SS Facility Services Landscaping is all set to continue its ten-year long partnership with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead for a further four years. ISS is absolutely delighted with the extension award, which has been granted due to the Royal Borough’s satisfaction with the service performance and value for money being delivered across the Borough. In fact, the extension will see ISS delivering a significant saving to the Council in each year of the extension period, without any reduction in the service, based on flexible use of resources and adaptability.

ISS has maintained all of the Royal Borough’s parks, gardens, open spaces, sports facilities, closed churchyards, cemeteries, play areas and other amenity and highway areas since 2000. In addition to grounds maintenance duties, ISS also works with Borough staff clearing snow from the streets and paths, clearing fallen trees after storms and helping with sandbag filling during periods of flood.

A key partnership priority has always focused on sustainable innovation, which is a core value common to both ISS and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Engaging with the public and key stakeholders to form real partnerships and to understand their requirements is the recipe to developing strong relationships that will produce benefits to all parties.

Under a joint initiative with the client and Blue Sky, a social enterprise set up to successfully move people coming out of prison into paid long-term employment, ISS retained five ex-offenders to work in the Borough’s parks and gardens on a temporary six month contract. This arrangement was successfully transformed into a permanent working agreement, making Windsor and Maidenhead the first local authority in the country to achieve this aim.

ISS will continue to work with the local volunteer groups on social enterprise initiatives and create job opportunities for less advantaged members of the community.

Gillian Duggan, Managing Director of Amey’s Built Environment division, said: “We are pleased to further enhance our partnership with the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust and pass on the efficiency savings generated from our innovative ideas.” Neil Hathaway, head of estates and facilities for the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, said: “The new transport arrangements have allowed us to focus on quality, customer requirements and value for money. The benefits of the improved service will help staff plan their work, with

the ultimate winner being the service user.”


Balfour Beatty Engineering Services (BBES) has secured a contract to create a sustainable new landmark building, the Energy Technologies Building at the University of Nottingham. The new 2,500m² facility will provide the University with a centre that is specifically designed for continuing and developing its world-leading energy research. With this in mind, the £6.4 million facility designed by architects Maber, will be an exemplar of low- carbon technology through the minimisation of its demands for heating, cooling,

lighting and ventilation mediums from non-sustainable sources. The building has also been designed to maximise energy from renewable and ambient

sources with the sustainable design including innovative earth duct passive cooling which uses the thermal mass of the surrounding earth to provide passive cooling and preheating of ventilation air. Working for main

contractor Clegg Construction and M&E consultants, Aecom, BBES will be responsible for the design, supply and installation of building services including heating, cooling and laboratory water as well as transformers, propane chillers, biofuel CHP

and research gases. As part of the project BBES will also be installing electric car charging points.

The company will also be integrating the building’s electrical supply with the University’s smart grid which will allow the University the ability to monitor and interrogate electrical load movements as part of its research. Work will also include BBES providing the infrastructure for some of the main research laboratories.
