EMCOR wins contracts for facilities services
NORWALK, CONN. — EMCOR Facilities Services, a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, has been awarded several major new projects in both the public and private sectors. These projects involve the maintenance, upgrading, management and operation of "mission critical" facilities across the country and highlight EMCOR's expertise in providing facilities services solutions, the company said in mid-September.
"There is no doubt that there's a high degree of expertise required to properly maintain and optimize today's sophisticated facilities," said Frank T. MacInnis, chairman and CEO of EMCOR. " Because facilities are among the most significant assets and cost centers of virtually every organization, our customers continue to seek innovative ways to manage their facilities expenditures more effectively. By taking over responsibility for facilities management so our customers can concentrate on their core businesses, we are assisting them in gaining a competitive edge."
EMCOR's new facilities services projects include:
- The World Bank, Washington — EFS has been awarded a five-year (with four option years) contract to provide facilities management services for The World Bank's 3.8 million sq. ft. of space in Washington. These services will encompass building infrastructure, building maintenance services and facilities management help desk services.
As part of the project, EFS will manage a delivery team of more than 200 professionals, providing a solution that streamlines the activities of various contracts by reducing by two-thirds the number of specialty contractors serving The World Bank, EMCOR said. A core component of the company's streamlined approach includes using the technical capabilities of one of EMCOR's local Washington-area subsidiaries to provide services to The World Bank's life safety systems, emergency generators and chillers.
- Lackland Air Force Base, Lackland, Texas — The U. S. Air Force has awarded EFS a design/build contract to provide system improvements, boiler replacement and upgrading of airhandling units to the U.S. Air Force Wilford Hall Medical Center located at Lackland AFB. One of EMCOR's local subsidiaries is serving as the general contractor and will manage the modernization of these HVAC systems.
- Stop and Shop Supermarkets — EFS will provide general maintenance services to 280 supermarkets in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, under the terms of this 38-month contract award. General maintenance services will be supported by the deployment of 35 mobile technicians located across EMCOR's local subsidiaries, with the goal of developing a predictive maintenance approach. EFS is bringing into its organization 47 Stop and Shop employees, including full-time technicians and management personnel.
- Bureau of State Office Buildings, Boston — The bureau has awarded EFS a three-year contract that includes 24/7 remote monitoring for more than 1.8 million sq. ft. in Boston. This four-building complex, referred to as the Boston Government Center, includes the Mc-Cormack Building, the Massachusetts State House, the Charles Hurley Building and the Erich Lindemann Building.
