Equans extends FM partnership with Manchester City Council

Equans will continue to provide FM services across Manchester City Council’s public buildings estate.

The three-year contract extension will see the energy and facilities management specialist providing responsive repairs and planned preventative maintenance to industry standard specifications across the Council’s portfolio of 258 buildings.

As part of the contract, which originally commenced in 2019, Equans has responsibility for repairing and maintaining Grade 1 and 2 listed buildings, including Manchester Town Hall – as well as care facilities where 24-hour service delivery is paramount.

As the partnership evolves into its next phase, Equans is collaborating with the Manchester City Council to work towards the city’s target of becoming net zero by 2038. This will be evident in the way Equans conducts its own operations and through targeted decarbonisation activities across the council’s property portfolio.

Richard Carmichael, Managing Director for Local Authority Services at Equans UK & Ireland said: “This is a terrific opportunity for us to build on an already strong and successful partnership with Manchester City Council and draw on our broader expertise in decarbonisation to help the city of Manchester to reach its impressive zero carbon ambitions.

“Beyond service delivery, the partnership with Manchester City Council extends to supporting local priorities such as job creation, social welfare, and innovation. We are thoroughly committed to continuing to undertake social value activities across the region to help improve prosperity in the area; including employment opportunities and community fundraising.”

This contract award follows the recent three-year extension with Manchester City Council Housing which will see Equans providing ongoing maintenance and repairs to 12,000 homes and carry out refurbishment and adaptations on behalf of the council until 2027.
