We are thrilled to announce a new partnership that celebrates our commitment to creating and maintaining beautiful outdoor spaces. M&Y Maintenance and Construction has secured an eight-month contract with One Manchester, marking an exciting chapter in our journey.
A Green Commitment
This £136,000 contract will see M&Y providing grounds maintenance services across the Greater Manchester region. As part of our role, we will focus on enhancing the natural beauty of public spaces on One Manchester’s estates. This includes services such as grass-cutting and hedge-trimming, ensuring that these communal areas are inviting and well-maintained.
A Shared Vision for Impact
Kirk Moore, Facilities and Environmental Manager from One Manchester, shared his enthusiasm for this partnership: “One Manchester is pleased to be working in partnership with M&Y on a new approach to delivering our Grounds Maintenance services. The delivery of these services has been changed to create the most efficient and effective way of working that promotes visibility, consistency, and connection with our communities, and we look forward to working together and seeing positive impacts for our customers.”
Leading in Grounds Maintenance
Our selection for this contract was made possible through Fusion21’s Grounds Maintenance Framework, where M&Y is the leading provider in the North-West region.
