Student Roost Expands B38 Hard FM Partnership

Contract Awards, Public Sector, EMEA, Service Provider News

Purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) provider Student Roost has appointed B38 Group as mechanical and electrical (M&E) and HVAC maintenance contractor for its latest property on Pittodrie Street, near the University of Aberdeen's central campus and Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.


Student Roost operates a portfolio of 49 properties across the UK, and was already working with B38 Group who have supplied planned and reactive electromechanical  maintenance services to the company since last summer.


Announcing the three-year contract, Colum Anglin, Student Roost's Head of Property Services, said:

"Having started working with B38 Group almost a year ago, we have been very impressed with their approach. They consistently take ownership of issues and operational challenges and ensure that they see them through to a satisfactory conclusion.


"It is essential that our FM services provider is sympathetic to our residents, ensuring they experience as little disruption as possible, and B38 Group has been able to do this. They have lived up to their promises and proved themselves to be a committed partner. We're pleased to be extending our contract with them as we expand our portfolio and new properties go live."


Gareth Farmer, senior account manager for B38 Group, added:

"Strategically, growing our presence in student accommodation and education is one of our core ambitions, so to be working with one of the largest providers is a real coup."
