Maltby Police & Fire Station in South Yorkshire

13 December 2018 | Herpreet Kaur Grewal

J Tomlinson has extended its emergency services portfolio after being awarded a five-year repairs and maintenance contract by South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue.


The company has worked with fire, ambulance and police services for more than 20 years – building new premises, providing mechanical and electrical improvements, undertaking refurbishment work and providing facilities management services.


The Nottingham-based firm, which recently opened a Yorkshire office in Wakefield, is currently providing maintenance and other services to a number of blue-light organisations, including South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS), North Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service.


Now South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue has awarded J Tomlinson a £225,000 contract to service 22 sites, including fire stations and other premises. The five-year contract, with an option of two additional years, began in November. It includes planned preventative maintenance and reactive work.


Martin Ardron, operational director at J Tomlinson, said: “As a company, J Tomlinson has extensive experience of supporting the emergency services with construction projects, repairs and maintenance and other work. It’s a specialist sector, requiring specific expertise."


South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue serves a population of about 1.29 million in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster areas.


J Tomlinson operates primarily across South Yorkshire, the East Midlands and the West Midlands, offering a range of integrated building services which include construction, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), facilities management, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance and regeneration.


The company works in many sectors, including blue light, commercial, industrial, health, heritage, supported living and residential.
