IPM Facilities has landed a three-year contract to deliver cleaning, grounds maintenance services and civils works nationally for property management agents – Edgerley Simpson Howe (ESH).
IPM will carry out grounds maintenance, daily litter collection and site cleansing duties and undertake various civils work as part of the contract.
Mark Noakes, Managing Director at IPM Facilities said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and already work nationally for Edgerley Simpson Howe on their other national portfolios. They specialise in edge and out of town retail and leisure parks and as a growing market for our client, we have kept pace with the demands these parks place on both them and us.
“We look forward to partnering with ESH on another of their growing national portfolios and this contract strengthens our presence in South Wales, the Midlands and the North and further consolidates IPM Facilities’ place as a progressive, forward thinking, national grounds maintenance and property management company.”
As well as the horticultural element of the contract, part of the agreement involves continual H&S monitoring of the public areas and as part of the tender submission, IPM provided a fully bespoke client portal for ESH, enabling its FMs real-time access to updates, ticket resolution, and H&S documentation.
Stuart Bromhead, Senior Facilities Manager at ESH commented: “The ‘footfall’ on our retail parks is enormous and the safety of the public is paramount. IPM Facilities have worked for us now for a number of years and their attention to detail is second to none. Our decision to award them the contract was not only based on their horticultural expertise but also based on their H&S records on similar portfolios they manage on our behalf.”
