The Apollo Group has won a three year contract, worth £2.5 million per year, with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.
The project, which will commence this autumn, with the potential to extend for a further two years, will see Apollo deliver kitchen and bathroom refurbishments to part of the Council’s 6000 units of housing stock.
Since launching its Midlands office in Tamworth last year, Apollo has secured work across the region, from Milton Keynes, Cambridge, and Ipswich, up to Birmingham, Shropshire and North West Leicestershire.
Regional Director, Dan Germann, said: "Apollo's reputation in the Midlands has continued to build and we are delighted to have this opportunity to work for Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council for the first time. We look forward to building a relationship with the Council and the local community over the coming years, and to consolidating Apollo’s Midlands foothold.
