Sterling Work by Carillion

24 February 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
Scottish Procurement and Scottish Ministers have teamed up with Carillion Services to benefit from the economies of scale that will come from a contract covering National Museums of Scotland, the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration and Historic Scotland. Carillion’s ability to provide flexible resource to make service delivery more efficient was a big factor in the decision.

The new contract sees Carillion providing a range of engineering and soft services to over 180 sites throughout Scotland.

(The contract is valued at £7m and will run for five years with a two year extension clause.)

Carillion has held the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration and National Museums of Scotland accounts for ten and seven years respectively and recently confirmed a TFM deal with Registers of Scotland, servicing headquarter offices in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. Historic Scotland’s 140 site estate includes Stirling Castle (pictured) and Edinburgh Castle into its portfolio.
