G4S Integrated Services (G4S) has been awarded a contract to provide facilities management services (FM) to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Commercial Directorate from April 2014.
The three year contract, with the possibility of an extension for a further two years, is worth £4 million (excluding capital and project works) and will involve G4S providing a range of FM services, as well as Helpdesk and CAFM (Computer Aided Facilities Management).
The agreement covers three regional tax offices: Trinity Bridge House in Salford; Elgin House in Edinburgh and Cotton House in Glasgow, collectively occupied by around 2,500 people, with 3,000 visitors per month. It is anticipated that G4S will employ 33 members of staff across the three sites.
The contract will mobilise in phases, with the largest property, Trinity Bridge House, going live on 15th April 2014 and the other two likely to follow in January 2015.
G4S will be providing a range of core and managed services including cleaning, waste management, catering, reception, security and grounds maintenance as well as health and safety, fire safety, environmental management, energy and waste management through managed suppliers.
Stuart Mold, Director, G4S Government Services, said: “We are pleased that HMRC has selected us to provide our specialist FM services to these three key sites and we are looking forward to delivering a combination of operational excellence, cost efficiency and the highest levels of customer service.”
