Portsmouth-based Mountjoy has retained a £500,000-a-year building maintenance services contract with the Isle of Wight Council.
The contract, won after a competitive tender process, runs for five years with the option of a two-year extension. It covers responsive repairs, planned preventative maintenance and minor projects for all of the council’s buildings including County Hall, schools, offices, leisure centres, fire stations and care homes. The fresh contract will also see the provider investing in IT systems and creating an apprenticeship on the island.
Mountjoy has been delivering building maintenance services to the local authority since 2017, operating out of its Ryde offices with island-based staff.
Tanya Roxborough, Mountjoy’s maintenance director, said: “Over recent years the team on the island has consistently delivered a high-quality service as well as delivering some important projects such as the creation of the Covid-19 vaccination centre in Westridge.”
Christopher Ashman, the council’s director of regeneration, added: “The local Mountjoy team of island-based professional tradespersons have previously provided the council with the high-quality service it expects. This includes several recent pieces of essential project work that have positively supported the council's Covid response efforts on the Island.”
Mountjoy was formed in 1992 on the Isle of Wight and offers building maintenance and FM services across the south of England.
