Home Office awards FM to Interserve
11 March 2008
Interserve, the preferred bidder on a five-year contract with the Home Office, has been awarded the contract worth over £100m for the provision of FM services throughout the UK, and is one of four companies to have secured a place on the Home Office's Fit-Out and Refurbishment framework agreement with an overall potential value of £200m..
The Home Office FM contract, which can be extended for an additional two years, will cover south-west, north-east and north-west England, Wales and Scotland. Interserve will provide services ranging from maintenance, security, energy management, portering and reception to cleaning, housekeeping, catering and hospitality. The portfolio, covering 575 buildings, includes offices, training centres, residential accommodation and approved premises for the Ministry of Justice (the National Offender Management Service including the National Probation Service), the Home Office and its sponsored bodies. The contract is expected to begin in June. (Amey won the contract for FM work in London, the South East and East Anglia)
The four-year Fit-Out and Refurbishment framework agreement will also involve services for businesses across the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice. The estates are geographically dispersed throughout England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and include those belonging to the Border and Immigration Agency, the National Police Improvement Agency and the National Probation Service. The programme of work includes interior fit-out, refurbishment, general construction, mechanical and electrical works and new-build projects on a design-and-build basis. The framework has been created to drive improved value for money and better process integration across the breadth of the Home Office estates function, with the intention of ensuring that the quality of solutions improves continuously.
Adrian Ringrose, Interserve Chief Executive, remarked, "The twin successes with the Home Office in the UK show the value of our ability to provide services across the whole life of properties and other assets."
