INTERSERVE AWARDED LONDON FIRE BRIGADE DEAL

INTERSERVE AWARDED LONDON FIRE BRIGADE DEAL

Interserve Group Limited has won a three-year facilities management contract worth £7.6m with the London Fire Brigade.

Interserve has delivered cleaning services for the London Fire Brigade for the last four years and employs 120 people as part of the contract. 

The scope of the contract includes cleaning the Brigade’s estate which consists of 94 fire stations and associated sites and includes a river boat used as a floating base for tackling fires. 

The new contract is for three years but may be extended by up to two years if successfully delivered. It also includes the delivery of grounds maintenance, pest control and security services.

The contract will be delivered by Interserve’s Communities and International business unit, which is led by Martin Burholt.

The London Fire Brigade, which is the second biggest fire brigade in the UK and has the largest number of firefighters in the country, has appraised Interserve for work delivered during COVID-19. The historic cleaning contract was altered as the response to the pandemic necessitated changes to the service. Interserve’s response included keeping the stations and colleagues as safe as possible by extending the range of services on offer to include regular deep cleans, frequently cleaning common touch points, and by increasing shifts from four days a week to a daily operation.

Claire Page, Supply Chain Manager in the Procurement Department at London Fire Brigade, said: “We are pleased to award this contract to Interserve. Keeping our stations clean in the current climate has never been so important as it gives our staff confidence that they can go about their daily duties.”
