We are providing Yell with a Total Facilities Management service which builds on the previous technical services solution delivered by McAlpine. In the next couple of years, Carillion will be assisting Yell with its move into a new headquarters in Reading, and we will use all of our expertise to ensure the new building is fully maintainable and the relocation process is professionally managed.
