Council awards new gas maintenance contract
Aberdeen City Council has appointed a new firm to manage the service and maintenance contracts for gas in its housing stock.
Following a tendering process, the council appointed Gas Call Services Ltd to carry out this work.
The new contract will take effect from midnight tonight [09 January].
Tenants are advised that from midnight, all repair and maintenance calls about gas should be directed to the council's Customer Contact Centre on 08456 080 929.
The Customer Contact Centre will log the call and pass the relevant information to Gas Call for its engineers to deal with either over the phone or in person.
Richard Irvin Services Group, the previous contract holder, will continue to complete jobs up until the new contract takes effect.
Anyone who suspects there is a gas leak in or near their property is asked to contact the Scottish Gas Network on 0800 111 999.
