MSS wins contract extension from Bruntwood

29 July 2010

Bruntwood has awarded a £multi-million three-year contract extension to MSS maintain all mechanical services across 80 office buildings in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

MSS (Managed Support Services plc) has been working with Bruntwood, one of the largest owners of corporate real estate in the north of England, since 2007, when it was appointed to handle the maintenance of an air conditioning system at a single office site in Manchester. The contract has since expanded into a planned preventative maintenance programme for more than 95 percent of Bruntwood’s managed property portfolio, equating to more than 5.5m sq ft, covering all heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. MSS delivers each aspect of a building lifecycle including design, installation, maintenance and refurbishment.
MSS also provides Bruntwood with a range of additional services to help the company exceed legislative requirements for building management. This has included advice, support and data collection for gas safety assessments and compliance, F-Gas compliance, air conditioning inspections and Energy Performance Certificates.
As part of the new contract, MSS will look at ways to support Bruntwood’s focus on sustainable development, environmental performance and reduction of energy costs for their office customers. The two companies will work in partnership to develop a new concept aimed at reducing energy consumption, reactive maintenance, extending equipment life cycles and promoting environmental best practice across all sites.
Iain Grant, Facilities Director at Bruntwood, commented: “MSS has worked closely with us to save both time and money, whilst taking away the legislative burden we face as property owners. The level of service provided has been to a high standard, providing us with an improved understanding of our asset performance and customer satisfaction in this important area of our business. We look forward to growing the relationship further moving forward.”
Jamie Reynolds, Chief Operating Officer at Managed Support Services plc, said: “This latest contract is recognition of our ability to develop tailored building solutions that deliver service excellence, operational transparency and legislative compliance. Our open and honest partnership approach combines flexibility and fresh thinking, so we have been able to listen to Bruntwood to deliver a solution that meets their precise business needs.”
