Under the contract, Vinci will provide planned and reactive maintenance services to around 180 of the department store’s locations nationwide as well as stores in the Republic of Ireland.


Vinci said the contract included fabric, HVAC, lift and escalators, lighting and electrical services within a single contract arrangement.

Simon Dales, director of store operations for Debenhams, said: “Entering into a one stop all-inclusive contract with Vinci Facilities is an important move and will deliver overall efficiencies in management and operating costs while, at the same time, enhance the store environment and experience for our customers and colleagues.”


In May last year, Debenhams awarded a five-year contract extension to support services provider Interserve. It is providing cleaning, washroom services, window cleaning and pest control services at the retailer’s 124 stores and head office until 2018 under the deal, which has and extension option, and is worth up to £50 million.
