Quadron pledges more Green Flags, apprentices and sustainability to win contract

Quadron Services has won a five-year green-space contract with Wycombe District Council worth £850,000 a year.

Quadron will look after pavilions and changing rooms as well as tackle playgrounds inspection and grounds maintenance for most of Wycombe’s major parks, green spaces and cemetery.

"The deal will see the introduction of a self-monitoring system with scope for residents to provide feedback via the system, called Q-SIS," said a spokeswoman. "Quadron will commission the Sports Turf Research Institute to review the standard of pitches.

"It will recommend regimes required to bring them in line with IOG standards. Quadron has also pledged to work with the council to win more Green Flags during the life of the contract."

She said Quadron would also support Wycombe District Council’s sustainability aims with initiatives to reduce water consumption as well as composting green waste and supplying bedding grown in peat-free compost. 

Three apprentices will be employed on the contract to help with achieving local sustainability and retaining skills within the local area, said managing director Clive Ivil.

Councillor Katrina Wood said: "In partnership with Quadron we want to continue to meet and exceed the high standards that our local residents have come to expect from our play areas, parks and green spaces."
