More NIHE contract success for CTS

CTS Projects secures further multi-million contract with NI Housing Executive. L-R: Paul Isherwood, Director of Asset Management (NIHE), Serena Hylands, Assistant Managing Director (CTS Projects) and Ian McCrickard, Regional Manager for Belfast (NIHE).

The contract to carry out mechanical and electrical maintenance work across Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland and which spans 61 buildings including offices and multi-stories, will allow CTS Projects to create 10 jobs while also safeguarding its supply chain locally.

The news comes at the end of what has been a successful year for CTS Projects. The contractor won a £77.6m contract with the Housing Executive in July and a £14m contract with four housing associations in April.

Serena Hylands, Assistant Managing Director of CTS Projects, said: “We are delighted to have extended our relationship with the Housing Executive by securing this contract, which we believe is thanks to our innovative and competitive offering.

“This contract increases our market share and enables us to add 10 jobs to our current workforce. We started 2016 with 35 employees and we finish the year with 130 and still rising thanks to our recent high value contract wins.

“We are clearly experiencing a rapid growth trajectory and our focus moving into 2017 is to expand our offering in the Republic of Ireland, bringing our bespoke technology and professional approach to businesses and organisations right across the island.

“We’ve made significant investment in our own infrastructure and people over the past 12 to 18 months and are now very much ready to seize opportunities in new markets,” she added.

Housing Executive Belfast Regional Manager, Ian McCrickard, said: “I’d like to congratulate CTS Projects on their professionalism in securing this contract.

“Maintenance is such a key area of focus for us as we strive to keep our key buildings across our estate in top condition. We look forward to working with CTS Projects over the next three years.”

The contractor’s recent success has not gone unrecognised, winning the award NI Plumbing & Heating Domestic Oil Contractor of the Year at the NI Plumbing & Heating Awards in June 2016, and being named Northern Ireland’s Heating Installer of the Year by Installer magazine in March 2016.
