Press Release

Interserve wins £11m Environment Agency contract extension

by Interserve Press Office | Sep 19, 2016

Environment Agency contract extensionInterserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a two-year account extension with the Environment Agency worth over £11 million. 

Interserve’s partnership with the Environment Agency began in 2013 when it started providing a range of facilities services including maintenance, cleaning and security across more than 100 locations. The focus has been, and will continue to be, on flexibility, with Interserve delivering tailored services to suit the different requirements at each site. 

Over the next two-years Interserve will look to further maximise efficiency across the Environment Agency’s estate, focusing on improving service delivery and achieving cost savings by introducing new innovations across the organisation. Interserve will, for example, introduce a new suite of environmentally-friendly cleaning products that will help reduce the carbon footprint of the Environment Agency’s estates management operation. Alongside the extended Environment Agency account, Interserve also has a long-term partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). 

Brian Talbot, managing director at Interserve, said: 

“We have built a great relationship with the Environment Agency over the past three years and have developed a strong understanding of the organisation and its requirements. This, coupled with our partnership with DEFRA, gives us a unique opportunity to identify significant combined operational efficiencies and deliver better value for both organisations.” 

David Scholey, deputy director of facilities management at the Environment Agency, said: 

“We’ve established strong relationships with Interserve over the past three years, and this extension allows us to continue to build upon what is already a highly professional facilities management service. The smooth running of our estate is critical to day-to-day operations – to have continuity of service for a further two years through our ongoing partnership with Interserve is great news for the Environment Agency.”

The Environment Agency is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by DEFRA, which works to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development. Established in 1996, it employs around 10,600 people and has more than 100 offices located across England.
