Feb. 17, 2016 — National Grid has awarded contracts to two facilities management service providers following a competitive tender process.
The chosen providers, 14Forty, a division of Compass Group UK and Ireland, and CBRE will work together overseeing soft and hard facilities management services for the entire National Grid estate.
In a new style of operating model, CBRE will provide hard services relating to the building, its systems, and critical engineering work, with 14Forty delivering soft services, including ground maintenance. In addition, 14Forty will have an integration role to ensure that the end user receives a seamless service as the two providers work together to provide services and solutions.
The contracts begin on April 1, 2016, for soft services and June 1, 2016, for hard services.
Carl Longworth, corporate property portfolio manager at National Grid said, “This new style of working will bring great benefits for us at National Grid, and those who work with us. I was extremely impressed with 14Forty and CBRE and what they proposed, especially given the complexity of National Grid sites.”
National Grid is one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the world, covering Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, and the UK.
