Nurture Landcapes sees business grow by 10% with new contract wins

Nurture Landscapes has grown its business by 10% after winning two new landscape maintenance contracts worth £1.2m a year.

It will provide grounds maintenance and gritting and snow clearance at the Stockley Park business park near Heathrow for Stockley Park Estate Management Limited from July 1, and started work on the IQ Farnborough grounds within the past few weeks.

The £12m a year turnover and 220-employee business based in Windlesham, Surrey also recently picked up a further two contracts worth £400,000.

Chairman and managing director Peter Fane said of the Stockley Park contract: "It’s a fabulous win for us. I think we won it because we came up with some new ideas in terms of our approach on site and our management of the team.

"We also maintain other business parks so we were able to show our experience in Chiswick and Uxbridge."

The site based contract manager, Jan Vnucak and 19 site staff will transfer to Nurture under the TUPE regulations.

Stockley Park Estate Management’s director, Alan Longshaw, said: "We are looking forward to working with Nurture Landscapes over the coming years and developing a genuine working partnership.

"We were impressed by the quality of their tender submission and their work at similar business parks such as Chiswick Park in West London."

Nurture was established in 2008 and mainly handles corporate and public sector grounds maintenance contracts.
