Integrated building and maintenance services provider J Tomlinson has been awarded a three-year full FM contract by East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS).
The contract, which includes a possible two-year extension, is worth about £1.2 million a year. It comprises management of planned and reactive works and grounds maintenance to EMAS buildings – ambulance stations, training centres, air ambulance units, patient reception centres and standby locations across Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Contract mobilisation at EMAS took place during the first Covid-19 national lockdown. The comprehensive FM package includes servicing, repairs and planned improvement works spanning building maintenance and civil engineering, firefighting equipment and systems, automatic doors, drainage, ventilation, heating, critical power, power systems, lifts, water service, security lock code changes, fuel storage, pest control, and grounds and maintenance.
The partnership further cements Nottingham-based J Tomlinson’s position as one of the UK’s top emergency service hard FM providers. The company works for 10 blue-light clients, including South Central Ambulance Service, West Midlands Ambulance Service, South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, Humberside Fire and Rescue, North Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Police and Humberside Police.
Steve Kirkland, managing director of repairs, maintenance and FM at J Tomlinson, said: “As a specialist provider of FM services to the blue-light sector, we are well versed in the challenges and sensitivities of working in this environment – particularly in light of the current global pandemic, which has significantly increased demands on urgent and emergency care across the UK.”
