Amsterdam awards SPIE the maintenance of three of its six building sections


Amsterdam, September 24, 2019 – SPIE, the independent European leader in multitechnical services in the areas of energy and communication, will be maintaining for the next two years several buildings of the Amsterdam Council. This contract concerns the maintenance of every building-related installations.

The Amsterdam Council launched a central call for tenders for the maintenance of all its buildings. This represents more than 70 structures that have been divided into six lots. As any maintenance partner is only allowed to maintain a maximum of three lots, SPIE has taken full advantage of its strengths and won a contract for the maintenance of municipal district offices, parent-child centres & city gardens and council waste collection areas. This is the first time that several maintenance operations at the Amsterdam Council sites have been combined into a single contract. This includes the maintenance of HVAC, sanitary and security systems as well as electrical and mechanical installations. With the Amsterdam Council, SPIE is actively developing technical solutions to make their installations more energy-efficient and their buildings more sustainable in order to comply with the climate agreement.

The Tech FM business unit is responsible for this contract. SPIE can handle the entire scope of the e-fficient building market thanks to the support of the various business units within this segment. "This is SPIE at its best”, says SPIE Nederland’s business development manager, Machiel van Klink. “The collaboration with Amsterdam Council is gratifying and gives us the opportunity to further improve a partnership that we hope will continue for a long time to come”. After two years, the Council will have the option to extend the collaboration twice, each time for one year. “This is of course our objective”, says Machiel van Klink.
