The renewed contract will see Mitie continue to provide integrated facilities management (IFM) to the higher education institute, at its main Durham campus and the Queen Campus in Thornaby.
A team of 100 people will be responsible for delivering a comprehensive range of services including cleaning, landscaping, pest control and total security management.
The contract award builds on Mitie’s expertise in the education sector, where the company already works with a number of prestigious establishments including Queen Mary University and Oxford Brookes.
Phil Holland, managing director for Mitie’s IFM business, said:
“We are delighted to be extending our relationship with Durham University. In the past four years we’ve been committed to transforming FM services and have continued to add value through altering work routines, providing supportive management to the facilities teams and acting as a trusted advisor for the client, offering expert advice and recommendations on service delivery.
“We are now looking forward to further developing a tailored FM strategy and providing the highest quality of services for the University’s students, staff, visitors and guests alike.”
Mitie was originally awarded the contract in 2010.
