Edinburgh College Learns TFM Lesson

14 July 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
Edinburgh College, Scotland, one of the UK’s largest regional colleges has awarded a hard and soft facilities management contract to ISS Education, part of ISS Facility Services - the division has not only retained its cleaning contract with the College but has added additional sites and services.

Edinburgh College was formed in 2012 following the merger of Edinburgh’s Telford, Jewel & Esk and Stevenson Colleges. ISS services will cover four main campuses and five satellite sites, delivering a mixture of support functions including services such as cleaning, maintenance, security and landscaping.

Chris McDougall, Head of Resources and Facilities at Edinburgh College, said: “This is the first total facilities management contract the college has entered in to. We’re looking to develop the relationship, which will involve the ISS team working closely with our own in-house staff.”
