Mitie Secures Contract with UK’s Largest Telecoms Estate 
10 December 2020

Mitie has won a retender with Cornerstone, the leading UK mobile infrastructure services company.

The five-and-a-half-year contract covers maintenance and engineering for 20,000 telecoms assets, including every O2 and Vodafone cell site in the UK.

Cornerstone is a joint venture with Telefonica and Vodafone, providing critical national telecoms infrastructure.


The First Cellular Telecoms Engineering Apprenticeship


Cornerstone’s sites are spread across every corner of the UK, so the work will be supported by Mitie’s team of mobile engineers, including specialist climbing engineers. 

Mitie will also be working to create a new “Telecoms Academy’” to find, inspire and hire the next generation of telecoms talent. This will include working with Cornerstone and DAEL Telecom to create the first Cellular Telecoms Engineering Apprenticeship.

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director of Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie, said: “Over the past five years, we have been proud to support Cornerstone and play our part in maintaining the nation’s critical telecoms infrastructure. It’s fantastic to see the hard work of the team rewarded with this new contract.”

Denis Coakley, Chief Operating Officer at Cornerstone, said: “Cornerstone is pleased to partner with Mitie who understands our goals and determination to deliver excellence in telecoms infrastructure management in an innovative way. Our combined industry expertise and our shared ambition will accelerate a step-change in the management of mobile passive infrastructure in the UK. We look forward to a successful partnership in the years ahead.
