Brayborne re-awarded Southampton campus cleaning contract

Brayborne Facilities Services is to provide cleaning services to City College Southampton for a further two-year term without re-tender. City College is a general further education facility providing career-led courses, apprenticeships and education for young people and adults. Located in Southampton city centre, the campus has undergone a huge investment in new facilities and equipment, allowing students to learn and work in real life working environments using industry standard equipment.

Appointed to City College's sites in 2018, Brayborne has subsequently resolved staffing issues, revised scheduling and introduced efficiencies to reduce cost. The 25-strong cleaning staff provide vertical and horizontal day-to-day cleaning together with periodic deep cleans.

"Brayborne have been brilliant," said City College estates and procurement manager, Jackie Nicholas. "They have improved our cleaning process, readily offer flexibility that meets our changing needs, and have been particularly supportive during lockdown. We benefit from a friendly and effective team whose improved morale is reflected in standards and willingness to help. We had no cause to re-tender for this contract and offered the two-year extension to Brayborne."
