14forty wins £15m contract with Cadent Gas
14forty recently won a £15m total facilities management (FM) contract with Cadent Gas to provide soft and hard services across more than 70 UK sites. Cadent is the UK’s largest gas distribution network. It manages a network of more than 80,000 miles of pipe, most of it underground, which transports gas to approximately 11m customers.
Under the new three-year agreement, 14forty will serve 15 large office premises and a variety of critical supply depots for Cadent’s gas engineers, who maintain, repair and replace piping and respond to emergency callouts. 14forty has worked for Cadent since 2016, but previously only supplied soft FM services, such as reception, catering, cleaning and security.
“We’ve worked hard over the last five years to win the client’s trust and build an excellent working relationship,” said Mauro Ortelli, 14forty’s managing director. “So, when our original contract was due for renewal, we incorporated hard FM services, which relate to physical building structures, into our provision.
“These were previously undertaken by another company. However, the client loved our proposal and gave us the work.”
