Doosan Babcock has awarded a contract to deliver all soft facilities services for their offices in Renfrew, Crawley, Gateshead, Grangemouth, Selby, South Normanton, Tipton and Bristol to international total facilities management provider OCS. Over the next three years, OCS will provide a range of services, including cleaning, security, post room, washroom hygiene, waste management, grounds maintenance, window cleaning, pest control, water coolers and vending, as well as reception services in Crawley and Renfrew, and food services in a redesigned catering facility at the Crawley site.
Working with OCS has enabled the client to rationalise the soft service provision, reducing the number of service suppliers from almost 50 to one single provider. “OCS has the experience of working in the industrial sector and the national and regional expertise, yet is a family business with strong core values,” commented Doosan Babcock’s Graeme Robertson, who led the procurement process.
Jane Sheard, OCS CEO Facilities Services said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed by Doosan Babcock to provide Soft FM services across their UK portfolio. Our primary objective throughout the tender process has been to provide a best in class solution to Doosan Babcock and we look forward to turning this into a reality, and to further developing new opportunities and our relationship with the client.”
Doosan Babcock is the specialist provider of engineering, aftermarket, and upgrade services to the energy sector.
