Skanska is readying itself for growth in its facilities service business, with two senior promotions.
Jane Sansome will move from Skansk’s infrastructure development business to become business director for its facilities operations.
Previously Ms Sansome was Capital Hospitals chief executive and led the consortium responsible for delivering the £1bn redevelopment of the St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London hospitals in central London.
Skanska facilities services project director Matthew Inskip is being promoted to Skanska’s facilities services business as operations director. Mr Inskip will join operations directors John Chown and Mike Bartlam.
Skanska’s facilities services team won the asset and total facilities management contract for Woking Borough Council last year and it said local authorities were a new “key market” for the group.
The contract covers 63 locations and includes the maintenance and asset management of the asset and total facilities management contact for Woking Borough Council, maintaining 63 sites within the borough over a four-year period.
The team also expanded into the sustainable waste management market, developing an innovative behavioural change programme for a number of Barts Health NHS Trust hospitals.
Skanska’s facilities business is led by managing director Katy Dowding.
She said: “Skanska is entering a period of significant expansion, as the economy picks up and the strategic decisions we have made over recent years start to bear fruit. I am strengthening my senior team to ensure that we have the capacity and resilience needed to meet our goals over the coming years.
