Interserve Group and the University of Sussex have won a contract extension worth £30 million a year to provide TFM services at the University of Sussex as part of joint venture Sussex Estates and Facilities (SEF) until December 2024.
Interserve and the University of Sussex formed joint venture company SEF in 2013. Its TFM activities include 23 service lines involving 290 colleagues - spanning from soft FM to maintenance, security, energy and waste disposal.
SEF has also been a key partner in several major projects on the campus, including investment in student accommodation, construction of a multistorey car park and the installation of more than 3,000 solar panels.
Martin Burholt, Interserve's managing director international FM and UK Communities, said: "The contract extension illustrates our ability to work together with our joint venture partners to create a unique partnership that delivers a best-in-class TFM service to the University of Sussex."
"An example of the value that Interserve adds to contracts is the implementation of the latest computer-aided facilities management technology that has helped SEF drive efficient and effective service delivery and performance reporting. We have also used Interserve's customer experience team to review how we increase customer satisfaction and further improve service delivery."
