Facilities management service provider Servest Group has won a three-year contract with the global art business Sotheby’s to provide cleaning services to locations in London.
The contract will see Servest provide core cleaning, washroom, laundry, consumables and pest control services to all of Sotheby’s properties on New Bond Street and to the Sotheby’s fine art storage facility in Greenford.
This project was awarded to Servest because of its commitment to introducing a transformation programme to increase efficiency and productivity.
Sotheby’s had also been impressed by the exceptional standards of cleaning achieved by Servest on the site of a client in a related field.
Rob Legge, Servest’s CEO UK and Europe, said: “The Servest team is absolutely delighted to have won this contract with the world’s premier auction house. This is testament to our ability to deliver exceptional standards in locations containing some of the world’s finest art and other collectible memorabilia. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver transformational programmes to the finest brands and work with them to provide new concepts and fresh approaches to their operations.”
As of 1st April 2015, Servest and Sotheby’s agreed that cleaners will be paid in line with the current London living wage.
