GRAHAM Secures Contracts With NI Councils

Local construction firm GRAHAM has secured two major compliance services contracts with two Northern Ireland councils.

The company, which has a proven track record in the area of water hygiene and Legionella control, will carry out work for Derry City and Strabane District Council and Ards and North Down Borough Council respectively.

The Derry City and Strabane District Council award for the provision of Legionella Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM), Legionella Risk Assessments (LRAs), associated remedial actions and sampling works is the third consecutive contract and covers a three-year term.

GRAHAM will deliver the services across 120 council properties, consisting of leisure facilities, landmark listed buildings, community centres, office space and public conveniences.

The leading facilities management contractor will also continue to provide the council with all of its Legionella control related training requirements.

The Ards and North Down Borough Council contract, covering a period of one-year with a possible two-year extension, is a new partnership that requires GRAHAM to manage and monitor Legionella across 85 council buildings.

Commenting on the latest contract awards, GRAHAM Operations Director Martin Gillespie said: "These high-profile contracts strengthen our water hygiene portfolio in Northern Ireland and reflect our growing reputation for delivering best in class compliance services. We are already servicing Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and the addition of two further contracts with major councils is testament to the expertise that we offer.

"It's particularly pleasing to have been awarded a third consecutive term with Derry City and Strabane District Council, which demonstrates the consistently high standards of service that our team has been providing. New business with Ards and North Down Borough Council is also a great opportunity for us to put our stamp on Legionella service provision in this significant council area."

Offering consultancy and training expertise, GRAHAM's services ensure the prevention of potentially fatal waterborne pathogens, scale and corrosion as well as the creation of optimum performance conditions for industrial water systems.
