Vinci Facilities has won a five-year contract with the Welsh government's department of economy and infrastructure to provide total facilities management and affiliated services across its property portfolio.
The £38 million contract was secured via the National Procurement Service for Wales. Under the contract, Vinci Facilities will deliver FM solutions to a diverse range of around 1,200 buildings and facilities throughout Wales, with a focus on using CAFM and data management to support the correct allocation of resources throughout the contract.
About 100 people are transferring to Vinci Facilities, which will create strategically located teams across Wales. Vinci said that there would be apprenticeship opportunities and business opportunities for Wales-based SMEs as part of the supply chain.
Managing director Tony Raikes said: "This builds on our track record with the Welsh government and confirms our ability to deliver consistent services right across Wales. It is exciting because with so many different services and such a variety of facilities the contract pushes the boundaries of FM, something that our team really appreciates and which was recognised during the tender process."
