Mitie wins at Trafalgar Square

Press release   •   Nov 25, 2010 00:14 GMT

We’re pleased to announce that MITIE’s Technical Facilities Management team together with a number of other contractors working with the Greater London Authority (GLA) have won a PFM partnership Award in the Partners in Public Access Facilities category. 

The successful team secured a well-deserved win for the delivery of Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance undertaken on London’s iconic landmark, Trafalgar Square. Over the last two years the GLA has worked closely with a number of its key contractors to introduce a fundamental change to the management and development of Trafalgar Square as a landmark public space, with all parties cooperating in partnership on delivery of essential services. 

The restoration of the fountains and installation of colour LED lighting by our In house projects team last year, serves as one practical example of the partnership applied. MITIE’s role was the installation of LED lighting and repair of old pipe work, with MITIE apprentices doing painstaking work to reinstate a cascade feature that has not operated for twenty five years. 

The results are the elevation of Trafalgar Square to become the “jewel in the crown” of London’s tourist scene. 


Notes for editors

What is MITIE?
We’re the strategic outsourcing company. What does that mean in practice? We manage facilities, properties and assets for our clients across the UK and beyond.

We work with our clients in three ways; some take full advantage of our whole range of expertise, others may only need one aspect of what we do:

Strategy and consultancy
+ Facilities and project management
+ Service delivery

Our strategic input can add value at the highest level by helping clients to manage their assets, while our practical management expertise can save customers money and reduce their carbon emissions. We work with a vast number of clients in every industry across both the public and private sectors and deliver the broadest range of services that can be found in one place: from integrated facilities management to engineering maintenance to lifecycle energy management and much more.

There’s a lot more to MITIE than you probably think. We’re a big company with big ambitions – a leading FTSE 250 support services business, with more than 56,000 people, revenues in excess of £1.7bn, and a reputation for being the best.
