Inspace awarded £2m building fabric contact with Surrey County Council

02 October 2007

The company will deliver a planned and reactive maintenance programme of work to the council’s corporate estate including schools, libraries, youth centres, offices and fire stations.

Inspace has been appointed by Surrey County Council as its provider of building fabric maintenance for an initial contract of nine months. The Council is currently planning a longer-term contract subsequent to an EU procurement exercise.
The contract, worth £2m to Inspace, will see the company deliver a planned programme of work to the council’s corporate estate, covering buildings like schools, libraries, youth centres, offices and fire stations. Also included will be reactive on-call maintenance, where engineers respond to a maintenance situation when it arises.

It is the first time Surrey County Council has opted to use a partnering relationship for its building fabric maintenance needs and this should provide enhanced efficiency. Inspace will work with Mouchel Parkman, which is the Council’s building maintenance consultant, during the nine-month contract, and both aim to show that this strategic link-up can deliver innovative and better ways of working in fabric maintenance instead of using a fragmented supply chain.

Duncan Forbes, chief operating officer at Inspace, said, “We are looking forward to building a strong relationship with Surrey and demonstrating that this partnering arrangement can deliver significant efficiencies in terms of productivity and value for money. That includes using our economies of scale and creating a partnership approach of shared goals and mutual benefit with the council and Mouchel Parkman.“

Surrey now becomes one of the biggest non-housing public sector customers for Inspace, which has continued to grow its workload with local authorities by securing recent framework contracts with Leicester City Council and Haringey Council worth a combined £3m.
