MITIE mightier in the Midlands

22 September 2011

MITIE has secured a four-year minor works and maintenance contract with the West Midlands Construction Framework valued up to £350 million, with the possibility of a further two-plus-two years extension.

Current works include reactive and planned repair and maintenance to all non-housing Council owned buildings, primarily with the Birmingham City Council South area. As part of this framework, MITIE is eligible to work with up to 13 other local authorities within the West Midlands. The team has been working with Birmingham City Council since 1995, providing reactive and planned repair and maintenance to all non-housing Council owned buildings.

As part of the contract MITIE will be supporting local employment with a commitment to create at least 15 trainee or apprenticeship placements and to develop small and medium enterprises within their supply chain.

Cllr Randal Brew, Cabinet Member for Finance at Birmingham City Council, said: “We’ve worked with MITIE for over 15 years and are delighted to continue our partnership as part of this larger framework agreement. We were looking for a company who could not only provide a great service, but also provide real value for money and invest in the local area. MITIE has a proven track record to deliver on all these counts. I'm sure they will be a key player in the new framework in the months and years ahead.”

Bill Robson, Managing Director of MITIE’s Property Management business, said: “We’re delighted to be part of the West Midlands Construction Framework. In addition to our work with Birmingham City Council, we look forward to working with other local authorities as part of this framework and investing in the local area through back-to-work programmes.”

The new framework adds to MITIE’s portfolio in the Midlands, including non-housing works and maintenance in Walsall Council and Tamworth Borough Council.
