Arm of Co-op Live developer handed £7m contract to manage almost 80 buildings
A division of the company constructing the £365m Co-op Live arena in Manchester has been awarded a £7m contract to look after almost 80 buildings in and around Merseyside.
BAM FM, the facilities management business of BAM UK and Ireland, has been appointed by Merseyside Police to look after its headquarters in Liverpool and a further 78 buildings.
Under the terms of two separate three-year contracts, which are extendable by an additional two years, BAM FM will deliver 24/7 electrical and mechanical maintenance services including proactive and reactive projects.
The scope for both contracts will also extend to planned preventative maintenance and small project refurbishments and alterations. FM services provided will also include helpdesk, computer-aided facility management (CAFM) and administrative services.
BAM FM operations director - North, Rob Smith, said: "BAM’s experience in the law and order sector, and other Blue Light services, makes us a good fit for a major client like Merseyside Police.
"The strong strategic fit will deliver for them not only our exceptional standards of service and responsiveness, but top class sustainability tools, energy advice and social value measures that will enhance and support their ability to go about such vital work for the public."
Elsewhere in the North of England, BAM FM delivers services for Cheshire Police and under a PFI agreement for Derby Police.
Mr Smith added: "Our appointment is further evidence that BAM’s facilities management credentials – like those of its construction and property businesses - are being recognised everywhere as best in class."
