Following Carillion’s announcement on the 31 March 2014 that it had been selected as the preferred bidder by Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust for a contract to provide facilities management (FM) and estate transformation services, Carillion has today (19 June), revealed that the contract has now been officially signed.
Commencing on the 1 July 2014, Carillion will be responsible for providing FM and estate transformation services to the Trust’s three main sites, namely Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham City Hospital and Ropewalk House.
The contract is expected to be worth circa £200 million over an initial five-year contract period, which is extendable by a further three years subject to satisfactory performance.
In addition, Carillion has also been selected as a partner by the Highways Agency, together with Balfour Beatty, Costain, and a BAM Nuttall/Morgan Sindall Joint venture, to transform 17 miles of the M60 and M62 into a ‘smart motorway’.
Carillion is one of the Highways Agency’s four delivery partners on the Agency’s National Major Projects Framework and this latest award follows the successful delivery by Carillion of four previous phases of the smart motorway programme on the M6 in the West Midlands. Work on the scheme is scheduled to start in July and be completed by Autumn 2017.
Commenting on the two contract wins, Carillion chief executive, Richard Howson, said:
“These contracts continue our strong work winning performance in 2014 and as the largest trainer of apprentices in our industry, with long-term commitments to employing local people and to using local suppliers, they will provide further opportunities to create lasting benefits for the communities in which we work.”
