CBRE to Deliver Operational Excellence, Sustainability and World-Class Experience for The University of Glasgow

CBRE today announced that it has been awarded a five-year contract to deliver planned and reactive hard facilities management services for The University of Glasgow.  The contract to maintain the university’s 300+ building estate goes into effect in April.

The University of Glasgow chose CBRE for its outcome-based solution that focuses on delivering operational excellence, sustainability, and world-class user experience for the University of Glasgow community.

I see this as a new beginning for the delivery of property maintenance where our focus will be proactive, preventative repairs. Together with CBRE, we expect to transform the colleague experience when faced with reactive maintenance requirements and deliver quicker, high-quality repairs across our campuses.

Barry Morton, Director of Facilities Services at The University of Glasgow

The quality and pace of our maintenance services are key priorities for the University of Glasgow Estates' team. We are delighted to work with CBRE, the global commercial real estate services leader, to ensure that our campuses offer the best facilities for our world-changing students and colleagues.

Ian A Campbell, Executive Director of Estates at The University of Glasgow

We’re delighted to have this opportunity to work in partnership with the University of Glasgow, becoming the long-term stewards of such a prestigious portfolio.  The University's strategy is clear, and we very much look forward to working with exceptional people brought together by a shared purpose, shared values and the desire to make a difference.
