Rail deal renewal worth £75m to FM contractor

Network Rail has renewed its integrated facilities management (FM) contract with Mitie for another five years.

The contract, Mitie’s biggest re-bid for 2014, is worth £15m a year, or £75m over the full term.

Mitie will work at more than 100 Network Rail buildings across Britain, predominately in the corporate office estate, including the main campus at The Quadrant:MK in Milton Keynes.

Mitie will provide fabric and engineering maintenance, energy management, security, cleaning, mailroom & couriers, helpdesk, waste and pest services.

Network Rail director of workplace management Nigel Bunclark said: "After a competitive procurement process we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Mitie under the new contract.  It is an opportunity to work together to advance our strategy of providing great workplaces that are value-for-money, fit-for-purpose and sustainable.”

He added: "Mitie understands our vision to give our people efficient, effective and engaging workplaces."

Last month Mitie picked up a new contract with the Home Office to manage and maintain two immigration removal centres, valued at £180m over eight years, which has a potential further three year extension that would take the total value to £250m.
