The Postal Museum Awards Hard FM Contract

Contract Awards, Maintenance Engineering, Service Provider News, United Kingdom
Pareto FM has been selected to provide hard services at The Postal Museum's newly built facility in Clerkenwell, London.


The Postal Museum in Clerkenwell reveals five centuries of British social and communications history as seen through the eyes of its iconic postal service. Alongside permanent exhibition galleries and a temporary exhibition space, Mail Rail – London’s century-old secret Post Office Underground Railway which opened to the public for the first time in 2017 and forms part of a subterranean ride for visitors, complete with miniature carriages, which passes through many of its original tunnels.


The museum itself has its origins in the early 20th century. In the basements of the GPO headquarters, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the National Postal Museum in the City of London in 1969. Built partly to house an award-winning collection of British Victorian stamps – donated by Reginald Phillips in 1965 – the museum provided public access to its collections like never before. In 2004, the collections were transferred by Royal Mail to a newly formed independent charity, The Postal Heritage Trust. The new Postal Museum facility then opened in Autumn 2017.


Announcing the new contract, Tish Jayanetti, Head of Operations & Commercial at The Postal Museum, said:

"We were looking for a provider that could adapt to fit the specific needs of our organisation. We felt that Pareto FM were uniquely positioned against others in the market to deliver a bespoke service tailored to our way of working. We were impressed with their ability to truly embrace our culture, values and design a service provision to suit."


Andrew Hulbert, Pareto FM managing director, added:

"What a way to welcome in 2020! We are so excited to get moving on this project. How many contracts are there that have a fully functional subterranean ride running through them?! We are thrilled and humbled to have been granted this contract and look forward to progressing the service provision.


"This contract further cements Pareto’s position within both the Charity and Museum sector building on the current work with the Design Museum, London Zoo and Amnesty International."
