Grosvenor Property UK, one of the UK’s largest and oldest privately owned property companies is launching a c£260 million re-procurement of its repairs, maintenance, and services work across its central London portfolio ahead of the end of an existing 10-year supplier framework.
For the last 340 years, Grosvenor has developed and managed a significant portfolio of commercial and residential property in Mayfair and Belgravia. This includes over 1,000 assets in London’s zone one, the majority of which are listed or lie in a conservation area. Today the business combines commercial success with the delivery of stretching environmental and social impact goals, working closely with its partners to support the long term success of central London and the many businesses, residents, workers and visitors who rely on it every day.
The re-procurement covers all of Grosvenor’s directly managed buildings in its portfolio for the following services for up to 10 years.
- Mechanical & Electrical, and Fabric
- Soft Services
- Lifts Maintenance
- Front of House
- Major Works
Ahead of a formal tender process, Grosvenor is seeking expressions of interest from partners who can demonstrate alignment both their expertise in these areas as well as their environmental and social impact commitments.
Combined, the value of all contracts available over a 10-year period are in the region of £26 million per annum. More information about the tender and how to submit an expression of interest by 30 June can be found here on Grosvenor’s website.
Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?
For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.
FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.
Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:
- The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
- How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
- Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
