Operon wins three FM contracts

19 November 2008

Operon FM has won three new contracts to provide a range of hard and soft FM services. They include: The NHS Rotherham; The University of York; and The Hydrogen Research Facility, University of Glamorgan.

Operon FM will provide FM services for the new NHS Rotherham Community Health Centre. The site consists of a three-storey building, which will be made up of clinical and office space totalling 5,400m2. The scope of works includes Maintenance, Help Desk, Grounds Maintenance, Portering, Waste Management and Security. This is a five-year contract with an optional extension, with an initial value of over £2 million. Duncan Smales, commissioning and change manager for NHS Rotherham, said: “We are delighted to be working with Operon FM to deliver our facilities management needs at this prestigious new development.”

The University of York has also appointed Operon FM to provide window cleaning services and periodic deep cleans to its main campus for the next three years. Martin Sperring, stores co-ordinator, University of York, said: “We have a beautiful campus at the University of York and we're very pleased that Operon will be helping us to keep it that way.”

The new Hydrogen Research facility at Baglan Energy Park in South Wales is managed by the University of Glamorgan, which has awarded Operon FM a contract for the provision of total FM services, including Security, Grounds Maintenance, Waste Management, Help Desk, Cleaning, and Maintenance Management. Philip Sands, facilities manager, University of Glamorgan, said: “The University is delighted to have Operon on board at this brand new facility.”

Peter Brooke, Operon FM development director, said: “These new contracts are strategically placed within our operational portfolio in the UK and are particularly interesting in that they allow us to demonstrate the benefits of an integrated approach to FM and to further expand our portfolio across education, health and research facilities.”

Operon FM also recently announced it had won a £2.5 million, two-year contract, to provide FM services at the Low Level Waste Repository in West Cumbria.
