Carillion, in a joint venture with CBRE, has been selected as the preferred bidder for a 10-year strategic partnership with Stockport council, initially expected to be worth over £100m.

The contract will see the Carillion JV, known as the Stockport Strategic Property Partnership (SSPP), take responsibility for the strategic management of all the council’s property services. 

The JV will be established in September 2013, with the objective of transforming the council’s operational and non-operational property portfolios.  

 The JV will also have the opportunity to provide similar services to other councils within the Greater Manchester area, with those councils having the option to procure services from the JV without the need for further procurement processes or costs.

Carillion will provide strategic advisory services for estates management, facilities management, energy management and capital projects, with CBRE delivering strategic asset management and development advice. 

Carillion will also have an exclusive option to deliver operational professional services, which are currently being delivered by the incumbent provider NPS Stockport Ltd., including estates management and multi-disciplinary design.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson, said: “I believe this further success in the local authority outsourcing market once again reflects our ability to provide integrated service solutions that enable local authorities to reduce costs without sacrificing service quality.”

“I am confident that the new operating model will deliver an effective and efficient strategic propert service to meet the Council’s future priorities.”
