At Shed we are super proud to have secured a 3-year contract extension with DSFS Ltd, to continue to maintain the grounds of Chesterfield Royal Hospital. This extension period was part of the original contract tendered in 2021, of which we are delighted to be awarded.
After caring for the grounds for the past year, the extension of the contract was awarded following 100% KPI performance throughout all services of the contract in year 1.
The Chesterfield Royal Hospital provides care services to patients across North Derbyshire and is one of the area’s largest and hospitals. The site has extensive grounds and outdoor spaces, including various landscaped areas and multiple internal courtyards, all of which form part of the contracted works.
Craig Clapperton, Operations Manager, who oversees the contract said:
“I am delighted that Shed have secured the contract renewal with DSFS Ltd. We’ve been providing services to Chesterfield Royal Hospital for the past year and are so pleased to be continuing our strong relationship with them by securing this contract.
We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved to date, both on the grounds surrounding the hospital and through the improvement works on the multiple internal courtyards. Our team find the work both challenging and very rewarding, operating on the inner courtyards is very different compared to our usual contract work, where we access them through the public corridors. This has created demands for our team in terms of logistics and health and safety, but they have tackled this with enthusiasm and professionalism. The positive comments we receive from both the employees at the hospital and the patients alike make it all worthwhile!
To have the contract extended for a further 3 years is a fantastic endorsement of our services and underlines the excellent job that our experienced team have delivered. We look forward to continuing to work with DSFS and to develop a longstanding relationship with this important client, providing a reliable and professional service.”
Emma Morten, Estates Contract Manager for Derbyshire Support and Facilities Services Ltd (DSFS) said about the 3-year contract award with Shed:
“Working with Shed over the last year has been an absolute pleasure and their high standard of workmanship, underpinned by their attention to detail has safeguarded continual outstanding service across the site. Their hard work, dedication, knowledge, and commitment applied to the ground’s maintenance provision is a testament to the site and the image it portrays today.
I look forward to continuing to build on our strong supplier relationship over the next 3 years, ensuring the site continues to maintain its impressive standard, through Shed’s professional and reliable standards.”
This marks an exciting time for us, to go alongside celebrating our 20th Birthday in January this year.
