Q&S scoops three-year grounds-care contract for showcase Thames Valley business park

Q&S Commercial Landscape Maintenance has won an impressive three-year contract to look after a big business hub in the Thames Valley.

Green Park in Reading is Q&S’s first major contract outside London, said managing director Sue Payne.

The complex which is owned by Oxford Properites Group, sits in 80ha of sprawling parkland and boasts a freshwater lake.

A team of 11 staff will tackle mowing, hedge and tree care in the parkland, around the site’s 21 office blocks and approach roads. The contract is worth around £350,000 a year.

Q&S will look after all hard and soft landscaped areas.

"Oxford Properties has a reputation for demanding the very best standards from their service partners," said Payne. "We are delighted they have recognised our reputation for customer satisfaction, high standards, attention to detail and value for money.

"We will work alongside the Green Park management team on enhancing the quality of the overall experience to everyone who works or visits Green Park and to be part of the evolution of the site."
