Liverpool builder Rok has secured new maintenance and refurbishment contracts across the North West worth more than £2m to the company.

The construction firm has been appointed by Halton Council to manage repairs and maintenance of all municipal buildings across the borough, including schools.

Rok also recently announced it had secured a 12-month contract with Anchor Trust to provide a 24-hour, 365-day responsive service for more than 1,000 homes at 40 retirement housing locations across Merseyside and Cheshire.

A large scale bathroom replacement programme with Weaver Vale Housing Trust is now underway, which Rok has been appointed to install new facilities for 500 homes in Northwich. Residents at a North West Housing Services scheme in Toxteth will also gain new kitchens, installed by Rok.

Venture Housing Association, which owns and manages 1,300 homes in Liverpool and the Wirral, has also appointed the company to convert a large Victorian home into a number of dwellings.

Wayne Booth, Rok area leader, said: "Our approach to our work, our experience and use of our skilled teams of tradesman, are attracting interest from local authorities, housing association and private businesses across the area."
