Contract treble for Skanska

THE facilities services team at Skanska has secured nearly £2m worth of new work from Falkirk, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire councils.
The contractor will introduce a system that uses iPhones and paperless technology to give council teams access to real-time data and make them more efficient and productive. It will enable the local authorities to prioritise their planned preventative maintenance (PPM) and reactive works, identify critical assets and improve budget planning.
First contract will see the team maintain the heating and controls for 360 non-residential buildings in Falkirk over a three-year term. Worth nearly £1m, the contract will covering all reactive works and mechanical installations across the council’s estate.
Second win is to service boilers and associated equipment for Stirling Council. It is the second term of a three-year contract and covers work with an approximate value of £500,000.
Rounding off the hat-trick is a three-year contract to maintain mechanical installations at West Dunbartonshire Council’s non-housing properties. The contract strengthens an 11-year working relationship between contractor and council. The initial annual value is around £500,000.
Skanska has worked with all three local authorities before. The latest contracts were won under competitive tender.
