OCS Expands Through Investment in i2 Office

22 February 2011

OCS has made a significant financial commitment to take a stake in the i2 Office business, a leading provider of premium managed office space. This investment - from OCS and three other major investors - supports i2 Office’s expansion to new centres in prime locations across the UK. In turn, it provides OCS with the opportunity to develop its total facilities management (TFM) business portfolio

The first new serviced office centre opened since the partnership began is in City Site Estate’s new Grade A office scheme in Glasgow.

In 2009, OCS won the contract to supply a comprehensive range of FM services to i2 Office’s headquarters and flagship site in Milton Keynes. The services provided include customer services, reception, vending, waste management, confidential waste destruction, daily and specialist cleaning, washroom and feminine hygiene and document management. These are commensurate with the needs of business users in the 21st century with the fit-out and fabric of the building managed directly by i2 Office and the operational management and FM services supplied by OCS. In 2010, OCS was short listed for a BIFM ‘Innovation in Customer Service’ award for both its financial modelling customer feedback work with i2 Office.

Martin Gammon, Managing Director of OCS Group UK Ltd, welcomed the development of the relationship with i2 Office saying, “Total FM should be more than just outsourcing: it should be a partnership between client and FM provider. True added value only really begins to show when this is achieved.”

CEO of i2 Office, Philip Grace, commented, “The fact that we have attracted such major investment at a time of economic austerity is a testament to the belief in our product and creates a partnership that can deliver in an exciting marketplace. We are delighted to welcome on board OCS and the other investors and look forward to expanding to new centres in prime locations across the UK in 2011. I have every confidence of a bright outlook for i2 Office in 2011 and beyond.”
