Penguin FM Renews Contract with Yorkshire Hotel Group

Penguin FM Renews Contract with Yorkshire Hotel Group
17 November 2020
 

Penguin FM has recently secured a contract renewal with Provenance Inns & Hotels, offering full facilities management for each of the group's seven inns and hotels.

The 12-month contract was awarded after completion of a previous contract which culminated in Penguin supporting Provenance Inns & Hotels with a safe reopening across all of its venues in July 2020.

Penguin FM is a Leeds-based facilities management provider, founded by Edward Wick and Rohin Dhand.

 

Support Through COVID-Secure Reopenings

 

Following the closure of all seven inns and hotels from March – July in the first national lockdown, when the green light was given by the government for hospitality venues to reopen, Penguin FM supported Provenance Inns & Hotels with a number of safety, compliance and upgrade projects, including 40 additional jobs, which were all scheduled and delivered within two weeks.

It’s this responsiveness and capability which Steve Foster, Maintenance Manager at Provenance Inns say the group found vital in enabling a safe reopening: “When we got the go-ahead from the government to reopen, the team at Penguin sprang into action and delivered a number of project works to enable all our venues to safely reopen, from refurbishment works to servicing and upgrades to our internal infrastructure.” 

Edward Wick, Director at Penguin FM says, “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Provenance Inns and we’re really pleased that we could react quickly to support the group with everything required for their all-important reopening.”
