Argent has recently been awarded the contract for the provision repair and maintenance of commercial catering equipment and gas testing to schools, welfare establishments and other establishments, within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

The catering services operate in 97% of education establishments across the Borough and are provided by Children School’s and Families Service Contract Services (CSFCS) – the Children’s Services Department’s in-house provider.

Having been shortlisted at PQQ stage, Argent were invited to tender – this was accepted and the three year contract began in June this year.

Argent was subsequently commissioned to replace equipment in a number of kitchens, which entailed planning the refurbishments to coincide with the school holidays, ensuring the kitchens were fully operational before the students returned.
