Wakefield awards £30m contract to Arcadis

Wakefield Council has appointed design and consultancy firm Arcadis to deliver its Property and Facilities Management Services.

Through seeking a partnership which will help secure jobs for local people and enable staff, customers and services to benefit from private sector expertise and investment, Wakefield Council will gain support from the company in it’s drive to generate up to £27 million in savings this year.

The appointment will help support economic growth in the area as well as helping the Council to improve infrastructure, create new jobs for the people of Wakefield.

Bill Green, Arcadis head of strategic partnerships, explained: “Councils are under more pressure than ever before to deliver better outcomes using less resources and that looks set to continue. With less money available, public sector organisations are turning to long term partners to optimise the benefits from combining public and private sector capabilities.

“It is a privilege to be assisting one of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s leading members through the creation of more efficient and sustainable services, whilst working together to deliver better outcomes for local people across the Wakefield District over the next decade.”
