Carillion has won support services contracts from Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) and Barts Health NHS Trust, which are worth a combined total of £80m.

At Heathrow Airport, Carillion will provide a range of soft facilities management services, together with fabric maintenance for terminals 3 and 5, under a contract that will run until March 2019.

Carillion will also furnish hard FM services, including planned and reactive mechanical and electrical engineering maintenance for terminal 2, under a contract that will run until December 2017, with the option to extend.

These contracts are in addition to the contract Carillion already has to provide FM services for Terminal 1 and the firm says “it says further consolidates the strong relationship” the company has established with HAL.

Carillion has also signed a 22-month contract with Barts Health NHS Trust to provide soft facilities management services to a number of the trust’s properties, including Whipps Cross and Mile End hospitals.

This extends the relationship Carillion has with Barts Health, for which Carillion already provides soft services at the Barts and Royal London hospitals.

Carillion chief executive, Richard Howson, said: “We are delighted to have been selected for these contracts, which continue our success in work-winning in 2014. We look forward to building on the strong relationships we have developed with Heathrow Airport Limited and with Barts Health and to working with them to support the delivery of an excellent experience for customers and patients.”
