The UK's Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has awarded a consortium comprising Amey, a Ferrovial Services
subsidiary, and UK company Carillion three contracts to maintain 105 military infrastructures
for a combined minimum value of 955 million pounds (around 1.2 billion euro) and that could be worth up to 2.8 billion pounds (around 3.5 billion euro)
in total, including additional services and possible extensions. The contracts are for five years, with the possibility of five-year extensions
The joint venture between Amey and Carillion
(50:50) will be responsible for maintaining the facilities and for the construction of new buildings
in military complexes in three regions, Central, South East and South West, with contracts estimated by MoD to be worth 432 million pounds, 258 million and 265 million, respectively, over the initial five year contract period. The consortium will implement management systems to improve energy efficiency in all of those buildings, and will provide cleaning and catering services
along with maintenance in two facilities in the South West region.
These three contracts are part of the Ministry of Defence's Next Generation Estates Contracts programme to improve its infrastructure. Under this programme, Amey and Carillion were recently awarded the contract
to maintain and upgrade 49,000 military homes in the UK and 30 Ministry of Defence facilities in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with a minimum combined value of 775 million pounds (around 945 million euro).
In line with their commitment to develop the communities where they operate, Amey and Carillion will work closely with local suppliers and with the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, which helps former military personnel find job
s and supports the provision of reservists.
