Pinnacle PSG wins five-year deal to maintain green spaces and "add colour"

Pinnacle PSG has won a five-year deal worth around £100,000 annually to look after estates and open spaces in Margate and Ramsgate.

The contract with Orbit South is due to start on 7 January and the grounds contractors will tackle upkeep over 100 sites in the Thanet area. It will involve grass cutting, care of flowerbeds and shrubs, tree maintenance and keeping hard surfaces neat and tidy. 

Pinnacle PSG would also help Orbit South plan its future landscape development and help to deliver projects funded under community investment, said head of estate services Matthew Walker.

"The contract win means that Pinnacle PSG has now spread its coverage further into Kent where it already provides services for Dartford Borough Council and Riverside Housing Association."

"We have a track record of delivering efficient services to clients and residents, working with them to develop projects that enhance their estates and the area, which is second to none. This is a great win for Pinnacle PSG."

A key element of the contract was Orbit South’s desire to find a contractor that could "go beyond the standard grounds maintenance services and help Orbit add colour to its estates", he said of the client which runs over 13,000 homes in the south east.

At the bid stage Pinnacle PSG showed a team of Orbit South residents and staff a variety of examples of previous projects it had devised for other clients including Lambeth in south London and CityWest Homes in Westminster.

Karen Williams, head of estate services at Orbit South, said; "We look forward to working in partnership with the contractor to deliver a first-rate service to our residents and help grow our communities."
