Ashfield Homes and Ashfield District Council selected J Tomlinson following an open tender to carry out improvements to the council’s housing stock over the next five years.

Work will include replacement kitchens, bathrooms, central heating systems, electrical installations, roof coverings, windows and external doors.

Ashfield Homes manages Ashfield District Council’s rented housing stock of about 6,900 properties.

J Tomlinson managing director Steve Kirkland said: “This is the largest single contract we have ever been awarded and will lead to the creation of up to 40 new jobs in the local area, and will provide work for at least 12 apprentices over the next five years.

“We have worked on refurbishment, maintenance and repairs contracts for Ashfield Homes for more than ten years now, and we are genuinely excited about the prospect of further strengthening our close working partnership with Ashfield Homes. 

“It is our intention to open a new base in the area to service this new contract, and we have also devised a programme of community involvement in association with Ashfield Homes, which will include offering apprenticeship and work experience opportunities, mentoring support, employment and training events, as well as school activities.”
