Nviro has won a three-year contract with MidKent College, supplying cleaning services to the Maidstone and newly renovated Medway campuses. The contract, worth in excess of £1.5 million, will provide a night time cleaning regime to both campuses.
A dedicated contract manager will work across both locations to give stability and consistency of high standards to the contract. Nviro has introduced 'team cleaning' across both campuses and each team will be headed by a team leader. This method of cleaning in a group ensures maximum productivity from the whole team as there are no lone working situations, and it's more energy efficient due to lights being turned on and off in each area that is cleaned.
MidKent College is a further education establishment with around 8500 students aged 16 and upwards studying at both campuses. In 2009 £86 million was spent on building the new Medway campus and after opening in 2010, a £22 million refurbishment in 2012 was carried out on the Maidstone campus to bring its facilities up to the standard of the ultra-modern Medway location.
As part of the contract Nviro has introduced new, highly efficient machinery to improve productivity, thus driving down costs and improving quality. In total, in excess of £30,000 of new machinery has been installed across the contract.
Brian Warren, managing director of Nviro, said: “Nviro is proud to have been selected to provide our cleaning solution to the students and staff at MidKent College. We are committed to ensuring that the college benefits from our knowledge and expertise which is vital in maintaining the upkeep of the £11 million restoration works recently carried out onsite. I look forward to us developing a lasting partnership with the college in the years to come.”
