Renewal of Edinburgh Cleaning Contracts

Contract Awards, Public Sector, EMEA, Service Provider News
National Galleries of Scotland and Edinburgh City Council have renewed cleaning contracts with ABM UK for several arts and cultural venues in advance of this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world, which takes place from 2nd to 26th August.

 

ABM will continue to service eight locations which hold significant historic and cultural value across the city.

 

National Galleries of Scotland houses a wide range of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present day and the City of Edinburgh Council’s Category A-listed Usher Hall is Scotland’s only five-star concert hall. 

 

The two portfolios include the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art as well as the City of Edinburgh Council’s Usher Hall, Church Hill Theatre, Ross Band Stand and Assembly Rooms Edinburgh.  

 

To support the galleries’ and venues’ busy schedules, the contract requires ABM teams to adopt a flexible approach. Owing to the ever-changing nature of events, performances and exhibitions, the cleaning teams will work closely with each customer to ensure all work is completed on time, and to the highest of standards. Deep cleaning and special cleans will also be delivered in secure areas, for example where precious artwork is stored.  

 

At National Galleries of Scotland, team members are provided with Air Cargo training, due to the gallery’s requirements for shipping valuable artwork in and out globally. Sustainability is high on the agenda, with cleaning products and techniques sympathetic to the age and composition of the buildings. 

 

Commenting on the award, Jenna Pollock, ABM UK’s divisional director for Scotland, said:

"We are especially pleased to continue to work at such historic buildings with national significance. Our teams have extensive briefings so they have a clear understanding of the importance of the guest experience, collections and the buildings themselves."
