Brunel University in Uxbridge, West London, has awarded a contract to OCS to provide a range of housekeeping and environmental services, enhancing the student experience across the university’s buildings and estates.
OCS will work with the university to increase service quality and efficiencies over the length of the contract - initially 3 years with a potential 2 year extension. David McAuley, Brunel University’s Support Services Manager, said: “We have invested £300 million in redeveloping the campus over the last few years, with many new and refurbished facilities and more green spaces outside. We look to OCS to help us to ensure that our university buildings and estates are truly world-class.”
Andrew Mortimer, Client Services Director for OCS, commented: “The recent ‘Energy and Effectiveness in Higher Education’ report by Universities UK highlights improved service quality and increased efficiencies that can be gained from outsourcing. We believe that we have the experience and expertise to deliver this through a successful long-term partnership with Brunel University.”
Brunel is a self-contained, campus-based university. On-site facilities include a library, computer centre, academic and teaching buildings, welfare services, social facilities and halls of residence, as well as arts and sports centres which are open to the public.
