After an issue with their previous maintenance contractor, the Isle of Wight Council were in need of a team that could mobilise rapidly to carry out responsive repairs, planned preventative maintenance and minor project quotations for all of their assets.
Having provided this maintenance service previously for Isle of Wight Council and with a local office; after a procurement exercise, Mountjoy was found to be the right contractor to deliver an interim service. The contract was for four months until the full tender was procured.
Mountjoy’s direct team provide the service across the Council’s property estate including County Hall, schools and other education related premises, libraries, offices, leisure centres, fire stations, care homes, day centres and other miscellaneous properties. The team have agreed three levels of response priorities with the Council to allow our Newport operations centre to allocate the most urgent jobs first. A team of thirteen qualified tradesmen deliver the planned and day-to-day works.
As part of Mountjoy’s Social Value Plan and commitment to making a positive contribution to local communities, the contract team have recently installed a defibrillator in Ryde Library for free as a good will gesture.
