Construction and maintenance services provider, Mountjoy, has won a five-year contract with Horsham District Council to provide planned and reactive building maintenance services.
The contract, which is valued at up to £7 million, encompasses statutory and planned preventative maintenance to all electrical systems, heating systems, ventilation systems, water management, drainage, fire and security systems and lifts. Mountjoy will also be providing a comprehensive reactive maintenance service and carrying out external cleaning and maintenance of council buildings and some street furniture.
The services will operate across Horsham’s diverse portfolio which includes offices, the Capitol theatre, the Horsham Museum, operational depots, community facilities and temporary housing.
As part of the contract agreement, Mountjoy has committed to establishing a new maintenance team based in Horsham, deploying new vehicles and technology to reduce the service’s carbon footprint and supporting the local community with education and training opportunities.
Leader of Horsham District Council and Cabinet Member for Finance and Assets Councillor Ray Dawe commented: “I am extremely pleased that after a competitive and robust procurement process, Mountjoy has been appointed to provide planned and reactive building services for the Council.
“We look forward to working together to ensure that the Council’s estates and assets are maintained to a very high standard. In particular, we are keen to work closely to achieve efficient ways of working whilst protecting the environment to help reduce the Council’s carbon footprint.”
The contract will commence in October 2019, and comes with an option for a further two-year extension.
