Acivico bring building works contracts into Birmingham as part of drive to boost economy 

Birmingham-based service provider Acivico have announced the successful procurement of a number of Midlands contractors to replace their existing Building Fabric Repairs & Maintenance (BFRM) arrangements.

Local contractors have been selected following a robust procurement exercise held in close consultation with Acivico’s client, Birmingham City Council (BCC). These three-year contracts are due to commence later this month.

The new model will continue to support BCC’s corporate and general operational estate and schools, as well as Acivico’s wider regional private-sector client base, and offer a more streamlined, cost-efficient and customer-focused service.

The companies awarded these contracts include city-based Trios Property Ltd for Emergency Call Out and Reactive Repairs Delivery and Ashdurn Ltd for Scaffolding, while Roofing Works will be shared between Solihull Roofing & Building, the M&J Group and Rio Asphalt.

Contracts for General Building Projects have been awarded to Trios Property Ltd, Foster Property Maintenance, Willmott Dixon, Graham FM and Solihull Roofing & Building.

Each supplier was evaluated based on cost, social value, quality of work and the economic value brought into Birmingham, and Acivico were keen to select established local firms with an excellent track record who could deliver exceptional service over the long term.

Leo McMulkin, Head of Total Facilities Management at Acivico, said: “We made the decision to put these contracts out to market so that we could secure better value for our customers and strengthen our relationships with locally-based firms across the region."

“Our aim as an organisation is very much focused around boosting the local economy, so we’re delighted to be bringing more work into Birmingham and supporting employment; this new model will drive improvements in service and help to ensure clients only pay for the time and materials actually used in the delivery of their works."

“All our contractors are either already or have agreed to sign up to the Birmingham Charter for Social Responsibility, and we’ll be closely monitoring customer satisfaction to ensure the quality of work is consistent and that value is driven throughout our whole supply chain.”
