Ravensbourne University London has appointed Pareto FM to provide hard services at its 200,000 square-foot campus on the Greenwich Peninsula in south-east London.
The deal will see Pareto FM deliver all associated mechanical, electrical and fabric-related planned and reactive maintenance.
Ravensbourne has a community of about 2,600 students and offers digital media and design courses from pre-degree, undergraduate and postgraduate to professional short course level.
The institution has a strong track record in graduate employability and business creation. Alongside its student community, Ravensbourne also hosts more than 100 creative technology businesses that use its leading-edge technologies and media resources and collaborate with its student body and industry partners.
Linda Alexander, director of estates and facilities at Ravensbourne University London, said: “We operate one of the most creative and exciting student spaces in the world. Our world-class teaching is driven by industry standards and supported by the latest high-performance technology. Therefore, it is critical to Ravensbourne that we find the right partners who can enable us to maintain our vision and deliver a truly exceptional space for creativity to thrive.
“In Pareto, we found a technology-lead partner that fully understood our strategic goals and was absolutely the right fit culturally. We are excited to see the relationship flourish across the life of the contract and the benefits this partnership will bring.”
Andrew Hulbert, managing director at Pareto FM, said: “To partner with an organisation like Ravensbourne is a genuine privilege. We’d admired Ravensbourne from afar from some time prior to our engagement, especially in relation to their technology and creativity lead culture. We are further building on our industry-leading apprenticeship through this contract and delivery a bespoke offering for this world-leading client. This is Pareto’s entry contract into the university sector and builds on a strong end to 2020.
The company’s other recent contract wins were with King.com and Hearst Magazines UK.
