Facilities management provider Servest Group has won a contract with King's College London to provide cleaning and associated services across its entire estate from 1 September 2014.
The college has four campuses along the Thames as well as a campus at Denmark Hill in south London. The combined total is 411,004m2 gross. The facilities comprise a mixture of scientific areas such as laboratories, classrooms, auditoriums, offices, social space, catering areas and sports facilities, some of which are used 24/7. The facilities also have a variety of users - staff, students, visiting lecturers and academics, scientists, members of the public, and corporate users who rent the spaces outside term time.
“We are delighted to be working with Servest as our strategic partner across our estate,” said Nick O'Donnell, deputy director estates and facilities at King's College London. “This contract offers the opportunity to review the way we deliver our cleaning and associated services and will provide a more environmentally-conscious service.”
“King's College is a prestigious organisation and we are pleased to be partnering with them to provide cleaning and other soft services across their substantial estate,” said Rob Legge, group chief executive officer, UK and Europe at Servest Group.
