Interserve Press Office | Nov 14, 2011
Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has awarded Interserve, the international support services and construction group, new contracts in Cyprus, the Falkland Islands, Ascension Island and Gibraltar.
The combined contracts are worth an estimated £60 million a year for five years with the possibility of extensions for a further two, creating a potential total value of £420 million.
Interserve currently holds the contracts for Cyprus, the Falkland Islands and Ascension Island. Its record in delivering support services here has contributed to the award of the new contracts, with expanded scope at Ascension Island, and to the addition of Gibraltar. The work will run until at least 2017 in the islands and until 2018 in Gibraltar, following the expiry of the current contracts in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
By providing a single, strategic, UK-based management structure and a bundled package of services for all the territories, Interserve will create efficiencies and deliver more for less, ensuring an enhanced service together with significant cost savings to DIO.
The contracts will cover mechanical, electrical and building-related services. On Ascension Island Interserve will also provide ‘soft’ facilities management services including accounting, logistics, catering, cleaning, pest control, aircraft handling, flight planning and security services. For Gibraltar additional specialist work is required for marine and harbour work and nuclear services.
Adrian Ringrose, Chief Executive of Interserve, commented, “Our strong track record and in-depth understanding of the MoD’s particular requirements will enable us to give these bases the kind of specialist support they need in order to carry out their activities in sometimes very difficult circumstances.
“Our ability to respond to emergencies and unexpected changes, including major adjustments to the Authority’s requirements, is fundamental to Interserve’s service delivery – we have embedded responsive change management procedures in our delivery model for each territory.”
