FM for the man at the Pru

EMCOR Group (UK) has been appointed by PRUPIM, global real estate investment manager, to provide integrated facilities management services across its UK commercial investment property portfolio. The contract covers services worth in the region of £200 million over five years and includes more than 200 commercial properties and 17 million square feet of commercial space throughout the UK across the principal commercial property sectors including retail parks, industrial estates, offices and business parks. PRUPIM’s flagship sustainable business park - Green Park in Reading - and landmark buildings, such as Holborn Bars in London, and the Royal Exchange in Manchester, are covered under the terms of the contract.

EMCOR will deliver a total facilities management contract to over 2500 occupiers nationwide, covering England, Wales and Scotland. EMCOR will assist PRUPIM in delivering core activities, including service charge accounting, energy management and, crucially, the enhancement of occupier satisfaction. The contract also comprises the provision of building engineering services, fabric maintenance, security, front-of- house services, cleaning and grounds maintenance and is driven through a dedicated 24-hour service desk operation and control centre.

“EMCOR is very honoured to have been selected by PRUPIM; we look forward to developing a long and successful strategic partnership, as we work together to significantly drive forward the performance of PRUPIM’s property portfolio,” said Nick Morris, managing director, EMCOR Facilities Services. “Customer satisfaction is our number one objective - both the satisfaction of PRUPIM, and the satisfaction of all of PRUPIM’s occupiers.”

Peter Best, head of UK asset management at PRUPIM, said: “Driving value through the efficient management of commercial property portfolios is more important than ever, and we look forward to EMCOR helping us deliver that.”
