Mitie, the facilities management company, has been awarded a major five-year contract with Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Limited (CTIL), a joint venture between Vodafone UK and O2 (Telefonica), to manage the network sites for both companies, and consolidate their sites to create a single grid. The contract will see Mitie deliver FM maintenance services to the network, covering the entire UK.
Mitie was awarded the contract due to its high standards of delivery, its seamless integration of technology within client systems, and its adoptive approach to innovation.
Mitie will be recruiting for over 150 new positions while mobilising the contract and these will be posted on the Mitie careers page.
Peter Mosley, Managing Director of Mitie’s Technical Facilities Management business, said: “This is a fantastic contract award for Mitie, and recognition of the industry leading capability and scope of our services.
“We have demonstrated our expertise in managing critical sites, and will now be responsible for maintaining the network coverage for two of the largest mobile phone operators in the UK.”
Malcolm Collins, Managing Director of CTIL, said: “CTIL are delighted to award the maintenance contract of its real estate to Mitie, and partnering with such a renowned Facilities Management organisation will assist us in our drive towards becoming the industry leading telecommunications infrastructure company in the UK. Mitie demonstrated real capability and quality throughout the tendering process and we look forward to working with them and our shareholders, Telefonica and Vodafone UK, in driving continual improvements to our passive network infrastructure.”
