We have won a three-year contract with Thrive Homes to provide ground maintenance and arboriculture services. The services will be provided across 104 schemes, primarily in the Three Rivers District around Watford.
Thrive is a business built around the importance of the home, providing a foundation that enables individuals and families to build the lives they want. Thrive manages around 5,000 homes throughout Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Oxfordshire. The Home Counties provides residents with an ideal mixture of beautiful countryside, excellent leisure facilities, and historic buildings.
James Kelly, our managing director, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity and we’re so pleased to win such a great contract. We look forward to developing a strategic partnership with Thrive and improving the lives of its customers. We want to help develop social enterprises, expand with locally based supply chains, and promote employment opportunities to residents. These are exciting times ahead with this contract and we can’t wait to get started.”
We have over 30 years’ experience delivering grounds maintenance to the social housing sector and a long history of excellent customer relations and delivering great services. Thrive wanted to consolidate its ground maintenance provision to one service provider in this area to improve the service and create better community partnerships.
Rebecca Handley, relationship management lead at Thrive, commented: “Chequers demonstrated a solid understanding of our customers’ needs throughout the tender process. Coupled with their proven experience in delivering quality grounds maintenance services, I have every confidence Chequers will deliver against our fair standards. We look forward to working in partnership with Chequers to provide an improved grounds maintenance service for our customers.”
