The three-year contract will see Churchill providing cleaning services across the RCA’s three London campuses in Kensington, White City and Battersea.
The university has more than 2,200 Master’s and doctoral students, and employs 1,000 professionals including scholars, art and design practitioners, along with specialists, advisers and distinguished visitors.
Errol Ali, Royal College of Art Operations Manager, said: “We are pleased to partner with Churchill noting their impressive reputation and high standard of work. They possess the specialist knowledge to maintain the specific requirements unique to the RCA.”
There are 12 buildings over three campuses based in central London at Kensington, Battersea and White City. For all sites, Churchill will deliver general cleaning, washroom services, and periodic cleaning.
Joe Saisi, Operations Director at Churchill Contract Services, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to work with a world-renowned, leading arts university. We work closely alongside the University to create a clean inspiring creative environment, to make sure that we live up to what is expected for the number one arts and design university in the world.”
