Following a competitive tender, CBRE was awarded the contract through its technical engineering services arm, Norland Managed Services which it acquired last year.

It will deliver planned mechanical, electrical and building fabric maintenance as well as project, energy and third party contractor management and hard landscaping services across the University’s 88 properties at its Norwich campus. The contract goes live on the 1 September 2015.

The University of East Anglia is an internationally renowned academic institution with social and cultural facilities which is home to over 15,000 students in a 2,500sqft campus. The university is part of the Norwich Research Park that houses over 3,000 scientists, one of Europe’s biggest concentrations of researches.

A spokesperson for the university stated: “The establishment of this contract is a vital aspect of our wider Built Assets strategy and will ensure that we can achieve our objective of delivering a fully compliant, comprehensive risk based maintenance regime.”
