Forestry Commission logs into Salisbury Group's facilities management
FM innovator, Salisbury Group, has won a competitive tender to provide cleaning, security & support services for up to five years at Silvan House in Edinburgh, the head office of Forestry Commission Scotland and shared UK services for the Forestry Commission.
The 90,000sq. ft five storey building is prime office space, and was bought for £18 million in May this year by a property investment company. It currently also houses Scottish National Heritage, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, and the Department of Works and Pensions.
"With several Scottish Government environmental agencies in the building, it's not surprising that sustainability is a big factor in their business procedures," notes Nigel Buckett, commercial director for Salisbury Group.
"Sustainable practices are embedded into our FM services and we feel that this was an important factor in winning the contract.
"Our environmental policy is to reduce waste in all aspects of our business - from security to engineering - by using sustainable technologies that minimise energy and materials consumption."
In fact, Salisbury has its own energy solutions division specifically tasked to help clients' environmental responsibilities and compliance, reducing their demand for energy and emissions of carbon, water and waste.
Salisbury Group manages many important and iconic landmark commercial sites, more than 250 business premises in total, comprising over 10 million sq.ft across the UK.
