Case Study – Education

Over 170 years old and with a student population today of over 18,000, this third-level campus occupies 105 hectares.

Service Delivered – Cleaning

THE ISSUE

With 65 buildings in the brief, the scope and scale of the cleaning operation is challenging. The client needed a year-round cleaning service with differing schedules for in-term and out-of-term periods. The campus hosts many and varied events and providing cleaning services around these events was also part of the brief.

THE SOLUTION:

Our commitment to low staff turnover coupled with a high level of investment in training means that our managers and supervisors are able to deliver an excellent service despite the wide range of building type and the many and varied events taking place.

Our investment in the best equipment has been a key factor in our ability to service this client. We use over 50 pieces of machinery including scrubber dryers, mechanical sweepers, carpet machines, sky vacs, road sweepers, gritters, jet washers, power washers, wet and dry vacuums, gum removers and steamers. 

In 2010, the School of Nursing and Midwifery, the School of Sociology and Political Science and the School of Health Sciences, housed in an energy-efficient building of 5,500 square metres, came under our remit. We look after theatres, laboratories, bathrooms, stairways, corridors, public areas, walkways and the comms room.  Grosvenor worked closely with the client team throughout the construction phase and we have continued to maintain this beautiful and landmark building.
