Hull City Council awards housing refurbishment specialist Lovell a further £3.9m contract to re-roof local council homes.

The extension will see Lovell carry out re-roofing work at more than 1,100 homes across the city. The latest phase of work is expected to be complete in March 2016 with up to 35 homes re-roofed each week.

Lovell has been working with the City Council since 2012, carrying out this large-scale re-roofing programme which includes the removal and renewal of roof coverings and the replacement of soffits, fascias and rainwater goods. The work has been awarded through the Efficiency North EN Procure Elemental Works framework.

Lovell regional director Robert Adams said: “We’re delighted to be continuing to work with Hull City Council to carry out this major refurbishment programme for council homes in Hull. It’s an important scheme which is delivering real improvements for local residents.”
