Salisbury enters local government market

Salisbury Group has secured an important agreement with Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) [later merged into Buckinghamshire Council]. The contract includes the provision of mechanical and electrical planned and reactive maintenance services to all Council sites and facilities across the Vale.

The three-year contract marks Salisbury Group’s entry into the local government sector. It will see the company apply its central government expertise and multi-site, mobile engineering capabilities to support AVDC in achieving its strategic goals. The Council has the option to extend the contract by a further two years.

Salisbury Group won a competitive tendering exercise and its submission was praised for its high quality solution and its focus on the importance of delivering value across a range of areas, as well as its cost effectiveness. The two organisations are now working closely together to mobilise the contract, with services due to commence on 1 April 2018.

Teresa Lane, Assistant Director of Aylesbury Vale District Council, said:

AVDC’s property portfolio plays an important part in generating income. This contract is designed to help us achieve our ambitious vision and goals.
