UK Civil Aviation Authority contract for Europa Services

Author: News Editor

Thirty staff transfer from previous FM service provider under Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations.

Manchester-based Europa Services has been awarded a 4-year contract for the provision of facilities management services to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Under the £2 million deal, the company will assume responsibility for integrated services (including cleaning and waste disposal) at CAA's Gatwick Airport, Central London and regional offices.

30 staff have already transferred to the company from the previous service provider under Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) or "TUPE" Regulations. These are the UK government's implementation of the European Union Business Transfers Directive which safeguard employees working within public sector organisations if the ownership of a contract changes hands.

Greig Brown, Europa Chief Executive, said: “Already in 2013 we have secured new contracts with world renowned organisations including RSA, PRUPIM and Institution of Engineering and Technology and we are delighted to now also include Civil Aviation Authority in Europa’s portfolio of clients.”

The announcement follows the appointment of building services provider, Inviron, as maintenance contractor (with responsibility for planned preventative maintenance and mechanical and electrical systems at the CAA's Gatwick and Central London offices) in March.
