Derwent Facilities Management has won a five-year contract to deliver a total FM contract to Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) in Poole, Dorset.
The contract covers the whole AUB campus comprising 19 buildings and grounds including Madeira Road halls of residence, which hosts 378 students, and the new campus halls of residence, which are currently under construction and will host 299 students once completed.
The contract is worth at least £8 million over the course of the five years and includes an option to extend for a further two years.
Derwent will provide a full facilities management service including cleaning, security, grounds maintenance, pest control, mechanical and electrical services, planned preventative maintenance, as well as look after students in their halls of residence offering a range of student activities and support services.
Janice Boucher, managing director at Derwent fm, said: “We are delighted to win this contract at Arts University Bournemouth, which builds on the successful relationship we have built with AUB whilst managing Madeira Road halls of residence. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them.”
Arts University Bournemouth was established in 1885 as a specialist art institution, and is now a university, offering specialist education in art, design, media and performance across the creative industries.
