Building company FT Finley has been appointed to Manchester City Council's framework to prepare properties for disabled residents to live independently.
As well as bathroom modifications, the work will also involve external adaptations, such as providing ramped access or hand railings. The council anticipates spending £3m a year through the framework, which will last for at least three years. There will be an additional budget of £700,000 a year made available from 2013.
Also in the North West, Preston City Council has appointed FT Finley to its framework to supply and install alley gating, with the total expenditure estimated at £400,000.
Stockport-based FT Finley is one of eight suppliers appointed to Shropshire Council's 12-month construction contractor framework to carry out major electrical projects in the north of the borough.
Jay Finley, operations director at FT Finley, said: "We are already well established in the North West, and it's great to see that we are further cementing our position as a leading contractor in the region. In 2012, we also hope to strengthen our presence in other regions, so being appointed to Shropshire Council's framework is especially significant for us as well."
