Interserve Group has won a £3.6 million contract to deliver cleaning services and pest control at the campus of Autonoma University of Madrid.
The one-year deal which has the option to be extended by a further year, involves the delivery of cleaning services, pest control, the replenishment and maintenance of hygiene, bacteriostatic and air freshener containers and waste management services in several university buildings.
Interserve established a Spanish FM business in 1978 which initially focused on cleaning services in the transportation sector. The business has since expanded to include: hospitals, educational settings, industrial premises, shopping centres and offices.
Capabilities have also expanded to include total facilities management services such as: customer attention, maintenance, concierge and services consisting of providing easy access for people with reduced mobility. Interserve has developed a specialism complying with Spanish disability legislation and maintaining environments that enable easy access.
Jeff Flanagan, Managing Director Business and Industry, Interserve, said: “Our teams will be delivering key services including cleaning, the replenishment and maintenance of hygiene and bacteriostatic containers and the management of waste disposal to create the cleanest and safest possible environment for the university’s students, staff and visitors. These services are particularly important during COVID-19 and we know we have the skills and expertise to deliver.
“The contract win reflects our knowledge gained through delivering critical facilities management services to the Spanish educational sector since launching our business in 1978. We employ more than 5,500 people in Spain and this contract further strengthens our reputation as one of the country’s leading facilities management service providers.”
The company already has a strong presence in Madrid, delivering contracts to the Computense University of Madrid.
FMJ has teamed up with Zip Water, creator of award-winning sustainable drinking water systems, to discuss the ways in which FMs can safeguard the provision of essential amenities within the workplace as we emerge into a new era of touch-free, socially distanced offices.
During the event, which will feature a panel of leading FMs and an FM services provider, we will discuss how FM professionals, office managers and HR managers can balance the need to manage shared spaces, such as staff kitchens, while maintaining a safe environment and meeting energy and waste reduction targets. This will include a look at some of the latest touch-free technologies; including apps to manage workflow and hands-free automation (e.g. automatic doors, taps etc).
Join us on Wednesday 25th November at 11:00am for an event which will address the ways FMs can meet their commitment to ensure the wellbeing of people as an integral part of their sustainability remit.
