Interserve has received a two-year contract extension with the Environment Agency valued at more than £11 million.
The international support services and construction group’s partnership with the Environment Agency first began in 2013 when it started providing a range of tailored facilities services including maintenance, cleaning and security to more than 100 locations across England.
Over the next two-years Interserve will look to further maximise efficiency across the Environment Agency’s estate, focusing on improving service delivery and achieving cost savings by introducing new innovations across the organisation.
Interserve will, for example, introduce a new suite of environmentally-friendly cleaning products that will help reduce the carbon footprint of the Environment Agency’s estates management operation.
Alongside the extended Environment Agency account, Interserve also has a long-term partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
Commenting on the contract extension, Brian Talbot, managing director at Interserve, said:
“We have built a great relationship with the Environment Agency over the past three years and have developed a strong understanding of the organisation and its requirements. This, coupled with our partnership with DEFRA, gives us a unique opportunity to identify significant combined operational efficiencies and deliver better value for both organisations.”
The Environment Agency is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by DEFRA, which works to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development.
