VINCI Facilities has been awarded a three-year total facilities management contract with Cadw, the Welsh Government’s historic monument service, across its entire estate throughout Wales.
The work was secured via the Crown Commercial Services framework and is mobilising right now.
Cadw is part of the Welsh Governments Culture, Sport and Tourism Department – with a mission to care for Wales’ historic environment for the benefit of people today and in the future. Cadw is the Welsh word for protect and VINCI Facilities will be working across Wales to provide FM services to 130 monuments in State care.
The team from VINCI Facilities will be cleaning all of the modern visitor centres across the estate but a critical part of the service will be the landscaping and external works. Many of the monuments have extensive grounds and VINCI Facilities will be managing tree surveys, grounds maintenance, all hard and soft landscaping, including waterways and bridges and all mechanical and electrical maintenance.
All of the works will be planned and reactive with the team providing a 24-hour call out service backed by its helpdesk based in Bridgend, South Wales.
Further work will include M&E, lift installations and new IT infrastructure, as well as biodiversity, energy management, pest control, security and waste removal.
This new contract award adds to VINCI Facilities portfolio of Welsh Government contracts including providing a total FM solution to the Economy and Infrastructure department and the Office for National Statistics, based in Newport.
Tony Raikes, Managing Director of VINCI Facilities said: “Over the years we have built up a partnership with Welsh Government and this new piece of work confirms that. We have an advantage in that we know Wales and our teams responded quickly to what Cadw needed. It truly is a total FM service and as part of the mobilisation process one key task is a detailed asset survey and update of the asset register. It is a great challenge and we are very proud to be given the responsibility. The contract is very different in many ways – it is about far more than managing assets. It is about being part of the custodianship of the historical environment and welsh heritage.”
