A Carillion-Amey joint venture has won two Next Generation Estate contracts worth up to £1.7Bn, part of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s (DIO) programme of maintenance and upgrades.

 

The partners re-secured the National Prime Housing contract (67% Carillion, 33% Amey), estimated by MoD to be worth £625M over an initial five year contract period, which could be extended by a further five years.

 

The joint venture will provide a range of hard facilities management services, including routine maintenance, occupancy management, furniture installation, energy efficiency services, statutory inspections and improvements for more than 49,000 military homes throughout the UK.

 

The joint venture has also won the Scotland and Northern Ireland Regional Prime contract (50% Carillion, 50% Amey) worth an estimated £150M over five years.

 

This will see the partners provide similar services as for England and Wales across 30 key sites including RAF Lossiemouth, RAF Leuchars, Kinloss Barracks, HMS Caledonia and Kentigern House in Scotland, and Aldergrove Airfield, Thiepval Barracks and Kinnegar Logistics Base in Northern Ireland, together with the provision of new buildings.

 

Hard facilities management services will include planned and reactive building fabric and mechanical and electrical engineering maintenance, as well as utility efficiency services.

 

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson, said: “We are delighted that our Joint Venture has been selected for these major engineering contracts. We look forward to building on the strong relationship we have developed with Defence Infrastructure Organisation.”

 

Amey chief executive Mel Ewell added: “Working collaboratively we not only provide essential improvements to the defence estate, but will support the DIO in their drive to reduce carbon emissions through the introduction of sustainable best practice and innovation.”
