A culture of innovation, sustainability and client focus has seen Ventia receive a one-year extension to our facilities management contract with Auckland Council this week. 

The initial contract commenced in July 2017 and sees Ventia deliver full facilities management services including maintenance of Council's assets such as parks, buildings and community facilities such as libraries, community halls, pools and public toilets, as well as sports field renovations. 

From April 2019, the contract expanded to include a range of additional streetscape services including berm mowing and vegetation control, town centre cleaning, litter collection, street furniture maintenance, bus shelter cleaning, and litter bin emptying. 

General Manager Local Government Katie James says that the team's efforts throughout the challenging COVID-19 pandemic along with a commitment to delivering service excellence for the client has helped secure this extension. 

"I am really proud of the way the team has stepped up to deliver on our commitments," Katie says.

The past couple of years have been challenging for businesses across the globe, but the passion of our team, and the support of our subcontractors, has helped us ensure we are delivering value and a high standard of asset management for our client.

This extension pushes the contract out to 30 June 2024 and encompasses two regions - Tahi and Wha.
