Imtech Inviron has secured two NHS contracts with a combined value of at least £18 million to maintain 75 properties across Hertfordshire.
The technically-led FM provider will take on responsibility for a variety of estates services including mechanical and electrical maintenance, energy-focused asset management, plus fabric and grounds maintenance for the Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT).
HPFT delivers specialised expert support for mental health and learning disabilities inpatient care and treatment in the community for all ages while the HCT provides a wide range of community health services across Hertfordshire for every stage of patients’ lives.
The contracts begin on 1st April and the group will self-deliver a high proportion of the awarded services, underpinned by its leading technology MI platform Aurora. Its provision of accurate and real-time and predictive information will guarantee that both the trusts’ and Inviron’s front line teams can optimise the estates’ performance and prevent any loss of critical facilities.
Noel Clancy, Imtech Inviron’s managing director, said: “Healthcare is a key primary sector for Inviron and our wider group… We believe there is an opportunity to improve the service levels currently provided by the private sector in the NHS and we aim to give this client and their patients the service, care and attention they need and deserve. We look forward to building an exceptional relationship with both trusts over the coming years.”
Dean Raffles, head of operations – Estates & Facilities, Hertfordshire NHS Trust, added: “Throughout the tender process, Imtech Inviron demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the trusts’ objectives, building their service delivery model with a focus on quality, compliance, self-delivery and innovation. Working in partnership with Imtech Inviron, we look forward to working together and succeeding by delivering a better experience to our service users and trust sponsors.”
