Top marks for university contract

Bouygues Energies and Services has secured a 10 year contract to deliver total facilities management for the University of West London (UWL). The university occupies 500,000 square feet of accommodation, and is currently undergoing significant change at its two main sites in Ealing and Brentford with a multi-million investment in new facilities. This redevelopment programme is part of UWL's vision to continually improve the learning and social experience.

The TFM services include building maintenance, cleaning and security, through to a student shuttle bus service and reprographics across the estate. Bouygues Energies and Services will work in partnership with the university to progressively enhance services and find efficiencies for reinvestment in UWL's estate.

Bouygues Energies and Services has also committed to an innovative proposal to provide students with work experience and work placement opportunities over the period of the contract.

Managing director of Bouygues Energies and Services, David Carr, said: “We are exceptionally proud to have this opportunity to work in partnership with one of the capital's leading, modern universities. We fully appreciate and understand this vision, our service delivery is designed to support and enhance their vision, brand value proposition and reputation. This contract award also reinforces our market position in the higher education sector as a provider of quality FM services.”

Professor Peter John, vice-chancellor at the university of West London, said: “We chose to work with Bouygues Energies and Services having undertaken an extensive due diligence and competitive dialogue process. Their track record for providing good customer service across the HE sector was impressive, and their offer to provide student work experience opportunities was very attractive. We look forward to a long and successful partnership to enhance services and deliver efficiencies for the benefit of our students and staff.”
