ISS UK’s landscaping division has landed the largest grounds maintenance deal to date in the UK, following its award of the Central, South West and South East Regional Prime, Next Generation Estates Contracts.
The deal will see the landscaping division of ISS UK continue its long-term partnership with Prime Contractor CarillionAmey, to deliver additional improvements to the quality and efficiencies of the Defence Estate across the UK.
ISS UK will deliver grounds, sports field; airfield; hard surface; hedge; and tree maintenance; along with snow and ice clearance to more than 250 key sites including Sandhurst, Horse Guards, Britannia Naval College, RAF Lyneham and Catterick Garrison.
Daniel Easthope, managing director, CarillionAmey, said:
“I am delighted that the landscaping division of ISS UK will be joining us in this new venture. Together, we intend to provide effective grounds maintenance on all UK Defence sites, striving to deliver service excellence for our client, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and our customers in the Armed Forces.”
Phil Jones, managing director of the landscaping division of ISS UK, said:
“The award of these contracts is a major landmark for both ISS and the grounds maintenance industry as a whole. They are also an opportunity for us to further demonstrate our commitment to the Armed Forces community. The landscaping division of ISS UK is the founder member of the Garden Support Team for Gardening Leave, a charity which helps veterans with mental health issues on the road back to health and civilian life by providing horticultural therapy within walled gardens. Our main focus will be to ensure that we continue to deliver the right culture of continuous improvement, efficiencies, and value for money to CarillionAmey and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO).”
Together with the existing Housing Prime and Regional Prime Scotland contracts, ISS UK is now responsible for delivering grounds maintenance on five Next Generation Estates Contracts.
