Cofathec delivers sustainability for BERR

06 March 2008

Cofathec has been awarded a contract with the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), formerly known as the DTI, and the BERR’s managing agents E C Harris.The contract is for 5 years and covers mechanical, electrical and fabric maintenance services and energy management across 9 sites ranging from London to Scotland.

A key element in the award of the contract was Cofathec’s energy management expertise and ability to help the BERR meet its sustainability targets over the next five years and beyond. To that end, Cofathec has appointed a full-time energy manager to the BERR contract, in support of the other 21 members of the team.

Reactive calls will be dealt with through a dedicated help desk serving all BERR sites, which also assists in the measurement of performance against key performance indicators (KPIs). This is an important component of the contract as there will be penalties for any failings in service delivery, but rewards for exceeding KPIs and introducing innovative practices and processes
