Interserve has won a £500 million facilities management for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The sustainable built environment workplace support contract covers 186 sites throughout England and Wales and involves three Category 4 laboratories, 39 Category 3 laboratories, 226 other laboratories and 162 offices.

The 15 year deal has a core services value of £500 million but it is expected that the full value of services delivered, including projects and additional works, will exceed this.

The projects includes a number of core Executive Agencies including:

* Animal Health

* Central Science Laboratory

* Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science

* Government Decontamination Services

* Marine & Fisheries Agency

* Regulatory Science Agency

* Rural Payments Agency

* Veterinary Laboratories Agency

Interserve chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “Defra's vision required a fresh approach to service delivery.

“Our response is a total accommodation service model that encompasses sustainability, exemplar FM service, asset management and space and workplace management. We have selected, combined and developed the best practices from across PFI, PPP and traditional FM contracting into a unique, responsive and innovative service model."
