Three contractors have been appointed to Halton Housing Trust's framework to deliver more than 30 miles of perimeter fencing to 4,000 properties.
The £9.5m framework is expected to be completed over the next four years and will include single access and driveway gates within neighbourhoods across Runcorn and Widnes.
Rochdale-based building and refurbishment company, P Casey, Preston-based social housing regeneration specialist, Forrest, and Bolton-based George Cox & Sons, which provides landscaping services, have all been selected on the framework.
Forrest has sole responsibility for delivery during the first year of the framework.
Forrest has a long established relationship with Halton Housing Trust. Earlier this year, it secured a place on the trust's £40m Beyond The Garden Gate neighbourhood investment programme for Runcorn and Widnes.
Mark Lyons, managing director at Forrest, said: "For us, this agreement is testament to our own commitment to building lasting partnerships with our clients by delivering high quality projects and working responsibly within their neighbourhoods."
