The University of Oxford has awarded FM provider Emcor UK a multimillion-pound hard facilities management contract.
The five-year deal includes the potential for a two-year extension.
Emcor UK will be responsible for the provision of services to medical research buildings at the university estate - this currently covers 30 buildings, spanning 100,000 square metres.
As part of the contract, the FM provider will supply planned, preventative and reactive maintenance as well as helpdesk services and specialist supply chain monitoring on a diverse range of plant, equipment and systems.
To complement the university and city's continuing Low Carbon City mission and sustainable transport objectives, Emcor UK produced a sustainable programme that aims to invest in the most environmentally efficient ways to commute.
Specifically, Emcor UK will provide a fleet of eco-efficient vehicles to move specialist engineers around the various sites.
