Salisbury Group, the facilities management and maintenance company, has secured a contract with Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) in Buckinghamshire.
It involves provision of mechanical and electrical planned and reactive maintenance services to all council sites and facilities across the Vale.
The three-year deal marks Salisbury Group's entry into the local government sector. It will see the company apply its central government expertise and multi-site, mobile engineering capabilities to support AVDC in achieving its strategic goals. The council has the option to extend the contract by a further two years.
The two organisations are working closely together to mobilise the contract, and services are due to start on 1 April.
Ed Swales, CEO of Salisbury Group, said: "This is an important milestone for Salisbury Group as we enter the local government sector. This is the first step in a strategy to take the experience we have gained from working with central government and use it to bring value to another public sector environment. We are fortunate to have gained a client that has a clear vision for what it wants to deliver for its residents. We are committed to supporting AVDC by providing high-quality services at excellent value for the people of Aylesbury Vale."
Teresa Lane, assistant director of Aylesbury Vale District Council, added: "AVDC's property portfolio plays an important part in generating income. This contract is designed to help us achieve our ambitious vision and goals."
