Channel 4 changes channel to MITIE

19 May 2011

MITIE has signed a new three year plus one contract to provide an integrated facilities management to Channel 4 saving the broadcaster 10 percent a year.

MITIE currently delivers front-of-house, mail & courier, cleaning & waste and landscaping services, and with this new contract will add security and engineering maintenance to its offering. Channel 4’s decision to bundle the majority of services under the MITIE umbrella will translate into circa ten per cent annual savings for the broadcaster.
Under the new contract MITIE will employ 79 people to service Channel 4’s landmark 120,000 square foot headquarters where 750 people work. This figure is expected to reach 1,000 within the next year as buildings are consolidated.
MITIE’s relationship with Channel 4 began in 2007 and evolved with individual contracts added in 2008 and 2009. The new integrated FM contract will cut down on management costs at Channel 4, by consolidating services and reducing the number of providers.
Debra Ward, Managing Director of MITIE’s Client Services business, said:
“This is an outstanding win for us and we’re delighted to be extending our relationship with Channel 4, having worked with them since 2007. Both companies have a true focus on people and the total FM contract will allow us to work together in true partnership. The whole team will be working to the hotel philosophy of having a common goal and focus.”
Julie Kortens, Head of Corporate Services at Channel 4, said: “Following the outsourcing of its transmission facility, Channel 4 is in the process of transforming its headquarter building and MITIE will play an integral part in delivering both the physical and cultural change. As partners for the last three years MITIE has consistently shown it understands Channel 4’s DNA, and operates as part of our team. We embraced the transition to an integrated service model because MITIE understands our company and is an innovative partner for the future.”
