TeamSport and Place First come on board



A Midlands based facilities management firm has made a bright start to the year by landing two six-figure national contracts with a go-karting attraction and a residential lettings company.


Diamond Facilities Support, based on Birmingham Business Park, is expanding both its leisure and housing portfolio by working with Team Sport and PlaceFirst on long-term agreements.


Team Sport operate 24 go-karting tracks around the UK, while Place First design, build and maintain their own neighbourhoods in locations such as Leeds, Hartlepool and Liverpool.


Both companies will receive a full service offering, ranging from a 24-hour reactive helpdesk and online management system, through to mechanical and electrical compliance, and quoted works.


Adam Atkins, joint managing director at Diamond Facilities Support, said: “These two contracts we’ve won typifies the wide-ranging client base we are developing via word of mouth, which is encouraging news for our continued growth.


“We are excited about our partnership with Place First. This is a new concept in re-energising depressed areas by bringing quality property to the private rental sector and modernising surrounding amenities.


“We are expecting to see this concept expand further around the UK in the near future, so securing this contract could be crucial.


“Team Sport is another fantastic win for us – these are highly popular venues that require frequent attention.


“Moving forward we will be focusing our efforts on expanding our business into markets including fire and security, commercial cleaning and drainage – our focus on direct employment will be key and sets us apart from the competition, we anticipate that 90 per cent of everything we do will be through in-house labour which is unheard of in the industry.”
