MITIE, the FTSE 250 outsourcing and energy services company, has secured a contract to provide integrated facilities management (FM) for British Sky Broadcasting Group (Sky), the UK’s largest entertainment and home communications company.
The contract, with a total value in excess of £100m over a five-year period, will see MITIE deliver services across Sky’s estate in the UK and Ireland, commencing in January 2013. As well as its two main campuses in London and Scotland, MITIE will work at 12 regional offices, two data centres and dozens of POP sites (internet exchange points).
MITIE will have responsibility for delivering a range of services including fabric maintenance, engineering maintenance, energy management, catering, security services, cleaning, mail room & couriers, helpdesk, switchboard, shuttle buses, grounds maintenance and internal landscaping.
MITIE also recently completed a project to build an on-site wind turbine at Sky’s new broadcast facility, Sky Studios, in Osterley, West London. The most sustainable broadcast facility of its type in Europe, the turbine will provide over 133 MWh per annum of clean energy to the studios.
MITIE was awarded the contract based on its innovative ideas, self-delivery capabilities and cultural approach.
Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, Chief Executive of MITIE Group PLC, said: “We are delighted to be working with Sky and look forward to creating what will be a truly collaborative partnership.
“Sky is a dynamic company and MITIE will ensure the FM strategy brings the highest quality services, value and innovation to its business.”
