Carillion has won contracts to provide facilities management services to 50 UK prisons.
The company believes that the two contracts, which will run for five years, could produce revenue of £200m over the period. The amount could increase if the company secures subsequent one-year extensions.
The contracts mean Carillion will provide a range of services, including mechanical and electrical engineering maintenance, building fabric maintenance, energy and environmental services, waste management, escort services for contractors, cleaning services and minor building works. The contracts start on 1 June 2015.
Commenting, Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said:
We are delighted to have been selected for these services contracts. I believe this reflects our ability to provide fully integrated service solutions that are tailored to the needs of our customers, combined with a strong focus on quality and value for money.
We look forward to working closely with the Ministry of Justice to support its objectives of providing more efficient, high-quality services in public prisons.
