IPM Facilities has been awarded and already begun a three-year contract to deliver cleaning, grounds maintenance services and civil engineering works nationally for property management agent Edgerley Simpson Howe (ESH).
Hampshire-based IPM will carry out grounds maintenance, daily litter collection and site cleansing duties and undertake various civil works at retail parks and shopping centres as part of the deal.
As well as the horticultural element, part of the contract involves continual health and safety monitoring of the public areas and as part of the tender submission, IPM provided a fully bespoke client portal for ESH, enabling its facilities managers' real-time access to updates, ticket resolution, and H&S documentation.
Stuart Bromhead, senior facilities manager at ESH, said: "The footfall at our retail parks is enormous and the safety of the public is paramount. IPM Facilities have worked for us now for a number of years Our decision to award them the contract was not only based on their horticultural expertise but also based on their H&S records on similar portfolios they manage on our behalf".
