Vinci Facilities has been awarded a four-year facilities management contract by the Department for Education (DfE).
The contract will be administered by LocatED, the government-owned property company responsible for buying and developing sites in England for the DfE free schools programme.
The Vinci Facilities team will deliver security, repairs and maintenance and compliance services to DfE-owned sites that have been acquired for free schools during the holding period prior to development starting and schools opening.
Vinci won a competitive tender through the Crown Commercial Services framework and will mobilise by mid-2019.
Vinci Facilities aims to "maximise its digital systems and make efficiencies during the mobilisation phase and then going live will implement its integrated supply chain delivery model with a dedicated management team".
