Q3 lifts off with new IFM deal

Boutique FM company, Q3 Services, has been awarded a first-generation, integrated FM contract with Satellite Applications Catapult, one of a network of nine Catapult technology and innovation centres established by Innovate UK to deliver impact across the UK economy.

The three-year contract mobilised in April, across all Satellite Applications Catapult locations in the UK and will be coordinated through a centralised helpdesk and Facilio Connected CAFM software platform.

Commenting on the contract award, Donna Johnston, Head of Estates and Facilities Management for Satellite Applications Catapult, said: “Our decision to appoint Q3 Services followed a robust market exercise. We are delighted that Q3 have a close cultural alignment and a desire to embrace a partnership approach to service delivery which matches our own aspirations. Their ability to deploy technology and innovation as an integral part of their service will improve our service delivery internally and externally enormously.”

Mark Hazelwood, Q3 Service’s Managing Director IFM added: “It’s exciting to be working with Satellite Applications Catapult, operating as it does at the cutting edge of the space industry. Q3 continues to break new ground with its Integrated FM model, by listening and understanding our client needs and creating a bespoke solution they know will work for them.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
