Polyteck in Islington Council win

The construction and facilities management business has won a two-year building repair contract with Islington Council in London.

The contract worth approximately up to £500,000, commenced in February 2022 and sees Polyteck providing general building-related repairs across the council’s housing stock, including electrical, groundworks, plumbing, metal works, and specialist damp works.

Islington Council appointed Polyteck for its extensive experience of working with local authorities, and its commitment to supporting the council’s focus on delivering social, environmental and economic value from all its activities.

John (Yiannakis) Polycarpou, Chairman, Polyteck said: “This is a great strategic win for the business. 

“The nature of this type of contract requires fast responses and an increased level of customer service for the tenants, which we look forward to delivering.” 

Polyteck provides a range of planned and reactive maintenance services to domestic property and commercial buildings in the local authority and social housing sectors.

The business looks after more than 35,000 homes for registered providers and a number of commercial properties owned by local authorities. Previous clients have included Kent County Council and Slough Borough Council.

Facilities Management Survey 2022

Informa, the organisers of Facilities Show, together with FMJ magazine, have teamed up to launch a questionnaire which aims to offer a useful snapshot of where the facilities management sector is now, and an outlook on the future.

For instance, are you asking workers to begin to return to the office with a hybrid home/office work schedule? Are you revising your premises to enable more flexible ways of working and as such have your workplace strategies, including sustainability, wellbeing and engagement had to be radically rethought?

Your anonymised answers will contribute to a report on the biggest challenges and opportunities facing facilities managers; now, and anticipated in the next 12 months.
