Amey Takes On Military

31 August 2018
 

Leading public service provider Amey has completed its acquisition of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Regional Prime and National Housing Prime contracts. 

Formerly managed as a joint venture between Carillion and Amey, the contracts include a range of military infrastructure and housing services delivered on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), including the repair and maintenance of service family homes and other assets on the MOD estate. 

Amey’s extensive experience in the defence sector include supporting organisations through specialising in Facilities Asset Management.  Amey provides services to the MOD’s Whitehall headquarters as well as delivering and maintaining a worldwide fleet of vehicles for the MOD through its joint venture ALC.  

Following the liquidation of Carillion in January, Amey has worked closely with the official receiver to ensure continuity of service for serving personnel and their families, in addition to protecting more than 4000 jobs, both directly and through a national supply chain. 

The team has already undertaken an extensive audit of its service provision, including engagement with military families to identify areas for improvement, ensuring it is focussed on end user needs. 

Amey is also using its consulting, planning and asset management capabilities to provide a more effective service. Under the new contract, a team of analysts will process vast amounts of project data and creating real-time performance dashboards to improve the way maintenance tasks are scheduled and mobile workforces managed.   

Andy Milner, Amey’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We have worked hard over the last six months to fully acquire the CarillionAmey business into Amey. Our aim has been to ensure service personnel and their families continue to receive a high quality, uninterrupted service and I am extremely pleased that we have managed to secure 4000 jobs in the process.”
