VINCI Facilities and DIO win ICW award

VINCI Facilities Defence and DIO Regional Delivery South East teams have won the Public/Private Collaborative Working Award at the Institute of Collaborative Working (ICW) Awards, held at the House of Lords on 22 November.

The Award citation stated: “The judges were impressed how VINCI Facilities has used the principals of Collaboration as a key principle in the innovative contract, promoting mutual trust and support for the benefit of the team of over 1,000 delivering the works to 59 Establishments across the region. This has led to improved benefits, productivity, efficiency, customer satisfaction, social value, energy efficiency flexibility, and added value, continuous improvement, innovation, and team engagement. 
“The key principle of this innovative contract is its mutual trust & support for mutual benefit, while continuous improvement is the driving force.”
The contract, one of the new innovative Future Defence Infrastructure Services (FDIS) contracts was mobilised in April 2022 by VINCI Facilities to provide hard FM Services to the MoD across the prestigious South East region, including London.

Winning this award so soon after the contract commenced reflects how hard both the VINCI Facilities Defence and DIO teams have worked to form a successful collaborative working relationship.

Earlier this year the VINCI Facilities Defence team also attained the ISO 44001 accreditation for Collaborative Working.

Andy Honnor, Head of DIO Regional Delivery South East said: “Winning this award reflects on the strong drive to collaborate with VINCI Facilities to deliver the best we can for Defence. However, that drive does not just sit with the individuals that work with each other day to day. It reflects the whole teams who enable, support, and empower our collaboration. Working collaboratively is a mindset and culture that we all support and strive to improve every day.” 

Grant Cristall, VINCI Facilities Defence Director said: “This award recognises the very strong collaborative working ethos we established from the mobilisation phase of the Contract through into service delivery.

“The most rewarding aspect is how the collaboration initiatives are embedded into the way we do business and how we work together as part of day-to-day operations. Continually supporting each other and improving to bring better outcomes for our stakeholders and providing a better lived experience for our military personnel.”

The ICW, a not-for-profit organisation, was established in 1990 by the UK Government and Industry to help organisations, large and small, in both public and private sectors build and develop more effective business relationships, based on collaborative working good practice.
