It’s a hat trick for Facilities Services

Press release 05/02/2013 08:00 CET

The Skanska team based in Scotland has secured nearly £2 million of new work. The contracts cover three local authorities: Falkirk, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire.

Skanska will introduce a bespoke system that uses iPhones and paperless technology to give council teams access to real-time data and, as a result, become more efficient and productive. This improved insight will enable them to prioritise their planned preventative maintenance (PPM) and reactive works, identify critical assets, improve budget planning and review reports on health and safety and customer satisfaction.

The first contract will see the team maintain the heating and controls for over 360 buildings (excluding residential) for Falkirk Council over a three-year term. Worth nearly £1 million, this PPM contract will provide the team’s expertise and skills as a ‘one-stop shop’, covering all reactive works and mechanical installations across the council’s estate.

The second contract win secured the boiler servicing and associated equipment for Stirling Council. This is the second term of a three-year contract and covers PPM with an approximate value of £500,000. In addition to servicing and maintaining all gas and oil-fired heating systems, the team will provide a 24-hour call-out service.

Last but not least, Skanska has secured a three-year contract for the maintenance of mechanical installations at West Dunbartonshire Council’s properties (excluding residential). The contract strengthens the 11-year working relationship between Skanska and the council. The initial annual PPM contract has an approximate value of £500,000.

Skanska’s ‘first time fix’ policy, delivering a 99% service level success rate, supports business continuity for local authority estates. By minimising asset failure and maximising asset life, significant cost savings are gained by these local authorities. In addition, Skanska’s comprehensive knowledge of green techniques will reduce the local authorities’ carbon footprints and therefore energy costs, helping them meet their green goals.

Skanska has worked with all three local authorities before. The contracts were won under competitive tender, confirming the strong working relationships with Skanska’s delivery teams and the invaluable knowledge and experience they have accumulated.
