Mitie has been awarded a five-year contract with Yorkshire Building Society following a competitive tender process. The contract is worth £14.5m and covers engineering, catering and security. This new contract will see Mitie deliver these services to 147 of Yorkshire Building Society’s sites, including office locations and branches.
Mitie’s engineering business will oversee the delivery of maintenance and repair services across Yorkshire Building Society’s entire estate. Mitie will focus on first time fix and lifecycle asset management by introducing its direct audits system, which will enable better visibility of asset condition and potential future spend.
As a leading financial services provider, security is paramount. Mitie’s security business will provide an enhanced level of service to all Yorkshire Building Society head office locations. Yorkshire Building Society will also benefit from Mitie’s expertise as the UK’s leading intelligence and tech-led security business which will increase resilience to its group wide security monitoring.
Gather & Gather, Mitie’s catering arm, will revolutionise the current catering offering with the introduction of two new concepts – ‘lighter on the pocket’ and ‘healthy options’. These ranges will reinvigorate onsite food for staff offering enjoyable healthy eating options which are also cost friendly. The Building Society will also benefit from the culinary expertise of The Gathered Table, which brings the best and brightest minds in food, technology and sustainability together to pioneer a radical new approach to workplace dining creating better-fed, happier and healthier people in the workplace.
Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Mitie Engineering, said:
“We are proud to be partnering with Yorkshire Building Society. Drawing on our extensive experience and expertise in engineering, security and catering, we look forward to introducing new technology and innovation to transform services for Yorkshire Building Society and its employees.”
