14forty wins five-year contract with National Grid

14forty, a division of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has won a five-year contract with the National Grid to provide soft facilities management.

The deal will see 500 staff members carrying out services including catering, hospitality, ground maintenance, cleaning and security for the National Grid estate at more than 1,000 UK sites.

It will work together with CBRE, which will provide hard services relating to National Grid's buildings and its systems, including delivering critical engineering work.

Mauro Ortelli, managing director at 14forty, said: "We are looking forward to operating the new integrated model, which will showcase 14forty's wider skills set. The model is quite a unique service to this sector which will ensure a smooth running of services to National Grid."

Carl Longworth, corporate property portfolio manager at National Grid, added: "This new style of working will bring great benefits for us at National Grid, and those who work with us. I was extremely impressed with 14forty and CBRE. While all the tenders were of an extremely high standard it was their innovative approach that really stood out."

14forty has worked with the National Grid since 2009.
