Interserve has won a £35m contract to deliver total facilities management services at a London Hospital.

Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust has appointed the embattled support services and construction firm to the five-year contract.

The company will provide retail and patient catering, cleaning, security, front of house, waste management, energy management, portering and repair and maintenance services to the 450-bed King George Hospital (pictured) based in Redbridge, London.

Tahir Ahmed, director of estates and facilities at Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust said: “We have been really impressed with the way Interserve developed a unique service proposal that was tailored to our needs and environment.”

Earlier this week Building revealed the struggling firm’s construction arm was running late on a £25m scheme on a London street made famous by the Oasis album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?

Building understands the job to turn a host of shops, including fabric retailers and record stores, into a new hotel, residential and retail, has run into problems with the groundworks.

Interserve declined to comment but scotched reports the job was up to a year late. The client client PMB Holdings was contacted for comment.

The firm did confirm it would be be carrying out less construction work in the capital with its head of construction in the capital, Jeremy James, leaving the business last month.

Interserve’s fit-out business Paragon will continue to target work in London but the firm’s building business is now expected to concentrate more on the regions instead including strongholds such as Birmingham.
