Interserve will start working with Lewisham Council this month, delivering building maintenance and management services. The contract will be supporting 158 buildings throughout the borough in southeast London, including a mix of non-residential sites such as corporate buildings, offices, depots, libraries and community centres used by the 250,000 residents. The contract has the potential to extend until 2018.
The contract was procured through the Buying Solutions Facilities Management Framework.
Interserve will provide a range of services including management and administration, health and safety, risk and business-continuity management, environmental management, helpdesk and computer-aided facilities management, and building maintenance services.
Keith Dorling, Interserve managing director for home affairs and local authorities, said: "This important project adds to Interserve's already extensive local authority experience and enables us to bring best practice in support services to Lewisham Council. The council was looking for a partner who could offer best value whilst retaining a flexible attitude to delivering services cost effectively, as local government's requirements change to meet the current political and budgetary challenges."
