Rok wins major Bristol contract worth 37.5m

Bristol builder Rok has won a major framework contract with Bristol City Council worth 37.5m over five years. Rok is one of just two companies selected by the council for its planned major repairs and improvements programme to housing stock in the north of the city.

It is the latest major framework contract to be won by Rok's Bristol office this year, and brings the total value of such contracts to more than 60m. Rok is already working in partnership with Anchor Trust in the South West and North East on a 11.6m annual planned repairs and maintenance programme.

Recently Rok was also appointed by the Sovereign Development Consortium, made up of 12 housing associations, to carry out development and new building work across the South West.

Rok area leader, Charlie Scherer, said: "This contract with Bristol City Council represents a major milestone for our Bristol office and is recognition of the quality and expertise we have in this area.

"It provides us with a stream of programmed work for the next five years for which we will be using local labour, and further cements our ambition to be seen as the nation?s local builder in the communities where we work."
