Skanska continues to build on its long-term relationship with Somerset County Council following the award of a two-year deal to deliver hard FM services across 500 of the Council’s sites, ranging from council offices, libraries and children’s centres to schools and farms.
The contract which commenced on 1 April 2015, will see Skanska provide mechanical and electrical works, general building maintenance and repairs and minor projects.
Skanska will work closely with Somerset County Council and their retained management partner, Southwest One, working out of County Hall in Taunton.
The contract will build on Skanska’s presence in Somerset, where it has a team of 150 delivering roads improvements and maintenance work across three separate highways projects.
Katy Dowding, managing director of Skanska’s facilities services business, said:
“Our presence in Somerset spans almost two decades. Our people live and work here, which provides us with a unique insight to what residents need and the unique demands of the county.
“We are committed to working collaboratively with Somerset County Council and South West One, while using small and medium sized enterprises for at least 25 per cent of our work, helping to support the local economy.
“The contract will lead to the consolidation of hard FM services which will drive consistency and savings, a transition we have successfully delivered on other high-profile projects.”
The contract comes with a two year optional extension.
