It is tasked with supporting the UK's Armed Forces through the provision of onshore repair, maintenance, overhaul, upgrade and managed services in the defence electronic components and general engineering field.
This is the first time DECA has awarded a TFM contract for the Sealand site, which reflects the experience and track record of Emcor UK in providing all aspects of facilities management services in highly secure government, defence, pharmaceutical and high-tech manufacturing sectors.
Emcor UK will be responsible for services provision including mechanical and electrical maintenance, projects, waste and laundry services and cleaning across the 43 buildings that make up the site.
There will also be the requirement to accommodate complex, high-tech and secure elements of the site, which include laboratory-cleaning rooms with humidity and temperature control.
The company already has contracts in the pharmaceutical, aerospace and utilities sectors.
