MITIE wins FM contract with Durham University

18 February 2010

This 4-year £5m FM contract will cover both of Durham University’s locations in the city of Durham and at its Queen's Campus in Stockton.

MITIE is providing both soft and hard FM services with a team of more than 90 people to look after the buildings that house Durham’s 15,000 students and 3,000 staff. The contract commenced in late January with MITIE’s mobilisation process ensuring a seamless transfer of the security, cleaning, grounds and building maintenance services from day one.
Janet Turnbull, Account Director for MITIE commented: “We are delighted to have secured this contract to deliver FM services to one of the UK’s leading universities and look forward to improving the facilities management services and helping the University to continue to provide its excellent facilities to its students.
Laura Watson, Deputy Director of Procurement for Durham University said: “Durham University chose MITIE to deliver FM services to the University following a stringent tendering process which demonstrated that MITIE understood our requirements better than anyone else and could add real value to the service delivery. We look forward to working with them to transform the services at the University.”
