07 March 2013
Mitie, the strategic outsourcing company, has been awarded an FM contract with Nexus, the Passenger Transport Executive for Tyne and Wear in the north east of England.The contract consists of cleaning five bus interchanges, two office locations and several travel centres, including waste collection and consumable supplies.
The £1.6 million, three-year contract started in mid May 2010, with approximately 30 employees on the contract, overseen by a contract manager and three mobile supervisors.
Two innovations that have been introduced on the contract are MITIE Tracker, the time and attendance phone-based system for operatives to use, and a deep clean programme which will be completed every evening in addition to the normal machine maintenance programme; this ensures floors are cleaned to the required standards.Johan Venter, MITIE's Transport Cleaning MD is delighted that MITIE is working with Nexus:"This is a crucial contract for us to gain in further developing our transportcleaning portfolio.We have really worked hard to understand Nexus' requirements."
