The contract combines the demands of the National Museums of Scotland, the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration and Historic Scotland into a single collaborative contract to provide economies of scale.
The new contract commenced on 6th January 2014 and sees Carillion providing a range of engineering and soft services to over 180 sites throughout the country. With a value of £7 million the contract will run for a period of five years with the opportunity to extend for a further two.
Craig Butt, Customer Business Director at Carillion Services, said: “We are very pleased to be awarded this contract which not only allows us to retain two of our key clients in Scotland but also adds Historic Scotland and a further 140 sites to our portfolio.
“We believe that our existing customer relationships and our ability to provide flexible resource for optimal service delivery is key to our success, confirming our reputation as a leading support service provider”.
This most recent success follows Carillion announcement last year that it had secured a total facilities management contract with the Registers of Scotland, servicing its headquarter offices in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, further adding to its already substantial Scottish portfolio.
