 2014. Nationally the Homes portfolio of 90 no. sites with 26no. contractors were reorganized into 3no. Regions with 3no. contractors controlling 30no. sites each. Resulting efficiencies in standards with improved administration ensued.
