Mitie has won a five-year integrated facilities management (IFM) contract valued at £56 million with Magnox Ltd, which manages one of the largest nuclear reactor decommissioning programmes in Europe.
The new contract will see Mitie deliver a fully integrated FM service at 14 sites – 12 nuclear sites, a hydroelectric plant and a technical office – based across the UK. Mitie will provide engineering maintenance, cleaning, waste management, helpdesk, front of house, mailroom management and landscaping services.
Magnox Ltd is a subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, responsible for decommissioning the 12 nuclear sites and safely managing the waste generated from producing over 1,000TWh of nuclear power during their 60 years of operations, and safely managing the waste generated during nuclear research and electricity generation stretching back nearly 75 years. Mitie will focus on delivering repair and maintenance services such as water treatment and fire alarm inspections. This is vital to keeping buildings safe and all equipment operating efficiently, ensuring that Magnox Ltd employees can carry out their decommissioning tasks safely.
The contract builds on Mitie’s experience supporting the UK nuclear industry, working with customers including Sellafield Limited, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Low Level Waste Repository Limited.
Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie, said: “We’re honoured to have been selected by Magnox Ltd for this contract and to bring our experience of large-scale integrated facilities management services to their 14 sites. As a trusted FM partner for the UK’s national nuclear infrastructure, we’re proud to continue supporting the sector by assisting Magnox Ltd as it undertakes this critical decommissioning programme.”
Caron Weaver, Magnox Ltd Engineering and Asset Management Director, added: “We are delighted to be working with Mitie as part of our mission to fully decommission the Magnox sites across the UK. We are confident this contract represents excellent value for money and are looking forward to Mitie bringing innovation and driving efficiency in the delivery of these vital FM services.”
The contract comes with the option to extend for a further five years.
FMJ has teamed up with Zip Water, creator of award-winning sustainable drinking water systems, to discuss the ways in which FMs can safeguard the provision of essential amenities within the workplace as we emerge into a new era of touch-free, socially distanced offices.
During the event, which will feature a panel of leading FMs and an FM services provider, we will discuss how FM professionals, office managers and HR managers can balance the need to manage shared spaces, such as staff kitchens, while maintaining a safe environment and meeting energy and waste reduction targets. This will include a look at some of the latest touch-free technologies; including apps to manage workflow and hands-free automation (e.g. automatic doors, taps etc).
Join us on Wednesday 25th November at 11:00am for an event which will address the ways FMs can meet their commitment to ensure the wellbeing of people as an integral part of their sustainability remit.
