London-based facilities management group Incentive FM has secured a contract extension at Somerset House.
Under the new deal, Incentive FM will provide cleaning and maintenance services to support the trust, tenants and various events that take place at the site throughout the year, including cinema nights, exhibitions and gigs and the popular courtyard ice rink that runs throughout winter.
The contract extension follows a four-year period in which Incentive FM worked closely with the Somerset House Trust, helping to conserve and develop the gardens and open spaces to the public.
Somerset House attracts over 3 million visitors a year, offering a diverse and dynamic public programme of contemporary arts and culture and home to a community of creative businesses, artists and makers.
Mark Figg, FCIOB, head of buildings of Somerset House Trust, said: “The Incentive FM team has been a great support for the Trust as we continue to develop the site into an exciting mixed use space, which includes office, exhibition, event and retail facilities. They help us to ensure that an outstanding visitor experience is delivered every day.”
Bruce McDonnell, Managing Director at Incentive FM, said: “This contract forms another part of the exciting portfolio of iconic destination properties that the Incentive FM Group provides service and support to, including The Covent Garden Estate, The Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Liverpool Football Club.”
