Mitie has secured a five-year contract extension, worth £17 million with London Gatwick, which includes a new agreement to maintain electrical services.
The facilities management and professional services company has been working with Gatwick for the last seven years and will now maintain the relationship until at least late 2023.
Gatwick, which is the UK’s second largest airport, and handles 46 million passengers a year, will benefit from Mitie’s expertise in large-scale FM services including building and plumbing services, cleaning and looking after flooring, fire doors and drainage.
The contract, to provide critical support services, including electrical engineering, will cover the North and South terminals and property buildings.
Mitie, which has extensive expertise in the airport sector, won the award by demonstrating it could deliver cost-effective and quality services that support high levels of customer service.
Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Engineering and IFM, Mitie, said: “We have spent the past seven years supporting Gatwick Airport and the many passengers who pass through its terminals, so we are delighted to continue this relationship for another five years and to expand our role to include electrical services.
“We know airports are challenging environments in which to deliver facilities management and over the years, Mitie has proved to Gatwick that we can deliver service excellence, which is both resilient and cost-effective. It is also paramount that this is all done with minimal disruption to its passengers.”
