Saltire Facilities Management has been awarded a contract by The City of Edinburgh Council, to provide domestic gas repair and maintenance services.

The contract was awarded to Saltire as it already enjoys a reputation for delivering top quality work, on time and on budget. Saltire will carry out domestic repair and maintenance in 8000 properties right across Edinburgh, including in Portobello, Leith, and Morningside.

The work is initially set to take two years to complete, with an option to extend the contract for a further two years to 2025. With the contract set to net Saltire an estimated £0.9 million per year, this represents a significant commitment to the city and residents of the nation’s capital.

Saltire has been on a significant growth trajectory since being acquired by building services investment company United Capital in May 2020. The Bothwell-based company has won, and secured extensions on, a range of contracts in the West Coast of Scotland, and has expanded its footprint into the East Coast, securing work with Angus Council and extending contracts with Perth and Kinross Council and Viewpoint Housing Association. It has also expanded into the midlands, using a 15-year contract with social housing provider Stonewater to establish a base in Birmingham. Saltire is now one of the UK’s most trusted names in facilities management.

Saltire Managing Director John Reynolds, commented “We are all thoroughly pleased to have been awarded this contract by The City of Edinburgh Council, based on our ability to deliver first-class work on budget. Saltire has worked hard in the last year to expand our operations even throughout the pandemic, and taking into account lockdowns and the cessation of non-essential work. We are incredibly ambitious and focused on delivering excellence for all of our customers whether public sector, commercial, or domestic. We will be aiming to win more large contracts as the facilities management sector begins to open up once again’.
