Carillion wins multi-million prison construction contract
Construction firm Carillion has won two contracts to provide facilities management services to 50 prisons across the UK.
The company believes that the two contracts, which will run for five years, could produce revenue of £200m over that period. The amount could increase if the company secures subsequent one-year extensions.
As part of the contract, Carillion will provide a range of services, including mechanical and electrical engineering maintenance, building fabric maintenance, energy and environmental services, waste management, escort services for contractors, cleaning services and minor building works and will commence on June 1, 2015.
Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said, “We are delighted to have been selected for these services contracts. I believe this reflects our ability to provide fully integrated service solutions that are tailored to the needs of our customers, combined with a strong focus on quality and value for money.
“We look forward to working closely with the Ministry of Justice to support its objectives of providing more efficient, high-quality services in public prisons.”
