Merseyside Police has appointed BAM FM – the facilities management business of BAM UK and Ireland – to provide hard facilities management services at its state-of-the-art headquarters in Liverpool, and a further 78 buildings in and around Merseyside.
Under the terms of two separate three-year contracts (extendable by an additional two years) BAM FM will deliver 24/7 electrical and mechanical maintenance services including proactive and reactive projects.
The scope for both contracts will also extend to planned preventative maintenance and small project refurbishments and alterations. FM services provided will also include helpdesk, computer-aided facility management (CAFM) and administrative services.
Both contracts commenced in early April.
Commenting on the agreement, BAM FM Operations Director - North, Rob Smith, said: “BAM’s experience in the law and order sector, and other Blue Light services, makes us a good fit for a major client like Merseyside Police.
“The strong strategic fit will deliver for them not only our exceptional standards of service and responsiveness, but top class sustainability tools, energy advice and social value measures that will enhance and support their ability to go about such vital work for the public.”
Elsewhere in the North of England BAM FM delivers services for Cheshire Police and under a PFI agreement for Derby Police.
Another Blue Light client is West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, while it also works for Phoenix House, an MOD client.
Rob Smith added, “Our appointment is further evidence that BAM’s facilities management credentials – like those of its construction and property businesses - are being recognised everywhere as best in class.”
