Carillion JV lands £200m defence deal

A Carillion joint venture (JV) has been awarded the HESTIA South East and London Region Multi Activity Contract by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). 

It is one of seven regional Multi Activity HESTIA contracts that will be awarded by the DIO in order to provide a consistent quality of soft facilities management services for everyone living and working on the UK defence estate.

The contract, which according to Carillion has the potential to generate in excess of £200 million across the initial contract period of five years will see the JV deliver a range of soft FM services, including catering, retail and leisure, and hotel and mess services, for 87 key defence sites across Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire and Central and Greater London.

Carillion will use the HESTIA South East and London contract to create further opportunities to demonstrate its commitment to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, which helps ex-service personnel find employment and supports the recruitment of Reservists.

Speaking about the new deal, 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 Defence Infrastructure Organisation, 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.”

The contract will go live at the beginning of September 2017 and will employ over 1,800 people.
