Servest scoops PPP FM award in South Africa

Servest has been named winner of the SAFMA (South African Facilities Management Association) Public Private Partnership Facilities Management Award of the Year. 

The accolade was presented to Servest for its ability to exceed expectations, deliver measurable benefits and demonstrate a positive impact through the provision of an integrated facilities management service for the South African government’s Department of Statistics.

More than 200 dedicated Servest employees offer a multifaceted FM solution to the 90,000 m2, purpose-built government facility in Pretoria, which has a five Star Green Building rating. Servest self-delivers every service, including cleaning, catering, security, interior landscaping and grounds maintenance, to the building that houses 2,500 staff.

Servest won the contract last year due to the Group’s impressive track record with similar PPP contracts in Botswana, and the ability to self-deliver every element of the offering. The public private partnership will run until 2041.

Speaking about the award, Graham Peel, managing director of Integrated Solutions, a division of Servest said:

“We are very proud to have been named recipients of this prestigious award and thank the SAFMA for recognising the positive contribution Servest as a business contributes to the advancement of FM in South Africa. We are fully committed to ensuring value and service levels are achieved by maximising operating synergies, through the deployment of multi-skilled, cross functional staff and through the implementation of technology to support the free flow of real time information.”

Rob Legge, Group CEo added:

“We are very excited about our work with the Department of Statistics, Servest believes that innovation is the key to the future of facilities management. This award is testament to how innovative thinking can positively impact an organisation’s operating style and workforce. We hope this accolade that celebrates our work with a high-profile government department will increase our global public sector footprint.”
