Incentive secures shopping centre contract

Incentive FM, the UK's leading independent facilities company, has further strengthened its relationship with Jones Lang LaSalle, after being awarded a three-year contract to provide a soft services solution at the Church Square Shopping Centre in St Helens.

Under the terms of the deal, Incentive FM will provide all security and cleaning services at the centre. The facilities company was awarded the contract after demonstrating high levels of service at a number of shopping centres managed by Jones Lang LaSalle, including Friars Square Shopping Centre in Aylesbury and Shrewsbury Shopping Centres.

Church Square, located in the heart of St Helens, houses 84 retail outlets and offers customers a range of cafes and food outlets. Incentive FM will also be supporting Jones Lang LaSalle and Church Square on its commitment to the environment, in a bid to ensure that the best sustainable practices are followed - to date 98% of waste is recycled, while electricity consumption has reduced by 6% since 2010.

In addition, Incentive FM has received 'extremely positive' feedback from the 25 members of staff who have been transferred to the company under TUPE, after quickly launching extensive internal training, as well as setting up staff on personal development plans.

Martin Reed, managing director of Incentive FM, said: “Our market leading solutions deliver real value to our clients by raising standards and driving down costs. As a result our relationship with Jones Lang LaSalle and other leading property management companies continue to flourish."

Steve Brogan, centre manager, said: “We are committed to providing the people of St Helens with excellent shopping facilities across the board. Incentive FM will help us achieve that through the company's dedication to high standards and staff development. We are looking forward to a very successful 2014.”
