Kier Workplace Services has been awarded a three-year total facilities management (TFM) contract, worth £8 million to provide a national FM solution to British Red Cross, one of the country’s best-known charities.

The contract marks the first time the British Red Cross has appointed one provider to deliver FM across its 620 shops, offices, storage facilities and other buildings, which cover the length and breadth of the UK, from Orkney to the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland.

Services to be delivered by Kier include mechanical, electrical and fabric maintenance, reactive work, compliance testing, fire alarms and security system maintenance, cleaning, waste services including clinical waste and fire and water risk assessments.

The agreement will see Kier using computer aided facilities management (CAFM) technology and working closely with British Red Cross to streamline processes and introduce greater transparency in reporting, which will identify opportunities for improvements and lead to savings.

Kier will also be implementing a range of social impact measures, such as ethical procurement and volunteering initiatives, to support the charity in meeting its strategic objectives.

Steve Davies, Managing Director of Kier Workplace Services said: “We are very much looking forward to helping the British Red Cross shape and deliver a reliable, resilient FM solution that supports its vision to make a difference to the lives of people facing crisis across the globe.”

Carol O’Neill, Director of Shared Service Centre, British Red Cross, commented: “I am delighted to be commencing this new partnership with Kier Workplace Services. The British Red Cross has a diverse UK wide property portfolio. Moving to a single source national supplier under Kier reduces the complexity of our facilities management delivery models, improves transparency of service delivery, supports compliance and helps us drive down our costs.”

 The contract goes live in February 2018.
