Property, residential, construction and services group Kier has been appointed by The Office Group (TOG), a provider of shared workspaces, to deliver technical services to 30 of its buildings in a two-year contract worth £1 million.
Launched in 2013, TOG offers its clients workspaces for rent, including flexible offices and meeting rooms as well as drop-in lounges and co-working spaces. It has more than 15,000 members working throughout its business in the UK and a growing property portfolio across central London.
The contract covers 28 sites in central London, one in Leeds, and another in Bristol. Work begins this month, with a further two sites being added to the contract in March.
Kier Workplace Services, the FM arm of Kier Group, will provide mechanical, electrical and life safety systems. Operating across multiple sites, TOG will benefit from Kier's experience in providing clients with bespoke delivery models to increase efficiencies and reduce operational disruption to its properties.
Steve Davies, managing director of Kier Workplace Services, said: "We will support TOG to continue to provide its members with the very best service, allowing them to focus on delivering their core business."
Tim Winterflood, asset manager, TOG, says: "From the outset, Kier understood the brief and provided us with a fully comprehensive solution which will help to facilitate the significant growth we expect to achieve in the coming years."
