CMS on stage at Newcastle Theatre Royal

Commercial Maintenance Services UK Ltd (CMS) has won a contract at one of the North East’s most prominent buildings.

Headquartered in Gateshead, the facilities maintenance company will service and maintain the heating system at Newcastle Theatre Royal, situated in the city’s Grainger Town heritage quarter.

The project is a complex one due to the historic nature of the building and because it comprises different areas that have been added or created over the years.

The contract will involve maintaining a plant room as well as individual gas boilers spread throughout the theatre, as well as 24/7 repair support provided by its emergency response team.

Bethany Waterworth, the Theatre’s Operations Coordinator, said: “The enjoyment and comfort of our customers is a top priority and ensuring our heating system is running efficiently is an integral part of this.

“We also have a duty of care to preserve such a historic building to the highest standards and it is important that we use contractors that are capable of delivering a quality service.” 

Nic Smith, CMS’s Operations Director, said: “Newcastle Theatre Royal is a much-loved part of the city’s landscape and is familiar to thousands of people in the region and beyond, who have enjoyed the wide variety of shows staged there.

“It is an immense honour to help maintain the critical services of such a prestigious building, that is one of the country’s leading theatres, and help it continue to offer a comfortable environment for audiences.”

FMJ and Grundon Waste Management have launched the 2021 waste and recycling management survey. It’s the fourth year for the annual appraisal of how FMs manage their waste and recycling activities and one which marks an unprecedented period of disruption to services due to the pandemic.

In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions – aided by the advice and experience of our editorial steering committee.

The results of the 2021 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
