Interserve and Vinci have bagged multi-million-pound contracts to manage the upkeep of Transport for London’s facilities.
TfL announced its intention to award the five new contracts for the management of its sites, worth a combined total of £320m.
Engie Services and Lanes Group also bagged two of the five contracts, which will last for five years, with an option to be extended for an extra three.
The suppliers will be responsible for the management of TfL facilities, including M&E, power and water work, buildings maintenance and security.
The new contracts are part of mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s plans to cut costs at TfL and will see 50 existing contracts consolidated into just five.
The consolidation of the contracts is expected to save the Transport for London £34m.
The successful contractors will be expected to create around 300 apprenticeships throughout the life of the deal, as well as pay workers the London living wage.
TfL chief procurement officer David Wylie said: “We are looking forward to working with our suppliers on these new contracts and by consolidating the existing arrangements, our facilities will be managed in a more efficient and cost-effective way.
“We are committed to making sure that our organisation is representative of the customers that it serves and inspiring the next generation into the transport industry.
“These new contracts reaffirm how both TfL and our suppliers consider skills and equality and diversity to be key priorities that we need to deliver on.”
