Natural History Museum extension for EMCOR

10 June 2009

EMCOR Group (UK) has won a three-year extension of its FM contract with London’s Natural History Museum and will provide a wider range of support services.

EMCOR Group (UK) has provided M&E engineering services across all of the Museum’s sites since 2001, ensuring the Museum has a solid infrastructure in which to preserve and display many of the 70 million specimens under its care.

Under the new agreement, EMCOR’s scope of work is extended to include grounds maintenance, managing a helpdesk facility for hard and soft services, management of the cleaning contracts and the provision of a full Computer Aided Design service. The contract includes the main Waterhouse building in South Kensington, which is Grade I listed inside and out, as well as the new Darwin Centre, which opens to visitors in September. The Darwin Centre is the latest addition to the Museum’s portfolio and will provide world­­-class storage facilities, state of the art laboratories that will be used by the world’s leading scientists and innovative public galleries and programmes for visitors.

Robert Lamb, Estates Manager at the Natural History Museum comments: “We were thoroughly impressed with EMCOR’s innovative proposals for the new contract and EMCOR’s approach to service delivery has resulted in a more efficient, cost effective and flexible package. In my experience, true partnering between service provider and client rarely happens, but EMCOR has certainly achieved this at the Natural History Museum. We work together as one team.”

Nick Morris, Managing Director, EMCOR Facilities Services, added: “We are delighted and extremely proud to be working alongside the Natural History Museum, a world class education and scientific research institution. We are looking forward to continuing a long term relationship with the Museum and enhancing its facilities management capabilities even further.”
