Mitie has signed a five-year contract to provide £200 million worth of facilities management (FM) across nuclear sites in the UK.
The outsourcing and energy services firm has retained and expanded its work with the Cumbrian Collaboration, which consists of Sellafield Limited, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Direct Rail Services, Low Level Waste Repository Limited and International Nuclear Services.
It 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, which could potentially be extended to seven years.
Mitie chief executive Ruby McGregor-Smith 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.”
The firm will start the enlarged integrated FM contract in January 2012.
Over 500 people will be employed as part of the contract, which covers FM management, building maintenance, security, cleaning, waste management, catering and other FM and energy services.
Mitie said it builds on its 11-year relationship with both Sellafield Ltd and the NDA.
The contract was tendered through the Government Procurement Service (formerly the Office of Government and Commerce Buying Solutions), Facilities Management Framework Agreement.
