In a significant stride towards expanding its footprint in the educational sector, City Group has recently clinched a substantial contract with five schools spread across Lancashire. This achievement marks a pivotal moment for City Group as it embarks on providing comprehensive estate and grounds management services to these educational institutions.

The scope of the contract is substantial, encompassing the meticulous maintenance of extensive grounds spanning over a quarter of a million square feet across the school campuses. Such a significant undertaking underscores City Group’s commitment to excellence and its capability to manage large-scale projects with precision and proficiency.

One of the standout features of this contract is the sheer magnitude of the ground maintenance required, presenting a formidable challenge for any service provider. However, City Group is well-prepared to rise to the occasion. To ensure that the contractual obligations are not merely met but exceeded, City Group has strategically invested an additional £100,000 in state-of-the-art machinery.

Among the noteworthy acquisitions is the John Deere 6120R select edition tractor equipped with a Quicke Q4M loader, offering unparalleled efficiency and versatility in handling various tasks across the expansive school grounds. Complementing this investment is the acquisition of a 283R mulcher mower, designed to deliver superior performance in tackling the grass-cutting requirements with precision and speed.

This strategic investment in cutting-edge machinery underscores City Group’s unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional service quality and exceeding client expectations. By equipping its in-house grounds team with the latest tools and technology, City Group not only ensures the seamless execution of its contractual obligations but also positions itself as a leader in estate and grounds management services.

The significance of this contract extends beyond the immediate scope of services provided. It underscores City Group’s growing presence in the education sector and its ability to tailor solutions to meet the unique needs of educational trusts and institutions. By partnering with City Group, the educational trust that manages the schools in Lancashire is poised to benefit from a holistic approach to estate and grounds management, enhancing the overall learning environment for students and faculty alike.

Looking ahead, City Group remains committed to leveraging its expertise, resources, and innovation to deliver tangible value to its clients across various sectors. As it embarks on this new partnership chapter with the Educational Trust in Lancashire, City Group is poised to set new benchmarks for excellence in estate and grounds management services, further solidifying its reputation as a trusted industry leader.
