Peterborough residents worried about the state of their streets now that Amey PLC has snapped up the PCC cleaning contract, might not be amused by the latest announcement given below. Clearly the resources will be drawn elsewhere. So we suggest dashing off an e-mail to the Amey Chief Executive Mel Ewell care of Press.firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01865 713240 with your thoughts.
Also consider that hundreds of fish have been found dead in the River Nene around the Stanground area. The PBROTRIB is still waiting after 2 weeks for the local Amey office to tell us which weedkiller they are currently spraying around the bases of our Hedgerows. We think it is called Matrix which is not supposed to be sprayed without first checking domestic pets and hedgehogs are safe, and not in the line of fire.
The Amey numptie with the spray back pack just looked straight ahead. If your cat or dog has been affected tell your vet its probably Matrix, they should have Chemical Safety sheets or try this link: www.ipco.ca/pdf/MATRIX-Herb-Solution-E-Dec29_2010.pdf It could well be that after the recent heavy rains the Matrix weedkiller, has now entered the river and water courses. A simple chemical test could prove it.
These contracts form the final part of the DIO’s Next Generation Estate Contracts programme to maintain and upgrade defence infrastructure, and takes the joint venture contract wins to five, including the two contracts awarded in May*. The contracts have a combined value of up to £4.5 billion and will see the Amey joint venture delivering services right across the UK.
The Amey joint venture has secured the Central**, South East and South West Regional Prime contracts estimated by MOD to be worth a minimum of £432.2 million, £258.1 million and £265 million respectively over the initial five year contract period.
The new contracts will provide a wide range of hard facilities and asset management services, together with the construction of new buildings across 105 key sites such as: RAF Cranwell, Catterick Garrison, Stafford, Sandhurst, Horse Guards, RNAS Yeovilton, Defence Equipment &Support (DE&S) Abbey Wood and RAF Lyneham. Building maintenance will be complemented with the introduction of management systems designed to improve the energy efficiency performance of the military estate.
In addition, the South West contract has been extended to include providing catering, cleaning and other soft facilities management services at DE&S Abbey Wood and the UK Hydrographic Office.
Mel Ewell, Amey’s Chief Executive, said: “Securing the Regional Prime contracts across the whole of UK is great news for the business and testament to the strength of the partnership with Carillion. This recent win allows us to add value by expanding the service, as well as sharing best practice and driving efficient ways of working across the defence estate.”
The Joint Venture will use these new contracts to create further opportunities to demonstrate their commitment to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, which helps ex-service personnel find employment and supports the provision of Reservists.
Across the Prime contracts, Amey and Carillion have also introduced a delivery model that will support the UK Government’s objective of encouraging the use of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
*In May Amey and Carillion was awarded the Scotland and Northern Ireland Regional Prime contract and re-secured the National Prime Housing contract potentially worth up to £1.7 billion in total.
**The enlarged Central contract replaces the current Central Prime contract by encompassing Central and Northern England, Wales and the existing Prime Eastern contract.
