Forestry Commission Logs into Salisbury Group's Facilities Management

FM innovators,Salisbury Group, have won a competitive tender to provide cleaning, security & support services for up to five years at Silvan House in Edinburgh, the head office ofForestry Commission Scotlandand shared UK services for the Forestry Commission.

The 90,000 sq ft five storey building is prime office space, and was bought for £18 million in May this year by a property investment company. It currently also houses Scottish National Heritage, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, and the Department of Works and Pensions.

Nigel Buckett, Commercial Director for Salisbury Group, said:

"With several Scottish Government environmental agencies in the building, it's not surprising that sustainability is a big factor in their business procedures. Sustainable practices are embedded into our FM services and we feel that this was an important factor in winning the contract."

"Our environmental policy is to reduce waste in all aspects of our business - from security to engineering - by using sustainable technologies that minimize energy and materials consumption."

In fact, Salisbury has its ownenergy solutions divisionspecifically tasked to help clients' environmental responsibilities and compliance, reducing their demand for energy and emissions of carbon, water and waste.
