Monthind Clean wins contract for Norfolk's New Quadram Institute
East of England contract cleaning company Monthind, has secured a multi-service line contract at the new state-of-the-art Quadram Institute (QI) medical facility.
As CBRE Asset Services' chosen partner for cleaning and associated services, Monthind has been appointed as the provider of a range of services including cleaning, window cleaning, pest control, grounds maintenance and waste management. Monthind was also awarded via Wates Construction - the construction firm responsible for delivery of the QI - the contract to provide the post-build clean prior to its opening.
Designed by the Quadram Institute Bioscience (formerly the Institute of Food Research), and the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, the QI is an £81 million-pound medical facility that will capitalise on the world-class bioscience expertise based on the Norwich Research Park. The QI will create a new interface between food science, gut biology, and human health and disease for the health and wellbeing of a generation.
"We are delighted to have been awarded this contract with CBRE and to provide our services to the QI which is one of the region's most prestigious and high-profile facilities," says Richard Redding, director of sales at Monthind.
"Our ability to offer several disciplines, to deliver a proven high-quality service, our local management team and the thousand plus colleagues we employ across the region, proved a key part in assisting CBRE to win the total facilities management contract. Monthind's team is already on-site at the QI delivering a phased builder's clean, and our project team is busy planning the mobilisation of the contract ahead of the QI's official opening.
"As the East of England's largest independent and local company, we are very proud to have been part of the CBRE winning team that has secured this prestigious facilities management contract. Delivering our cleaning services here helps us continue to grow, and to create further employment in the region."
Lee Heggan of CBRE's winning bid team, says of Monthind: "We were impressed by the expertise, commitment and professionalism shown by the Monthind team. They took on-board the responsibility of all soft services, and have delivered everything on time, in line with our budgets, with the expertise usually seen in bigger firms, and with a passion those firms sometimes lack. We've already begun working with Monthind on the next project and I've a feeling there will be many more to follow."
