Carillion wins £200m Defence Infrastructure contract

A Carillion joint venture has bagged a £200m facilities management contract with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

The Carillion-led team has been awarded the HESTIA South-east and London region multi-activity contract, which will see the company provide facilities management services for 87 defence sites across the South-east.

The contract will cover catering, retail and leisure hotel and mess services on defence sites in Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire and London.

The South-east deal is one of the seven HESTIA contracts to be let by the DIO and will go live at the start of September 2017.

It is the latest Ministry of Defence contract won by Carillion after its joint venture with Amey scooped DIO’s Next Generation Estates contracts worth nearly £1bn, covering housing maintenance and construction on defence properties across the UK.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: “We are extremely proud that our Carillion joint venture has been selected for this major contract.

“We look forward to building on our existing strong relationship with the DIO, and to working with the DIO and senior military personnel to deliver a range of services that will help to improve the lives of service personnel.”
