Carillion has been selected by Centrica as preferred partner to deliver facilities management and project services for an initial period of five years, which can be extended to seven years. The contract has an estimated value to Carillion of some £90 million over five years with service delivery scheduled to start in December 2016. Carillion has worked in close partnership with Centrica for over a decade as managing agent, helping to deliver significant value to Centrica's British Gas business. The new contract builds on this successful relationship with an extension of scope to a Total Facilities Management service. Under the new contract Carillion will provide a wide range of hard and soft facilities management services, including asset surveys and planning, planned and reactive maintenance, cleaning, security and catering for Centrica's 115 locations in the UK and Republic of Ireland, together with the delivery of certain construction projects for Centrica. Carillion chief executive, Richard Howson, said: "We have worked closely with Centrica since 2005 and built a strong partnership. We are delighted to be extending this relationship, which is based on a one-team approach in which Carillion and Centrica work together to deliver award-winning standards of facilities management and customer service across all Centrica and British Gas sites."
