Growth for Engie and Bellrock in latest industry consolidation moves

16 April 2018

Two new developments emphasise how the FM sector is continuing to experience change in a number of areas.

An interim deal has been announced at Queen Alexandra Hospital, part of Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, following the collapse of Carillion.

This will see Engie deliver the services previously supplied, including cleaning, maintenance, car parking and pest control.

Initially covering three to six months, the new arrangement has been put in place until a permanent contract is agreed between Engie and the hospital.

Carillion previously employed approximately 700 staff at the hospital, all of whom will transfer to Engie, according to Portsmouth Hospitals Trust chief executive Mark Cubbon.

The deal was announced following collaboration between the trust and Project Co, which is responsible for the delivery of FM services, leading to the agreement with Engie.

Mr Cubbon stated that staff had continued to "operate business as usual" following the collapse of their employer.

Bellrock has also announced the acquisition of Yorkshire-based ECO Integrated Property Solutions, the provider of FM and property management services across the UK.

Including the delivery of both hard and soft services, the company's clients covered the healthcare, retail and leisure and corporate office sectors.

Following its acquisition, the company will continue to be led by Andrew Walker and Derek Holding.

It is the eighth acquisition by Bellrock within the last two years, with chief executive officer David Smith stating the deal will "provide further exciting new service lines for our whole customer base".

No financial details were announced for either of the two latest FM consolidation announcements.
