Mitie has expanded its landscaping contract with Whitbread Plc, following a competitive tender process. The three-year contract is an extension of services already provided by Mitie, to include additional sites in the Midlands, Wales and the South; almost doubling the number of sites on the contract.
Whitbread is the UK's largest hospitality company, owning Premier Inn, Costa Coffee and Beefeater. Mitie will deliver grounds maintenance to 440 Premier Inn sites and their associated restaurants. The landscaping team will manage grass cutting, plant bedding and weed control services as well as tree, hedge and shrub maintenance.
Mitie will be investing in new technology as part of the contract, having developed a web portal called Live Landscapes that will provide live data and management information across the estate. This will allow Whitbread to monitor performance by site as well as download reports containing issues, trends and other key data.
Tim Howell, Managing Director of Mitie’s Landscapes, said:
“We are delighted to have expanded our relationship with Whitbread to maintain the grounds of Premier Inn sites across the UK. We have developed an excellent working relationship over the past four years and look forward to enhancing our service with better insight using our market-leading technology.”
