Specialist contract awarded by Jones Lang LaSalle

Incentive FM has been chosen to implement and manage an integrated FM solution for Hexagon Tower which provides laboratory accommodation, specialist scientific services and serviced office space near Manchester city centre.

Hexagon Tower is a former ICI research, development and production centre which is managed by property management company Jones Lang LaSalle, who currently works with Incentive FM on a number of other properties within its portfolio.

Under the terms of the three year contract Incentive FM will be responsible for cleaning the laboratories and offices, running reception and all mail and reprographics services. Grounds maintenance, parking and all health and safety management will also be provided as part of the solution. Incentive will also manage all catering services at the site’s restaurant facility on the ground floor which is open throughout the day and serves a range of sandwiches, drinks, breakfast baps and full three-course meals. 25 staff will transfer to Incentive under TUPE.

Stephanie Moore, senior surveyor at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: “Hexagon Tower offers an unrivalled combination of serviced offices and laboratory accommodation for scientific and technology-based organisations. Because of the specialist nature of the building we needed an FM partner who had the knowledge and expertise within the pharmaceutical sector to meet these additional challenges and ensure our clients receive the best service.”

Martin Reed, director at Incentive FM, said: “The combination of our knowledge of the specialist cleaning methods and products required by the sector and our ability to self deliver all aspects of the contract means that our solution is both cost effective and innovative.”
