MITIE retains and expands integrated facilities management contract with the Cumbrian Collaboration

MITIE Group PLC, the strategic outsourcing and energy services company, has successfully retained and expanded a contract to provide integrated facilities management (FM) and energy services to the Cumbrian Collaboration.

The FTSE 250 company has been awarded the contract for a period of five years, with a possible extension to a seven year maximum. The Cumbrian Collaboration includes Sellafield Limited, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Direct Rail Services, Low Level Waste Repository Limited and International Nuclear Services.

The new contract will cover over 500 buildings across a range of sites in the UK, with major activity in Sellafield, Cumbria and Cheshire and has an estimated total value of £200 million over the term of the contract. MITIE will start the enlarged integrated FM contract in January 2012.

Over 500 people will be employed as part of the contract and the services provided will include: facilities management, building maintenance; security; cleaning; waste management; catering and other FM and energy services.

This award builds on MITIE’s 11-year relationship with both Sellafield Limited and the NDA and is a testament to the quality of service and strong health and safety record that has been delivered by the MITIE team.

The contract was tendered through the Government Procurement Service (formerly the Office of Government and Commerce Buying Solutions), Facilities Management Framework Agreement.

Ruby McGregor-Smith, Chief Executive of MITIE Group PLC, said: “This is another excellent contract award for MITIE and we are delighted to be developing our strategic relationship with the Cumbrian Collaboration. We have an extensive track record of supporting them in the management of their estate and look forward to working with them to provide world-class outsourced and energy services in the coming years.”
