The National Australia Group (NAG), one of the world's largest and most successful financial services groups, has extended its energy and technical services contract with GSH, the leading provider of technology-driven energy and facilities management solutions to 2020 in a deal worth over £100 million.
Under the terms of the contract extension GSH will continue to take responsibility for energy management across the whole of the NAG (better known under their operational brands of Yorkshire Bank and Clydesdale Bank) portfolio, some 450 high street branches, head office properties and business-critical data centres located throughout the UK. In addition GSH will undertake refurbishment projects.
GSH first started work with NAGE in 2007 and as part of the new deal will provide guaranteed savings across the business of in excess of £8 million, without affecting service levels and performance, through its smart engineering and energy expertise. The company will also be introducing a new scheduling solution for its mobile engineers.
Commenting on the contract extension Dan Moore, Head of Property at NAG, said, "We have a strong and evolving CSR programme and are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. Over the past 5 years we have worked closely with GSH and they have played a vital role in helping us to achieve our targets. This, and their excellent service delivery record on M&E, are the main reasons that we are happy to commit for the long term to 2020."
John Davy, Group Managing Director at GSH, said: "By listening to our clients and understanding their business strategy and long term objectives we were able to develop an energy led engineering model which ensures the same high level of service, while guaranteeing both carbon and financial reductions over the next 8 years. This contract extension is a good demonstration of the true partnerships that we have with our clients and how, by working closely with them, we can deliver true bottom line benefits. It also reinforces our position as the market-leader in the application of technology to effectively manage energy usage."
