Centrica

Rethinking facilities management to reduce costs and improve efficiency

  • Streamlined existing processes to improve effectiveness and reduce costs
  • Consolidated 16 service elements into one service agreement for new tendering process

The facilities management operations at Centrica, the multinational energy and services company with a portfolio of 1.6m m2, had remained unchanged for 10 years. 

Operated through a managing agent and six main service suppliers, Drees & Sommer UK were appointed to review and streamline processes in order to improve effectiveness and reduce costs. 

In the first phase, a new strategy was implemented on the existing facilities management operation to improve efficiency and a subsequent phase looked at procurement.

Sixteen service elements across 140 sites were consolidated into one service agreement and tender document which met all of Centrica’s project criteria.
