Boden Group has been appointed by KBS Maritime as a strategic partner to provide FM and reactive maintenance services to Her Majesty's Naval Base (HMNB) Portsmouth.
The contract is part of the Future Maritime Support Programme.
Under the contract, Boden Group will deliver a suite of hard facilities services encompassing strategic estate management, planned and reactive FM, and additional works programmes to develop infrastructure at the base. The contract will be delivered using locally employed skilled staff with experience working on the existing contract, and approved local supply chain partners to provide specialist services.
Boden Group already has a presence delivering FM services in the defence sector in the south-west of England and the new contract sees it moving eastwards in its continuing ambition to establish services for local government, healthcare and education clients across the South. This move was enhanced in 2018 with the opening of an office in Amesbury, Wiltshire 2018. The company said the new contract strengthens its strategic objective.
Andrew Beagley, Boden Group's managing director, said: "We're excited to be… working with KBS Maritime to expand our FM services further east at such a prestigious site."
