Semperian - Decoration and Pre-Paint Repairs

The requirements:  Semperian Investment Partners, an infrastructure manager, was launched in 2007 with a £1.0bn portfolio of infrastructure assets. They manage a portfolio covering the operational, commercial, financial and administrative functions for their assets.    

Mitie successfully secured a six year contract worth an expected £18m with Semperian to provide internal and external painting works throughout the UK.

This summer, the North West branch mobilised and completed 26 schools, valuing approx £240k. 

The range of work required included pre painting repairs and internal and external decorations to both modern built schools and those with specific conservation buildings such as Calderstones where John Lennon attended.

How we helped:  By working in partnership with Semperian this summer, they carried out a gap analysis of Mitie’s tradespeople ensuring health and safety awareness training was up to date and holding additional sessions where required. As a contract requirement CSCS holders were checked and commissioned DBS

Mitie developed project meetings to plan the programme to review and focus on achieving targets.  As the buildings were occasionally used in the summer months, Mitie ensured health and safety was paramount.

Mitie’s SMSTS supervisors developed good working relationships with the caretakers ensuring consistent communication with other in house contractors to accommodate their arrangements.

The results:  With Mitie’s extensive experience, our painters and decorators were able to demonstrate our expertise and knowledge by completing the work to the 26 schools within timescales and to a high standard.

The client’s health and safety consultants carried comprehensive safety audits on a weekly basis across the sites and Mitie scored overall 94%.

The four members of the management team where awarded a Mitie Star for the successful running of the contract.

“Everything has gone well from planning through to completion and as a result of the hard work of our Team’s, we have been complimented by our client on a job well done.  The Team have made great strides in building client confidence, delivering all schools on time, to a good standard and within budgets" Regional Manager
