ABM UK has secured a four-year contract with the Museum of London’s London Wall, Docklands and Hackney-based sites, worth £2.4m over the term, with the option for both parties to extend the agreement for a further two years.
The contract will see ABM UK supply all three sites with preventative maintenance and reactive works, focusing on mechanical, plumbing, technical building fabric maintenance. An energy manager and apprentice will also be provided by the company, ensuring that all three properties’ energy use remains efficient and cost effective.
Andy Donnell, group managing director of ABM UK, said: “It’s imperative that the Museum of London is continually in optimum operating condition. ABM UK has the necessary technical, mechanical and energy efficiency expertise to ensure that visitors enjoy the museums in comfortable and well-lit surroundings.”
ABM UK will also offer apprenticeship placements during the contract term, supporting the Museum of London’s own education of young talent.
The new contract strengthens ABM UK’s museum portfolio, with the firm counting the London Transport Museum in Convent Garden, the River & Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames and the Honourable Society of Middle Temple as existing clients benefiting from the companies electrical, mechanical and cleaning services.
